"Perhaps more than any theory any discourse I most wonder about the real life dynamics of how poets on this list who either have children or are in everyday contact with children breath their own poetic sensibilities onward thru their children. & by drift & by deriv� maybe posters could tag the nonadult headcount in their households.

"What I do for variable spacing, & this is a hack if I ever heard of one,

One of the most curious things about White's 1973 post is when it's talking about what happens when hosts on the ARPANET change their name/mnemonic. It is eerily similar to discussion on the fediverse about account migration and/or instance migration!

"It seems to me necessary that a host have the option of changing its host name. [...] I think I understand some of the unpleasant implications [...] but it seems necessary nonetheless."

I just discovered randomly that there is someone who shares my first name (Zon, which is for Liaizon) who worked with Bob Moog and also released an album the year I was born, and then later released some work with a person who also released a bunch of music by my parents
