Recently, I started writing poetry. My poems are expressed as domain names — they are my one-line poetry . My chosen medium of art has, according my intelligence reports, apparently worried a lot of people around me, who feared that I must have turned crazy / insane / nuts / all of the above.
What is interesting, however, is that most people don't consider writing poetry crazy. Most also don't consider companies who buy multiple domain names to be crazy. The antonym of crazy is, I suppose, normal. Normal is a relative term, and is the average of the population. There is no absolute state of normality. In fact, Wikipedia suggests that normality "is someone who conforms to the ideals of society and refuses to be individual." 
A lot of people spend hundreds of dollars on fashion as a form of retail therapy. No one thinks that they are crazy. I spend 9.99/year and buy domain names instead — it is far cheaper than other forms of retail therapy, such as designer jeans and t-shirts.
You will probably be a more responsible blogger if we charge you some amount of money for every word you write. Charging people for their posts should also fight the verbal diarrhea by unintelligent spam bots with inadequate artificial intelligence algorithms invading the blogosphere these days.
Blog Post Notes
- One-line poetry. Inspired by Steven Hall's two-word poems when we first met in 1997.

Shortly after I have published this piece, I thought that Zero Emotion would rhyme better. To my dismay, this poem was already published on February 20, 2001 and subsequently purchased by Yahoo! Finance on October 24, 2005.
- Everywhere is Inspiration
Inspired by Equilibrium (Wikipedia), the condition of a system in which competing influences are balanced. I learned about this life-governing state in my Organic Chemistry class in high school.

Inspired by Radical Faeries (Google / SML Flickr / Wikipedia), the most creative + wonderful group of people I have ever met in my life. With them, I felt that I am part of a family again.

Technically speaking this poem was written by Dominic Poon (Google), in his email reply to a recent IconSpam of mine. However, the poem is not completed until the domain name is active, so theoretically speaking, this is a collaboration.
- Sex is the Gay Handshake
Inspired via discourse with André B., who preferred not to be credited directly.

Inspired by my family and my friends.
- Symphonic Electronica

- Synergy of Business
The term synergy was coined by my dad (Google / Google Books / Google Scholar / Google News / jux2) when I discussed with him my frustration of education systems which separate arts (right-brain activity) and science (left-brain activity) into two fields, when I see them as a whole (one-brain activity). Your left and your right work together to make you complete. 1 + 1 = 1
