The Plan: "Hypertext Studios"
(Salvo's Story)

The best way to think about this new "hypertext studio" is to imagine a scenario where rather than many film technicians working to create the set, and the makeup, and the costumes, you would instead have a shop of writers. Each team would have a manager and each group would have a writing area or goal, centered on the user's experience and expectation with the text.

For instance, there may be a whole team dedicated to the project of writing architectural documents, those documents describing the rules or norms for the rules: the kinds of clothes characters wear, the speech style and patterns, the shared history. With these documents, different teams of writers create content consistent with these "rules."
