“With hypertext, endings are irrelevant — because no one ever gets to one. Reading gives way to surfing, a meandering, peripatetic journey through a maze of threads. The surfer creates his or her own narrative, opting for the most seductive link immediately available” (The End of Patience, David Shenk)
Keep this in mind when writing your report. Perhaps that hyper-link to a useful appendix will not make the text clearer. Maybe it’s just another open door, through which your reader can escape.
