Blogs & Sites
I post on the what light already light blog (at its new home attached to this home site) semi-regularly with my thoughts, discoveries and publications. My interests mainly revolve around poetry, music, digital arts, politics, and Buddhism/non-duality.
For several years, my blog on WordPress.com, which was also originally title what light already light, was renamed to !poi4′:;!poe’!’;;!mbassy::!oip3′:: [Poembassy Bombing]. I think those days are over now, and I’m returning to the original theme, which resonates again with me. I have moved all of the blog content over from the WordPress.com site to this new home on my own website, but you can still visit the old !poi4′:;!poe’!’;;!mbassy::!oip3′:: [Poembassy Bombing]. That twitter feed is priceless.
My blog Markovian Parallax Generate dealt with the first computer program (mchain) I used to write computation/digital poetry. It also documents my early experiments with Gnoetry 0.2 and related ideas/processes in digital poetics.
The Gnoetry Daily group blog documents and encourages human-computer writing experiments. You may view about 7 years of my work with the Gnoetry 0.2 program there. It is now largely defunct.

From the summer of 2007 through the spring of 2008, I was the web editor for the Sycamore Review Weblog.

I am currently an administrator and contributing member (eRoGK7) of the group computer poetry blog Gnoetry Daily.
