Because I am on a year or ten long rant about the downsides to machine learning and capitalism, here is something that made me laugh so fucking hard. For several days.
A machine read Harry Potter books, and fantastic people got it to write Harry Potter and the Portrait of what looked like a Large Pile of Ash.
Things like this make me unreasonably happy.
To help explain why I ever bother doing anything ever to a friend (my wording, not theirs) there was cause to see if an old website I "wrote for" was in the Internet Archive, lo, it was! And amongst the things I spat out in 2007 was this. And I mean, come on, it's pretty funny in retrospect. I was worried about the size of MySpace. Do you know MySpace was a thing? I was bothered that idiotic rants online were too easy to post and will be archived forever. And that is now in the internet archive.
I mean, it's not smart and I was never a talented writer but hey, I saw the patterns. But I won't link to it and encourage you not to type in the url, it is not worth the effort.
