    Dear Prof. McCarty,

    Hi, I thought this might interest you.."Ten years ago, Robert Coover
    helped usher in the artistic and technological revolution of literary
    hypertext. But, in the below essay, he is talking of the Golden age of
    hypertext is over!! What will be next? Steven Johnson in his essay, also
    asked, "Why the web isn't growing smarter with old age?"

    Literary Hypertext: The Passing of the Golden Age by Robert Coover can be
    found at: <http://www.feedmag.com/document/do291_master.html>

    DIGITAL THINKING: Page Versus Pixel can be found at

    Written on the Web: Carolyn Guyer examines the state of hypertext fiction at

    Lost In The Labyrinth by Chase Madar can be found at
    Regarding Jorge Luis Borges: Is there a real author buried beneath the
    hype! A tribute to give a master of enigmatic understatement.

    The Iron Curtain: Dan Halpern on phantom formations and the future of
    Eastern European Literature..can be found at

    Jorge Luis Borges ON "The Garden of Forking Paths" ..in the words of
    Borges, "..No one realized that the book and the labyrinth were one and
    the same.." Was Borges ahead of time? The greatest inspiration and
    motivation for Borges' work was a phenomenon that was not invented until
    four years after his death in 1986: The World Wide Web, now someone is
    calling as World Wide Wait or Worth Wiles Webs.

    I hope, you would like the above references!!
    Kind Regards
