A-LINEAR: the hypertextual environment allows for the a-linear progression of ideas, in which the reader follows his or her interest, rather than being guided by the author from start to finish. The option of writing a-linearly frees authors from artificiaLly imposing hierarchies on their thought- a common logistical necessity when organizing ideas in a linear form.
