Computers have no souls. There isn't anything that can be blamed when they go wrong, not that would make the victims of their maliciousness feel any better. Computers are the only medium in which we invest a lot of energy, a lot of emotion and creativity in our art. Whether that be visual, writing, programming, music... at times a lot of people have lost hours -- or days -- of work with no real way to get it back. And computers are the only medium in which this can happen without us being able to blame anyone.

Silicon dream
Captured so brilliantly
Like a butterfly on a board
A blink of an eyelash
Or an agonising five minutes
The image is gone
Lost forever
It could be remade
But never the same
Like waking up
From a silicon dream

My poetry really does suck, but I had to try.
