Hypertext is by definition modular, since each linked document (chunk or lexia) forms a separate module. What are the implications of such modularity?
- All hypertexts are in a sense always unfinished since one can always add another module.
- Hyprtext projects don't seem to need or demand complete organization; they may be unsymmetrical, or they may grow and change.
- In many cases, one doesn't have to have a finished hypertext project or web for it to be usable.
- In educational or informational hypertexts, for example, one can use them when they are only partially complete.
