'Second Life' session on Hellicane a big success

On January 28, 2007, Hellicane founder PodPoet gave a presentation on Hellicane and cause-based poetry podcasting in a very unique forum. Here is a picture from the event (PodPoet is the tiny guy on stage in a yellow shirt) and a report from one of those in attendance:

PodPoet Clinquant explains the evolution of his Hellicane website, where people submit poems about the hurricanes of 2005. He explains about caused-based poetry websites and how they help with social expression / action and gives some examples of how we can do it. Hellicane started out with just his poem; then he opened it up to allow others to post poems. Later it was turned into a podcast. It’s become a large community. Submitted by Dedric Mauriac
