Web essays

This page is the lead for Conrad’s Web essays

It is more fashionable perhaps to be a blogger than to be a writer of essays and articles, but the essay as a literary form has always appealed to me. I propose to create some content here which will be longer and less ‘of the moment’ than the typical blog post.

An essay on the Web is also something which its author may change over time, perhaps as new facts emerge. Web essays may also develop in relationship with each other, content might be swapped between them, and hypertext links may substitute for saying the same thing twice.
