A decade ago I argued in Hypertext that linked, networked digital text, which most of us known in the form of the WWW, had converged with contemporary critical theory, particularly that of poststructuralism. In Hypertext 2.0 I added that a similar convergence has occurred with scholarly editing, who fundamental attitudes have become far more radical than that of most poststructuralists. If there is ever a Hypertext 3.0 I would add to these convergences those of film theory and postcolonial theory as well. Several people, including Andrew Morison, originally of the University of Zimbabwe and now Oslo, and Jaishree K. Odin, University of Hawaii at Manoa, have argued that theories of hypertextuality and postcoloniality have also converged so much that one can usefully them to illuminate each other.
Two others, both Brown undergraduates-- David Lichtenstein with his notion of Caribbean polyrhythm and David Yun with his notions of the hypertext self as applied to the Chinese diaspora . . .
