You can buy a cop of the zine on my webstore.
The title of my presentation was: Thousand Islands: Publishing Haiku using new technology, from Twitter Haiku to iPad Haiga
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!
If you have a haiku blog, website, twitter account, feel free to share the links with us in the comments section.

The fly is one of the many new characters from the Old Pond Comics series I was able to developed thanks to a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts.
In this behind-the-scene video, I show how I put my zines together.
The zine will be available soon on the Old Pond Comics online store: http://bit.ly/1CMjddW
My voice is raw from recording Kaeru’s voice for my haiku live video, but the frog finally speaks!
The animation film tells the story of how Kaeru became the Haiku Apprentice. It will be launched on the Haiku Foundation website on April 17 2015 (National Haiku Day!).
Meanwhile, enjoy this “making of “video from Old Pond Comics.
I made this short animation from Old Pond Comics for the National Haiku Writing Month. The prompt for February 2 2015 was: noisily.
I really like this Haiku Video found on Vimeo that was done for a video production class. It uses a modern-style of film-making to illustrate a traditional haiku by Shiki. I like that the spider is not seen but suggested. It looks great (except for maybe the close-up of the fly).
It’s a fact that “dew” does happen and you just gotta live with it. (Old Pond Comics)

The screenplay for the movie ”Alien” is famous in the movie business for its short lines that read like haiku… or scfifaiku (science-fiction haiku). I borrowed the screenplay once from Praxis Centre for Screenwriters. Here are extracts:
by Walter Hill
and David Giler
Based on screenplay
Dan O’Bannon and Ronad Shusette
