Ten Predictions About Digital Literature

Within five years:

(1) Many online journals and magazines now only
publishing traditional text-based fiction and poetry will, as part of
their online offerings, publish digital literature on a regular basis;

(2) Most major universities and many colleges (if
they don’t already) will offer courses in New Media, and those courses
will cover/include digital literature;

(3) Accomplished scholars who assess the whole of
digital literature by examining exemplary models from early hypertexts
will be saying “oops!” and seeking a vocabulary that accepts the
continual flux and explosive change of current practices in digital
