Blogs & Sites
I post here semi-regularly with my thoughts, discoveries and publications. My interests mainly revolve around poetry, music, digital arts, politics, and Buddhism.
My blog Markovian Parallax Generate deals with a computer program (mchain) I have used to write poetry. It also documents my early experiments with Gnoetry 0.2 and related ideas/processes in digital poetics. If you would like to download and install Gnoetry 0.2 (not a simple task if you don’t run Ubuntu Linux) you can learn about that there as well.
(UPDATE: See Install the Gnoetry 0.2 on Xubuntu VirtualBox Appliance and How to Install Gnoetry 0.2 from Github in Ubuntu/Xubuntu at Gnoetry Daily for easier installation and use, as well as links to the Gnoetry 0.2 Virtual Appliance Installation Guide and User Manual.) E-mail me directly for additional help (see the Contact page).
The Gnoetry Daily group blog documents and encourages human-computer writing experiments. You may view about 7 years of my work with the Gnoetry 0.2 program (primarily) there.
For a hub to my various blogs and creative web accounts (SoundCloud, Twitter, RedBubble, etc.), as well as info on my freelance editing and formatting services, go to ericgoddardscovel.com.
