The Evolution of Internet Genres.
Bauman, Marcy
Computers and Composition, v16 n2 p269-82 1999
Notes new Internet writing environments differ significantly from print forms: they allow texts to evolve--to change their purpose and audience over time. Suggests they allow for new forms of collaboration--texts organize themselves without an omniscient editor shaping them. Concludes that, as a profession, composition instructors need to understand and experiment with these forms. (RS)
