Links make web content writers anxious. Because they fear losing a reader to the link, they use rhetorical techniques to neutralize and naturalize them. The alternatives - to write more engagingly, to write to incorporate and guide the inclusion of linked material - is not considered.

For your notes, compile a list of ideas from the sources. Use headings and subheadings (h2 and h3). Maybe use bullets to indicate developed ideas. Organize your notes by idea, or by source, but organize them in some way. The act of organizing is a way of creating an opportunity for insight.

What they tend to overlook is //meaning//. Links provide the means for creating meaning, just as semantic and syntactical elements do. How the link is to be related to the target is something the writer has to craft.

For this project we're **not** interested in those big navigational links that hold the architecture of the site together. We're focusing on the embedded hypertext links we encounter as part of reading content. It's the embedded links that you as a writer create to enmesh your work with the rest of the web:
We're focusing on embedded links in content you write. Creating links to other material on the web (texts, videos, music, games, images, ...) has become part of what //writing// means when writing is on the web. That means that, as a writer, you need to find out things out there that your writing links to. And that in turn means that the article you're writing becomes a starting point for a wider, broader, more extended reading network.
The Don't Make Me Think crowd is (rightly) concerned with the frequency of links in an article, where they are placed, how they are signaled, how the link text is phrased, where the link takes the reader. The readings under Style Guides and Web Designers will fill you in on these matters. But their concerns tend to envision the reader as captive, a consumer, and a consumer that can't be too challenged.

Additions:
We're focusing on embedded links in content you write. Cutting links to other material on the web (texts, videos, music, games, images, ...) has become part of what "writing" means on the web. Which means that, as a writer, you need to find out things out there that your writing links to. Which means that the article you're writing becomes a starting point for a wider, broader, more extended reading network.
The Don't Make Me Think crowd is (rightly) concerned with the frequency of links in an article, where they are placed, how they are signaled, how the link text is phrased, where they take the reader. The readings under Style Guides and Web Designers will fill you in on these matters. But their concerns tend to envision the reader as captive, a consumer, and a consumer that can't be too challenged.
What they overlook is //meaning//. How the link related to the target is something the writer has to craft. The //how it is related// isn't simply a matter of //where does the link go? and do we want to be associated with that? and will the reader come back?// How a link is related to target creates a relationship of //meaning//.
Here are a few:
annotation, citation, data to support a claim, claim to support data, alternative perspective, conflicting perspective, older perspective ...
And here are relationships when we start talking rhetoric and persuasion:
metaphor, metonymy, anaphora, contrast, parallel, litotes, paradox ... More here [[http://erhetoric.org/Erhetoric/wikka.php?wakka=BurbulesHandlistOfLinks | Burbules, Handlist]].
How do we talk about this relationship and what we can say about it are the ideas of the second set of readings below, from Theorists and Writers.

Additions:
Links are what web content writing is about. No links - no web. As Lynch points out, web sites are not entities but linked pages:
Web “sites” are complete abstractions—they don’t exist, except in our heads. When we identify a site as such, what we’re really describing is a collection of individual linked pages that share a common graphic and navigational look and feel. [[http://webstyleguide.com/wsg3/9-editorial-style/6-web-links.html Links]]
That's not really accurate: web sites do exist as a collection of data entities, but we can get his drift.
For this project we're not interested in those big navigational links that hold the architecture of the site together but the embedded hypertext links we encounter as part of reading content. Those embedded links that you as a writer create to enmesh your work with the rest of the web:
Two types of links are used in web sites: navigational links that connect pages within a site such as the links in the page header above ("book contents, chapter contents", and the classic “embedded” hypertext links within the content that offer parenthetical material, footnotes, digressions, or parallel themes that the author believes will enrich the main content of the page. Although navigational links can cause problems in site design, more disruptive is the overuse or poor placement of embedded hypertext links.

Here's the project for the next two weeks addressing your work with Price and Bernstein on links and linking. Skim at your own risk!
Compose an encomium or vituperation to links and linking. Draw on Price, Bernstein, and any other reading you need, //as well as on your notes on these readings//. You'll probably use first-person for this, but do not rely entirely on your own impressions. Include them, but do not rely solely on them. Go further afield.
Five minutes reading time or longer.
Use images, heads, sections, lists, and links if and when appropriate.
==== Encomium and Vituperation ====
Before you start your project, //study// the entries on praise and blame at Silva Rhetorica.
[[http://rhetoric.byu.edu/Pedagogy/Progymnasmata/Encomium.htm | Encomium]] and [[http://rhetoric.byu.edu/Pedagogy/Progymnasmata/Vituperation.htm | Vituperation]]
Encomium and vituperation are paired types of speeches:
Vituperation or invective is "a composition expository of attendant evils" and is a companion to the previous exercise, encomium. It also compares to the Commonplace exercise, but differs in speaking against not general vices or types of persons, but a specific individual. As the encomium, the vituperation includes as subjects chiefly persons, but also can take up things (such as abstract ideas), times (as the seasons), places, or animals.
The kind of prose you'll be working with is [[http://rhetoric.byu.edu/Branches%20of%20Oratory/Epideictic.htm | epideictic]]. Traditionally, epideictic prose ceremonial, public, and addresses the current state of affairs rather than a future decision.
**Encomium and vituperation do not reduce to positive and negative aspects.** Do not think in those terms. The encomium expounds on "attendant excellencies" and why the subject should be praised. The vituperation expounds on "attendant evils" and assigns blame.
The essay does not weigh positives and negatives seeking balance or compromise. At the end, it's praise or blame. Work within that frame.
The prose doesn't need to be exclusionary or aggressive or hyperbolic. Both encomium and vituperations can be very moderate and compassionate in tone.
The entries in [[http://rhetoric.byu.edu Sylva Rhetorica]] present some ideas on for composing an encomium or vituperation. The examples a person but you can adapt the ideas to the situation you're writing in.
=== Writing Notes ===
You'll notice that writers on Medium make good use of using headings, that they develop ideas by dividing their text into sections, that they use images as section dividers and headings, as well as part of their argument. Below, I've linked to a few examples I found on Medium to give you a sense of what you can use to develop your encomium or vituperation.
//Make me think// means you need to maintain the complexity of the problem in your work. That's why I'm asking for 5+ minutes reading time. Success in this project depends on how well you muster arguments in praise or in blame of links and linking - how persuasive you are, how you anticipate and address objections and alternative arguments.
There are a lot of topics and angles to consider in links and linking. Price and Bernstein bring up and address many of them. They make good starting points, but take neither as gospel.
