J. Blustein's Hypertext
Welcome to two views, and many definitions, of hypertext on the WWW. Although I created and maintain both of the views, I think they are quite different from each other.
You might like to use the sitemap to get an overview of the site, or just to jump around.
I've put some definitons of hypertext in another webpage to help answer the questions above.
A brief definition is that we are people who are (mostly) writers, designers/architects of new hypermedia systems, and theoreticians who are passionate about hypertext. I've put a longer definition of the hypertext community in another webpage.
If you are not very familiar with hypertext, or you need a reference

If you are interested in using, studying, designing, or playing with
hypertext then you might want to attend some hypertext events. There
are regular on-line chats, various blogs, and at least one
hypertext-specific wiki, and at least three conference events. If you have something constructive to add to
the ongoing discussion (or better an article or demonstration for a
conference) then the so-called
hypertext community will welcome
