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.

I’m starting a Techno Tuesday column in which I will share things I’ve found on the web and social media as a proof that haiku has really arrived to the 21st century.

Here are some of my favorite tweets from Dec. 22-Dec 29 2014 by haiku poets Carlos Colon, Johnny Baranski, Johannes S. H. Bjerg and more!

Enjoy!

PS This is my first time attempting to embed Twitter in a blog post, so I apologize in advanced if the posts don’t show up correctly (especially for those of you who receive my posts by e-mail). If the Twitter posts are well formatted, you should see the poet’s photograph next to the post. (Works in Firefox, but not in Chrome)
