Haiku Canada 2015 – Haiku and New Technologies

coasts_and_islandsI gave a talk at the Haiku Canada weekend on Sunday May 17 2015 in Victoria, B.C.

The title of my presentation was: Thousand Islands: Publishing Haiku using new technology, from Twitter Haiku to iPad Haiga

 Synopsis:

Come explore a real archipelago of publishing options for the web, social media, and beyond.  This presentation offers an overview of the most innovative haiku projects available on new platforms, such as blogs, Twitter haiku, iPad haiga, video poems, podcasts, guerrilla haiku, art installations, and other experiments in the public space.  Jessica Tremblay will show you the best of the best in this lightning speed presentation which aims to inspire you to try new technology for your own projects. Don’t be stuck in one place when there are so many islands to explore!

As promised, here are the links to the websites I talked about. Have fun exploring these new technologies and finding new ways to share your haiku!

    My social media presence is just a blip in the haiku galaxy. Not every celestial object has to be a titan, though, so here are my URLs: twitter.com/bill312 — serving up Japanese-style micropoetry and micro-commentary since 2009 — and a newer venture, billwatershaiku.wordpress.com. I hope readers will find something to enjoy there! :- )
