"Hsin Hsin's poetry takes the language of the designers of cyberspace as the starting point for imagining. She does this in ways that I find provocative, amusing, and true. She helps the builders of cyberspace see what they are creating, and by seeing, they change what they are creating.
Hsin Hsin chooses as her base poetic language the vocabulary of cyberspace. Her basis of her evocative work is the technical vocabulary engineers design not to be evocative. She takes the language of dry precision as an instrument of suggestion. She transforms the careful words to create intricate mechanisms of networks and computers into carefree explorers. She breaks down the walls that separate technical vocabularies. She plays with words that take themselves seriously.
Engineers can learn from poets to be better engineers. Hsin Hsin's poetry helps us as poets help us: she helps us converse with ourselves. She gives us startling juxtaposition, unexpected contrast, and new usage, all in the new language of our vibrant cybercafe.
This book is an exciting merger of engineering and poetic creation."
