CoverWebs: Promise and Praxis
(Salvo's Story)

The CoverWeb developed, over a set amount of time, with authors working on their "own" sections of the document, though I had hoped documents would proceed in a collaborative writing environment.

Some of these authors felt their work was being invaded by the questions posed by co-authors while others welcomed the questions as means to overcome the fright of the blank page — really the blank screen, or more accurately in HTML code, the blank space between the header and footer of HTML document formatting.

But the joy of wreading these CoverWebs was limited to the participants in CoverWeb creation. I have heard little feedback from readers of the "finished" CoverWebs — though again, terms like "finished" still feel strange to me even though I have not worked on these documents in three or five years.

The CoverWeb is static once published.
