Snaking texts

Eric Crump

Yes! This is what I've got in mind (but always do such a shoddy job of articulating). People submit texts that they've composed or found, they are stored in RhetNet, but those chunks of words continue to grow as layers of commentary accrues, as tangential rhizomes sprout and wriggle off in new directions.

Byzantine lexias. I love that. Might have been a better name for the journal!
