    2. It suggests that differences in cognitive patterns between print and electronic works, assumptions of what constitutes the quality of "literariness,"

    1. Electronic literature does not reside in any single medium or institution.

      yesssssssss there's no overbearing authority on what is considered electronic literature or not

    2. Novels that take the form of emails, SMS messages, or blogs

      there are so many hardcopy novels that take this format though, i wouldn't say that it is exclusively for e-lit

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

      i strongly agree with the "take advantage" part of the sentence. this eliminates things such as e-books and pdfs of novels -- they don't count as e-lit in this definition because they take the form of hard-copy books; they have pages and margins that make them look like a book. that's not taking advantage of computing devices.
