A thousand fans isn’t hard to achieve; a thousand TRUE fans, however, is different. To what Kevin Kelly defines as a true fan, is almost like a close friend or sibling, someone who cares enough about you that they check the latest news about you, pre-order your works and write blogs about you. So the real question is, can you add 1,000 to the family? If so, how will you stay in contact with them? Obviously as a student, I don’t have 1,000 fans; I mean let’s be realistic here.  Let’s talk fictional and say I do have that many “true” fans right now, how would I manage it? Well first off, I am not the type of person that likes criticism or feedback in personal terms, meaning face to face. In my mind of insanity, I believe those who give a critique to just give a critique or are force to give a critique really don’t give two sh*t’s about your work, unless you know them on a personal level. However, impersonal critiques can be quite different. Why? Let’s say I created a forum on my website and in that forum you can say anything you want. Those who actually take the time and effort to make an account and then post their feelings about your work on your forum, nine times out of ten care about your work and want to see some improvement. (Because who would waste their time if they didn’t care?). The other 1 percent are most likely haters, and most haters hate on people because they are envious of you. So how would I manage those true fans?  Obviously through online forums, blogs and maybe emails…which is a big maybe. I wouldn’t want someone managing my fans just on the simple fact I would be happy to have them. 1,000 true fans? I mean come on.

What is a hypertext?

Isn’t a hypertext just text that links to another website. Like THIS!?
