...attach to any single word or phrase, thus promoting reader choice, many early systems, including current World Wide Web viewers and their underlying hypertext markup language (HTML) code, do not permit this crucial feature. Web 2.0, a term coined in the late 1990s, refers to websites that permit readers to add links, text, or images and therefore represent a considerable advance on earlier basic HTML. Nonetheless, Web 2.0 is still Hypertext 0.5, largely because the software of blogs, and sites such as Facebook, present information in the form of a linear...

...a flattening (exchange principle), and also a hierarchization (with capital at the apex). We might say that such an Assemblage is one that subjects its people (albeit a subjection often masked by slogans invoking individual freedom and the possibilities of participation, such as Web 2.0, Nike’s “Just Do It!,” and the like). These two Assemblages cannot be reduced to specific epochs, for they can, and invariably do, coexist within the same period (for example, and as Guattari points out, animist beliefs and practices coexist with advanced capitalism in the...

...or leave in multiple places. Even when not considered as an open-ended, perpetually unfinished textuality, hypertext in the form of individual webs causes problems for the critic, in part because they refuse to be mastered. Because many webs are simply too large and complex to follow every possible reading path, critics can no longer pretend to master the documents about which they write. Because each reading of a web produces an individual performance, critics will consequently have to work in ways resembling those of music or drama critics, who must base...
