Aarseth: Cybertext, as now should be clear, is the wide range... of possible textualities seen as a typology of machines, as various kinds of literary communication systems where the functional differences among the mechanical parts play a defining role in determining the aesthetic process.

(not even saying this is a bad use of hypertext, it's just that out of context this bold assertion—"Nylons are tights"—cheerfully popping up like a tart from a toaster is very funny to me)
(Aarseth quote from _Cybertext: Perspectives on Ergodic Literature_, p. 22, nylons from https://thecorrespondent.com/100/the-new-dot-com-bubble-is-here-its-called-online-advertising/13228924500-22d5fd24 which I have just started to read)
