Bolter has some very interesting insights throughout these chapters on the progression of text to hypertext through the scroll, codex, the book, and now hypertext. The developments of the "refashioning" that occurs through this feels to me like it just is available to a wider audience. As each of these "technologies" have been refashioned it has moved to more and more people and Bolter says that people have become "more visual and less oral." I agree with this statement because instead of having just one person preaching a text everyone has their own and can read and analyze at their own pace.
Bolter does a very good job of explaining hypertext in an interesting way. I like the way he sees hypertext in a user interface explaination. He sees the hypertext as a normal screen and that everything on the screen, all of the text and other items that are present are all connected to future things which seperates them from normal text because he makes it seem to me that normal text is "flat."
