Figure Four. Screenshot of this essay being written as a hypertext in Storyspace. There are two 'web' views of the document open, showing different parts of the web, and two 'text spaces' open. Any number of these can be open at the same time, and linking can be performed across spaces and views. Links can be from words, phrases, paragraphs, 'text spaces', pictures, or parts of pictures, and can go to any combination of these. In addition links can go to sounds and video files (see Figure Five). The 'convergences' web window on the right contains various text spaces, each of which in turn could be 'opened' as a web window and used for further text spaces.
