Gonzalo Frasca -
Aarseth complements the concept of cybertext with
the one of “ergodics”. Instead of using the vague,
but in vogue, term “interactive”, Aarseth prefers to
describe these texts as ergodic literature, defined
as texts where “nontrivial effort is required to allow
the reader to traverse the text” (Aarseth, 1997). By
nontrivial, he means active participations -like
clicking or typing- rather than the traditional actions
associated with reading - like turning pages-, which
does not modify the shape of the text itself.
