Google Poetics

I am a bit late to discover this, but recently in doing some digging into posthuman poetry, I fell in love with the notion of the Google auto-complete poem. Here is my own personally created favourite:

I stumbled across the blog of Sampsa Nuotio, which he calls Google Poetics (no affiliation with the company). You have to read this site – in my opinion it is one of the simplest and yet best blogs on the internet. What immediately strikes me about this poetry, is that it truly does force us to pause and consider the various emphases that we place on our own artistic creations. Most of these poems, in true posthumanist style, have no author but google’s simple general ai, and the human component (the person who began a search) is arbitrary and in some cases perhaps irrelevant. What do you think? I had a good deal of fun coming up with a whole plethora of these. I might even put together a themed poetry chapbook and try to publish it. Take a look and enjoy:

  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everyone else
    encountering problems with your website. It seems like some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please
    provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Many thanks

  2. Nice post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I am inspired!
    Very helpful info specially the remaining part 🙂 I handle such information a lot.
    I was seeking this particular info for a very long
    time. Thanks and good luck.

  3. Appréciant le travail acharné que vous mettez dans votre site Web et informations détaillées que vous présentez. C’est agréable de tomber sur un blog chaque De temps en temps, ce n’est pas le même site remanié obsolète et dans la capitale de l’adhésion pour affirmer que j’ai vraiment apprécié le compte de vos articles de blog.  live22 .

  4. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of
    plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of
    completely unique content I’ve either written myself or
    outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do
    you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
