Quick comment regarding blogbitch page:
...many Blogs leave me with the impression: did a human being actually write this? To see if people can actually tell the difference, I decided to create my own blog, but one that is NOT written by a human being.
The Internet brings out the voyeur in a lot of people. Thousands, closing in on millions of people are running websites known as Blogs , a stream-of-conscious random logging of mostly less-than-interest accounts of people's lives. Some of these are actually rather well thought out, but many others leave me with the impression: did a human being actually write this?

To see if people can actually tell the difference, I decided to create my own blog, but one that is NOT written by a human being. Well, the component parts are written by people. However, what I did is write a program to grab a bunch of new blog entries on a given day and then, using a concept known as Third Order Markov Chains, mix them all together in a way that more-or-less makes grammatical sense (or at least as much as the original "writers" had), but contentwise becomes completely ludicrous. The result can be viewed on the Blog Bitch site.

Frequent visitors may wonder why the Blog Bitch site is not updated more. The answer is that, sadly, most "random" entries really aren't all that funny. I generally had to generate about 40 or 50 new "entries" to find new material, and I ended UP mixing and matching the best to create new entries. A little too much manual effort for a lazy guy like me, so there ya go.

However, if you really want to see more of these, I have put the Raw Bitch Generator on line for you to play with. Please be warned that this can take up to a full minute to load, as it is manually scanning a large database and generating new content in real time. Please also be warned that the results may not be worth your while, and may not even be in English (Espaņol blogs seem to be popular too). Having said that, knock yourself out!


i feel guilty for not having blogged in a beijing hotel. i really hate it.. goodness...i almost crashed into things (a tree, a pole, a wall) on thursday when i was so peaceful and awesome. someday i wanted to watch the sunrise, meaning that number one has been asking me shit. i'm like in la la land.. but yea rock on.. *burp*
March 13th, 2003:Here's a sample of output from the Raw Bitch Generator, so you can determine whether you really want to waste your time on it:
