Identity as Norwegian Pagoda It never was the right time to travel to Rome to find yourself. Autumn fog and rainy wind are symbols of crushed hopes—miasma birthing counterfeiters who clutter the globe with shields of Sistine junk. Praise the miasma. Who wants to be gulled by the hand that [ … ]
As extensive use of mobile devices such as smart phones, wearables and tablets has become the norm, it’s apparent how networked/online communication has become a crucial component of our everyday news and entertainment cycles, as well as a critical social tool. In the resultant infoglut we’ve willingly created [and to which we seem quite content to constantly expose ourselves], privacy concerns are prompting pushbacks against oversharing and the incessant rush of accelerating digital news.

One of the many things I valued at the Buffalo Poetics List was encountering new work, blogs, journals, etc., that I may not have found otherwise. In thinking about this, I’d like to make this new discussion board an larger resource, an aggregator of sorts for other listservs and blogs that share similar aesthetic concerns. [ … ]
