An Answer to yesterday's musical question...
So what does one call a picture made up of words?
Michael O'Callaghan says he coined the term information-art as a form of art that uses information-rather than paint or bronze - as its primary medium. 1
David Topping has been delving into an aesthetic of information and it's ramifications. He is also trying to define information-art.
While this may be a bit different than a simple bird drawn up in calligraphy...it may be getting to a notion behind that bird, Ted Randall's designs, and appreciation for the information stored in cuneiforms.
Blogging for Newbies Lesson II: Writing Well May Not Come Naturally
OK, I read some of my old posts and noticed spelling errors and a few awkward bits. I guess writing and proofing at midnight, is not the best for my prose.
Now I could go back and re-do them, but that is not in the spirt of this blog. I like Halley Suitts notion of blogging being akin to jazz. I'll go a step further and say that if I goof up a solo, it's done. I may try it again another time, learning from where I went wrong, and hope to do better.
(hmmm...may not be able to resist a little revisionism however...)
I have learned that it is sometimes best to just let the words flow into in a word processor that has spell check, edit it for clarity, then put it in a text editor to add the HTML, and then place it into Radio. (I'm writing this on a Mac.)
Probably should have done that with this post!
