Connecting textual segments: A brief history of the web hyperlink

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingBidrag til bog/antologi

In “Connecting textual segments: A brief history of the web hyperlink” Niels Brügger investigates the history of one of the most fundamental features of the web: the hyperlink. Based on the argument that the web hyperlink is best understood if it is seen as another step in a much longer and broader history than just the years of the emergence of the web, the chapter traces the history of how segments of text have deliberately been connected to each other by the use of specific textual and media features, from clay tablets, manuscripts on parchment, and print, among others, to hyperlinks on stand-alone computers and in local and global digital networks.
