Forget about blackout poetry, Google enables highlight poetry in your browser!
Kevin Marks literally and figuratively highlighted a bit of interesting found poetry on Google’s Ten things we know to be true article. (Click the link to see the highlight poetry on Google’s page for yourself.)
A screenshot appears below:
Here’s a shortened URL for it that you can share with others: bit.ly/D-ntB-Evil
It’s a creative inverse of blackout poetry where instead of blacking out extraneous words, one can just highlight them instead. This comes courtesy of some new browser based functionality that Google announced earlier this week relating to some of their search and page snippets functionality.
You can find some code and descriptions for how to accomplish this in the WISC Scroll to Text Github repository.
What kind of poetry will you find online this week?
