»Mein tägliches Textgebet«. Heuristiken täglicher Texte im Netz




This essay analyses two sorts of texts published daily on the World-Wide Web: more traditional forms of Internet literature such as hypertext and collaborative writing - and the recently developed genre of weblogs, i.e. diaries or open source journalism on the net. Starting with a brief historical and typological survey of those two forms, a new method of reconstructing the individual heuristic of an author is introduced, referring to Eugene T. Gendlins psychological-phenomenological theory of a bodily felt sense. Finally, this new research method in the field of cultural studies is applied to two examples of daily texts: the first German weblog and the German collaborative literary writing project
