  • Shepherds

Web is where we live

TPAC is where we connect

Free Web for the world.

the jury thanks all the participants for their kind words and great creativity

  • Karen Myers

Ohayo, good day

Is how we start at TPAC.

We end, Konbanwa.

  • Marie's:

One two three seasons,

Or four when counting lines

Sapporo leaves.

  • Ode to Scribes


I have been scribing so long

Zakim, close the queue

  • Brian's (Other) Song

I just lacked funds

I could not be at tpac

who will buy me drinks?

  • by Unknown (?)

room without windows

for the Houdini meeting

how do we escape?

  • Autumn

TPAC in Japan,

Gloriously resplendent,

I have to go home.

  • A drink at TPAC

No, I'm not drinking.

Oh go on, just a quick one,

It is 3am.

  • Glazou's sapporo song

Raw fish for dinner

Rough consensus every day

Raw-rough says the Akita

  • Where am I?

TPAC: five long days

jet lag, meetings, in a daze

Sapporo? Amaze!

  • Obviously :

Virginia said it

TPAC is real poetry

Coming in Japan

  • who are we?

zakim, who is here?

sleep with memes, too early wake

villagers? silence.

  • Winter in Sapporo

waiting for snow in Sapporo

but the exciting TPAC made hot and hot

after TPAC winter will come

  • a Chinese poet---judy zhu

有的人一直在说(you de ren yi zhi zai shuo);

有的人想说不敢说(you de ren xiang shuo bu gan shuo);

Sigh…有的说了也白说。。(you de shuo le ye bai shuo)

[translation of my Chinese poem on TPAC]

somebody keeps talking;

somebody wants to talk but keeps silent;

sigh....somebody talked but nobody

  • Until we meet again (Maria)

snow, sun, rain, and shine

Sapporo TPAC is here,

til we meet next year...

  • Unsolved problem (D. Ezell)

is “JOSE” the way?

the argument is over,

the queue is empty.

  • Full moon

Doug, a simple villager,

when the moon is full,

smells of blood, bones and beard.

  • TAGtivism

Stalking working groups

“We're the TAG we're here to help”

Words that bring much fear

  • Poem (anon)

Anonymous I,

Impossible on the web.

I am not a dog.

  • Gotta' love 'em (AnnB)

Making standards ... aargh

Geeks are exasperating

/ often lovable.

  • Accessibility


Oh Accessibility

We plan to aid thee

  • More fun than ISO (AnnB)

New standard measures:

A timbl, a chaals, werewolves ...

TPAC makes me smile.

  • Dystopian international standards life

Autumn mountain view.

Stuffy, ill-lit meeting room.

Yes I saw nothing.

  • This is for all

Medium for the few?

All should be allowed to post.

Yet, all bets are off.

  • Speak up?

Who is at the mic?

Still the usual suspects?

Where are new voices?

  • Missing

I could not be there

And I miss you very much

See you all next year

  • By Paul B

TPAC assumption

Gathering of standards leads

But poets prevail

  • By Gary G

I love the Haiku!

A very nice way to end things :-)

Sent from my iPhone

  • Last day

So many kind chats

hug, joke, love, beer and spec

think about next one !

  • Chaals poetry

Fun for the meeting

helps us work together well

let's write some haiku

  • David's poetry (an answer to chaals one ? :)

often at the mike

wants brevity at TPAC

motion: use haiku

  • A last one

the haiku challenge

becomes a subliminal

form of subversion

About Haiku

Structured usually as a 5/7/5 syllables little poetry, with 3 phrases, it should express here all the good vibrations you get from TPAC2015
