Due next class (Tuesday)

1. Bring in the html page of your poem, so we can look at them in class.

2. Read the Borges story I handed out, "The Garden of Forking Paths"

3. Read the below article, which uses that story as a jumping-off point:

4. Write a short paper answering these questions (in response to the story and the linked reading):

a. List three ways in which reading on the internet is different than reading from a book.

b. How is the web-reading experience "non-linear"? And how does linear thinking differ from non-linear thinking?

c. In what way does non-linear reading invite us to be the "author" of texts that we read, even if we didn't in fact write those texts?
