    1. Students inculcated from birth by digital media will ultimately be the final arbiters of its popularity and growth.

      I think e-lit will have to become more and more included in technology, since it it obvious children nowadays knew how to use electronic devices even before reading. With implementing e-lit as a quality element (and not just not-fantasy-enhancing gameplay) the culture will still have ability to grow. Just that the libraries will be more electronic.

    1. The confrontation with technology at the level of creation is what distinguishes electronic literature from, for example, e-books, digitized versions of print works, and other products of print authors “going digital.”

      I cannot completely agree with limitations put with the level of creation. True there are literature "going digital" and cannot count as e-lit, but how about taking already created version and than translate and enrich it to electronic version?

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

      I agree with using the capabilities and contexts, since this means we get to implement more and more elements in the "literature" we create. However, the "computer" can be used also in philosophical way to expand the meaning on one way and to too much limited on another. What about all the phone devices or other electronic devices, even the simplest one. They are becoming a useful way of expressing and e-lit is a main way to do this.
