    1. Other artists have come at it from the more familiar (at least in the community) angle emerging out of the flurry of interest in hypertext as a next step in the evolution of written language — the book is dead, long live the link.

      This author has a more humorous take on the definition of e-lit. Saying that "the book is dead, long live the link". Writing evolves every step of the way in our lives and has become mainly digitized.

    1. we lack a reliable way of filtering out current uses of “electronic literature” that do not refer to literary works using computation. It is also likely that many books that use one term also use another, so that some of the books counted are duplicates. The data that the Ngram Viewer uses can be downloaded, so with time and some programming skills some but not all of these problems could be addressed.

      I feel like this author was trying to make the point that everyone will have a different definition for E-lit because we can't filter what is and what isn't e-lit using a computer program.

    1. Put simply, Electronic Literature is considered a "born digital" art form with unique approaches to thinking about and working with digital technologies for the purpose of creating literary art.

      Reading stories on my nook or ipad or even my phone that previously was published in Print is an amazing feat in my opinion. I loved being able to have e-textbooks while I went to school.

    1. works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer.

      I agree with the others that these works don't need to be provided or looked at on a computer, but can be looked at on a smart phone, tablet, smart watch, etc.
