    1. The contemporary email newsletter is not a novel form; often it amounts to a new delivery system for the same sorts of content — essays, explainers, Q&As, news roundups, advice, and lists — that have long been staples of online media. (Subscribe to enough newsletters and sort them the right way, and it’s possible to re-create something like an RSS-feed reader.)

      Email delivery apparently isn't much different than RSS. What sorts of functionality do RSS readers provide over email in terms of search, filtering, and presentation? Surely RSS is more powerful at slicing and dicing one's reader data.

      How do all these different forms of content fit into the greater set of genres in Western culture?

    1. Think of the most common forms of influencer content: There are makeup tutorials and exercise regimens and tips for heterodox diets. There are bathroom selfies and self-portraits in bed and endless I just woke up confessions.

    1. Digital logics can be a bit more pushy than print logics. So much for the supposed freedom of electronic literature

      I think you're right to hedge this point with "can be." I'd argue that "electronic literature" can take a bazillion different forms, some more "pushy," some less "pushy" than ink-on-paper print texts (with regard to their ordering "logics"). I'd therefore urge reformulating your point more along these lines: "The ordering logics of some digital genres [or: ... of some currently popular digital genres?] are in some ways more pushy and prescriptive than the ordering logics of many traditional paper-print genres."
