Item description for Love at 1st Byte by Lin Hsin Hsin...
As mankind plunges deeper and deeper into his technological jungle, it sometimes seems we are losing our appreciation of the arts. Networking computers takes precedent over networking friends and computer languages displace our native tongue. In her latest book of poetry, Lin Hsin Hsin seeks to correct the balance. It is poetry for the technological age; it is poetry by the technological age. It is inspired by IT and it should inspire information technologists. Anyone who owns a computer, uses one at work or can remember struggling at school with programmes to improve the latest version of "Space Invaders" or "Wing Commander II" should enjoy reading this collection of 120 poems. The author's wit, knowledge of several languages (computer and phonetic) and her obvious love of the technology makes each poem amusing or provocative and often both at the same time. All aspects of computer technology are tackled, software, hardware and manware; there are comments and jokes which should be appreciated by both the novice and computer professional alike.
