Haiku0002

29 June, 2007

Recently, somehow, haikus and tech-geekery got linked in my brain. I think it happened when some piece of press pointed out the fact that the maximum allowed length of a Twitter update (140 characters) it just about exactly right for most haikus.

Since then, said brain seems intent on summarizing certain technical thoughts in haiku form. So, since I've got 'em, I decided to start posting 'em to my tumblog. And I was proud enough of one that I thought it was worth reproducing here. It's called Haiku0002:

All the names of things
melt away like late spring snow.
Tagging will save us.
