Codework + Code Poetry: What The...?

It's not often I get to post here about codework [I nearly typed "codwork" instead then, heh]. Way back in the 1990's when this thing called the "World Wide Web" was kicking off [you *may* just have heard of it?] codework and code poetry were virtually unrecognised genres. Back then, Alan Sondheim, Ted Warnell, Talan Memmott, the anarcho 7-11 crew [myself included], and various Eastgate and Electronic Lit types were rampantly gestating this mix of poetically-infused codecraft.
