The Book I Would Like to Be Written

Hi all,

This is in ref to which book would I like to be written? My idea is for the hypertextualization of a book that already exists - not really an answer to the question being asked but hey...

What I would like to see is Wittgenstein - specifically his "Philosophical Investigations" converted into hypertext. It is a very hypertextual book (and in fact has been the inspiration for some theoretical work by Rand Spiro and associates at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign).

In fact I have some more specific ideas on this - though life as a grad student is too busy, I would be prepared to work on something like this if some other people are interested. May need some programming though: skills that sadly I lack - again maybe not so sadly;)
