Work vs text


 Two attitudes to a post.  The classical approach sees it as a 'work'; an objective, fixed entity, property of the author, with a single interpretation.  By contrast the 'post' is multiple in meaning, references to other posts, no longer owned by an author but open to the reader's interpretation.

 The distinction seems to be about attitudes to reading rather than types of text. Thus we have the strategie of the writer to the reader.
