Death of the Author

What is the death of the author . . . in hypertext? What kind of textual effects would reveal the death?

If it means a text so deliberately multiple (deliberately, because this is not easy to achieve) that no single author or subject-position can be discerned, such a text would be a real achievement, but would be in danger of being read only as an example, and not for itself (whatever that would mean in this con-text).
