nice poem, February 13, 2014
by namekuseijin (anywhere but home)

Genuinely nice. Presentation is fine too.

I just question: why, why clicking links when I could just read it all in a single page? what gain is there in this clicking and short bursts of text obsession in this age?

it inspires me a haiku

somewhere high up there
jays rule the moon

hope it's not too long to the twitter gen...

Counter-question - why not? Why shouldn't poetry be presented in new, visually interesting ways?

But also, there are branching points which lead to different passages and change the poem, so it couldn't just be written on a single page.

poetry certainly can and should be presented in new ways.

so, great, it's hypertext. Perhaps it also should be posted instead on HTDB, best known as www.

Heh, I think you got auto-censored there, but I can guess what you were going to say. Hypertext and interactive fiction, as you well know, are not mutually exclusive. You want to draw a strict line that only you think is important. Feel free to set up two new sites and migrate and split everything up how you like it and then if anyone else cares as much as you do they can use those instead. But it won't ever happen by itself, because everyone isn't you.

by www I meant the worldwide web of hypertext pages.

no need for any sites other. IFDB seems the right place to IF.

the www seems the right place for hypertext
