At openingsources.com I found it intriguing to discover how two competing types of people seemed to exist within that virtual space. One type (A) greatly used sarcasm and parodic intertextuality to modify the text into sentences which would not necessarily make much sense without the cultural intertextuality present. The other type (B) would go for the more traditional prose or poetry approach with grammatical and pronounceable sentence structures. Between these two types of people, it is largely a matter of cause and effect: A will correct whatever B has written into something that A believes to be correct. Likewise, B will then correct what A has written into something that B believes to be correct. A group of B’s may then continue to rule the text for weeks, until A takes over with its own army supporting A’s ideology.
In this sense it would seem that openingsource.com is influenced by the various other literary genres available to its users (parody, prose, poetry, etc.). On that level, openingsource.com is a hypertext which not only consists of hyperlinks, images and running text, but also consists of references to literary genres outside of the hypertext genre itself. The hypertext genre is just as cultural as it is technological and digital.
