Why e.e. cummings Would Have
Hated Microsoft's Word Program

I got a kick out of this, from the Cleveland Poetics blog. Perhaps you will too.

I've been working with Word for so many years now that I don't even notice its little quirks. I write virtually all my poetry straight onto the laptop these days and I just tidy up the formatting at the end. I installed Open Office on my office PC just to try it out but Word really has become my default. I actually wrote a poem on a bit of paper a few nights ago. It's such a rarity I scanned the page and I'm thinking of blogging about it.

I'm with you, Jim. After you use a particular program for a number of years, you almost begin to think in Word. I'm quite sure Mac people would say the same. The program's little kinks have a way of becoming our own.
