As I finished the print essay, it became compellingly clear that there should be a hypertext as well. Ideally this should have been what I have elsewhere called a "native" hypertext -- i.e. a network of writings conceived and executed electronically. You will not find such a thing here, though if you want to see something of that sort, visit Nancy Kaplan's space,"E-Literacies" or my own essay, "Shadow of an Informand".
The essay is presently configfured as a single long page, about 25 kilobytes in size. It could take a while to load. If you still want to read "Getting Over the Edge," proceed.
