I am probably not going to be online for a while as I am writing something up about taxonomies. I woke today with the Bee Gees in my head: I must be going crazy! "It's only words ... " Time to go to Rio. (If you are curious about taxonomies , they are very useful things for organising unstructured information, which fills 85% of any organisation and yes someone has done one for poetry but I lost the link. I sometimes wonder why I like writing HTML code; I think there has to be a cerebral link or synapse that overlaps code and poem, or maybe there is a topicmap patina in the brain ... Or am I just an instance of something. Perhaps I need to be reformatted. Suddenly the web is new again: The Semantic Web is coming!
Does Australia Need an ICAC for Poetry? David Musgrave's article in Southerly is not new, but it's worth reading if you missed it....
