Language as Transmission: Poetry's Electronic Presence

by Loss Pequeño Glazier

What writing is, becomes altered by how it is physically written through its production technology, its files, codes and URLs. Even the URL itself contributes in a small way to our experience of reading. (What are you thinking as you type in:
/theories/hypertext.html versus
theories/tomfoolery/hypertext.html?) To discover "poetry" in coming years one must learn to see through a new lens. The excerpt from Loss Pequeño Glazier's book gives an idea what is to be taken into account.
