Description: Distributed Narratives presents its contents in the form of a citegraph, which emphasises the relations to its wider intellectual context. Throughout the text, nodes and links are used to point at connections with other documents that are directly cited or otherwise referred to from that page. In doing so, this particular visualization emphasises the discursive knowledge building network in a way that is relevant to professional communities. Furthermore, the cover graphic shows the influence of each page as a node in this discursive network, measured by the number of linkages to other nodes.
