I saw where Robin H. joined up.

According to a post over on House Atreides he was going to have some suggestions for this board?

I would like to suggest a tehKJA bot much like Tazbot to post responses occasionally. Also, for Facebook and Twitter comments.

With all of the interviews and twitter posts that thing would be fantastic. There is quite a lot of material from which to draw now. Since he hasn't written anything new or original in years now I would challenge preeks to be able to tell the difference between having a conversation with the bot or the hack.

Yeah, TAZ basically fooked off into virtual obscurity, so there was no impetus to complete TAZbot Mark II.

But this ... this could be fun. :twisted:

Which one should I work on first, KJAbot or TehKJATwatterbot? :P

Or just do both at the same time, a little at a time?! :dance:

Edit:

KJAbot says...

Hi! I’m Kevin J. Anderson and by any measure, I am one of the most popular writers currently working in the science fiction genre.

It LIVES!!! :shock:

(Just a few "boasties" for now. :P )

I'd say go with the twatterbot first, then we can set up a twitter account for his important updates!

altho it's probably only average in comparison
to the wizards who build things on the web,
I'm constantly amazed at the SandChigger's
skill & abilities .... but he's funnier that any
ten net-dorks combined, so bonus ...

SandRiderBot so I don't have to post myself any more ?
................ I exist only to amuse myself ................

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.
