Internet Group Poetry

interesting use of a medium

blather is the greatest new media poetry project I've encountered.

Basically, you take a dictionary and throw out the definitions. Then you let everybody define the words themselves. Then make each word in each entry a link to its own dictionary entry. Since the system is unmoderated, what you end up with is a tangle of Dadaist insight.

Of course, I've added my own entry for Philosophistry

And, believe it or not, blather has its own fan community (there's one for everything on the net it seems)
