Hay(na)ku Brilliance

Hypertext lit is a tricky proposition merging art with technology while bending our perceptions of Authorial Intent, Reader Response, and Linearity.

The possibilities for creating new and complex forms of art, though, are endless, but require a quality of courage and flexibility often rare.

It's a brilliant thing, then to find The Jainaku Project emerge and grow.

Brilliant and inspiring. Congratulations, Ernesto!

Thanks a lot, Bec. You exaggerate, of course. I had been meaning to attempt something like "the Project" for a long time so I decided to give it a try. I know it's "tricky" (in more than one sense), but I just thought that I would hate myself if I did not at least try.

I am very, very glad you have liked it.

Exaggerate? No one else has done it with hay(na)ku, 'nesto, not that I've come across. It opens up a whole new set of artistic possiblities. Besides your lovely poetry, the sheer insight into both the form and the technique is really delightful.
