Dave is the founder of Moving Poems, and posts videos for his own poems (along with lots of other stuff) at Via Negativa. Here's a bio.


  1. I have been away so long, I can’t figure out how to start a new post thread.
    I have a question… now that I am finished with school and writing again – I have realized that the ipad has really become popular and it doesn’t run on flash. I had been working in flash. What software is everyone using nowadays to do animation?

    • You’d have to log in first — then you can start a new thread. (If you’ve lost your password I can create a new one for you.)

      I don’t know what people use to create software — Adobe After Effects, maybe? — but HTML5 is what’s used to display videos in Flash-hostile environments, so any upload to YouTube, and any Vimeo upload by someone with a pro account, should be visible. (I’ve been messing around with the design of the main site, trying to switch to a theme that will show the videos in smaller sizes on tablets and mobile phones, but those kinds of themes are almost beyond my ability to tweak. Still, this is increasingly something web publishers have think about.)
