In our reading it was good to see how Lanlow made a shift in mediums form what was once used mediums, like newspapers, to online mediums, like blogs. I felt like I could be more engaged in the reading since in a way it is now involving me and my future. I'm sure it's the same with many of you (since most of us are EWM majors). This only means that we have to be more accepting of hypertext since it is becoming a more apparent thing on our lives. "Composed bodies of linked text..." (as Landlow describes it) We do this everyday. We do this with our blogs, facebook, emails, and the list can go on. Those are just basic everyday uses. Imagine what can be created or what has been created. Can we exceed to something alomst unimaginable? According to Landlow's text our possiblities can expand and it seems like something to take advantage of.
