It is a renaissance of scholar activity in this area. I would not dare to call it again "hypertext", since this term was abused to the point in which everybody was writing about it without experimental support. The 90's were a time in which there was more critique written about hypertexts than literary hypertexts. Many promises about the media were made that could not possibly be fulfilled. Now we have learned more about a media that is massively used. In the scientific method, a hypothesis is built, an experiment is conducted and finally the hypothesis is adjusted with the results of the experiment. This process did not happen with early hypertexts. A hypothesis was made, a few hypertexts were produced, but before the experiment yielded significant results the hypothesis was validated, which derailed the field for a decade. Nevertheless, digital narrative is a real possibility; text in produced and consumed in digital media; people is reading and writing at an unprecedented rate; reading and writing fiction still raises interest. Hypertext might be dead, in the sense that classic hypertext theory did not survive the expectations it created, but digital narrative is alive and gaining ground.
