Google Poem

Google's having a little contest to promote the Google Books site. I let myself get sucked into it, because I'm such an incurable Google fanboy, and ended up spending half an hour penning the following poem as my contest entry.

The contest asks to write something creative about what reading will be like in one hundred years. Yeah... I know. Anyway:

New resolutions
scream trillions of pixels
with contrasts a million to one

Ocular sensors
trace corneal movements
interpreting which apps to run

A Quantum-core palmtop
with subspace transistors
draws holograms right in your hand

You've a high speed connection
with off-world poets
and here you are reading Ayn Rand
