Nelsonian Transliterature as a Form of Hypertext

Theodor H. Nelson's transliterature hypertext, which he demonstrated in last night's opening lecture, is perhaps implicit in his proposal for stretchtext because it too assembles a textual collage from multiple sources, but in the case of transliterature these sources are dispersed and drawn from websites around the world rather than stored in the document itself, waiting to be activated.

Forms of reader empowerment: Readers can always find (1) author's sources and (2) full context of these sources.
