Digital Poetry

Victor Keegan reminds us that between Twitter poems, locative mobile poetry, and 160 character poems, the digital poetry community is very busy indeed. Keegan himself wrote a poetry generation platform, a Second Life book, and a mobile network of poetry in which each poem is linked to places and objects that inspired it.

Technology and poetry have been walking down divergent paths for many years. Maybe it is time they came together to produce a fresh cultural synergy.

Interestingly, the article does not mention that experimental digital poetry has a long history and indeed a long prehistory .
