Elke was here

The Elkement has published its first Search Term Poem on its blog on 12-12-12. The first weeks of living as a practicing search term poets were exciting, intense... and heart-wrenching at times.

It designated itself as a leader of new cult, attracted new comrades quickly, and transcended the scope of its art to other items from the virtual scrapyard such as spam comments.

But it was existentially frustrated by discovering - as usual - that it just had been a later adopter, at least with respect to spam poetry. Find an account of those tumultuous days here.

However, in relation to Search Term Poetry the judgment is still out. Today, as per 12-02-14 it still believes it founded search term poetry.

This was the first poem based on terms delivered via Bing web master tools. Titles have been added, but search terms are unmodified - one line corresponds to one search term.

Bing poetry (1): On Web 3.0 – Animals Communicate via Household Appliances (I might re-consider this prosaic title)

anything new in microwave ovens?
just rodents
posts in dark
comment via microwave
the dark side is strong in this one

Bing poetry (2): On Theory and Practice

the word cliche address
theory of trying
i am trying to not get attached to a psychologist
i am interested in combining theory and practice
appropriately

At New Year's Eve the Elkement was rewarded with more great search terms. The following philophical poem was crafted from a mixture of search harvested using WordPress stats, Google and Bing webmaster tools. And after all, this is a tightly managed projects. Following the standard operating procedure we need to tick off search terms every quarter.

poetry by crowdsource
theory and practice are different in real life – poem
