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!

If you have a haiku blog, website, twitter account, feel free to share the links with us in the comments section.

Every day, Haiku Andy writes a haiku on an index card, takes a picture, posts it on social media, and mails the card to someone. The pictures are always beautiful and the haiku on the card depicts a moment from Andy’s life.
