We receive a lot of mail regarding The Electronic Labyrinth. Before emailing us, see if your question is answered here:
1. Do you have a question about a hardware or software product?
We are not vendors or associated with vendors. Please be aware that any vendors mentioned herein could very well have completely different versions of their products available or may in fact be out of business. Please contact the companies in question for up-to-date information.
2. Are you concerned that the information in The Electronic Labyrinth is out of date?
The Electronic Labyrinth presents the results of a research project mostly undertaken in 1993. Many recent texts, authoring systems and theoretical approaches are not covered. Despite this, there remains a need for a basic introduction to the history and concepts of hypertext technology and literature. It is in answer to that need we first decided to make this study available, and have decided to keep it available.
3. Do you want to tell us about your site?
Thanks! We do care about the ever-expanding field of hypertext literature, and will check out your work as time permits. But we unfortunately do not always have the time to respond personally.
4. Do you wish us to link to your site?
Please do not ask us to link to your site. That is not the function of The Electronic Labyrinth. This document was originally designed to be self-contained; it contains minimal links to external documents. It is also a static document, with rare updates. Instead, check out Hyperizons.
5. Do you want further information on a topic?
We enjoy correspondence with those interested in subjects covered by The Electronic Labyrinth. But unfortunately we receive many queries that are basically asking "can you do my homework for me?" We are not likely to respond to questions that can easily be answered with an Internet or library search. Use our bibliography to pursue further the issues we raise.
6. Do you want to quote our work in your papers/projects?
We wish to disseminate the information in this study as much as possible and hence welcome outside links to The Electronic Labyrinth. Please follow the usual code of conduct for citations. Contact us for permission to reproduce significantly the content found herein.
