This dissertation is a hypertextual performance in nonlinear form. It is both expressive and paradigmatic, descriptive and analytical, as it seeks the cultural logic of an electronically-linked society in cyberspace: The Xenaverse. As such it exists on the Web and on CD-ROM. This presentation consists of webbed nodes of hypertext rather than chapters, both reflecting and contributing to the webbed electronic environment in which the Xenaverse exists.
