As much as our staff has tried to view hypertext style in a wide sense during the formation
and publication of this journal, we have come under criticism at times for holding a limited
view of hypertext. Some have criticized us for not being bold and experimental
enough with the hypertexts we publish, claiming we are hardly going beyond the conventions of
print journals. Others have rebelled against stylistic limitations
we have proposed in order to maintain some sense of design consistency and readability. And still
others seem to cringe at the thought of any limitations being placed on hypertext, since the
medium holds almost utopian promise for some people.
||Criticisms against the Kairos View of Hypertext|
I am not discounting those criticisms here -- many of them are valid and have given our staff much to
consider -- or am I going to defend the Kairos editorial staff or position right now. I just want to
acknowledge the wide variety of views on hypertext within our professional community and note how this journal's staff is dedicated to exploring these media and styles, not dictating them.
