Headline Haiku: The i-‘s Have It
This recently ubiquitous ad with it’s equally ubiquitous i-product was fertile ground to explore the desirability to consumers of i-products in general…not a u-phone or u-thinking, or even a wii-pad or wii-shares. Once again, what we buy is only a reflection of who we are.

Researcher: Mistake, Message,
Illustrated Poetry recently had a post on computer-generated surrealist poetry (https://wordpress.com/read/post/id/67692698/832/). I took headline words from the front section of the NY Times where the ad appeared and plugged them into Poem Generator’s given structure: amazing. I got lots of great lines. I liked particularly the one above.
You can also create your own structure, so I took a classic haiku from Basho to see what would happen with that. Poem Generator must have been channeling Congress! Or at least Fox News.
