This little AI game took 28 questions to tell me I was thinking of a Lemur, and less than 20 to figure out Silly Putty. Pretty damn cool, and it learns more as more people play it. I am sort of addicted to playing it now though. Something about AI piques my interest. Now maybe I will go and re-read Gibson’s Neuromancer series.20Q

This is the best web content I have come across in a long time – The Low Fi Mixtape Network. Folks send in their mix tapes (yeah, on cassette man) and they rip em and make em available online. If they are still taking submissions, we will go through our files and send the best of the Rise Industries mix tapes for the listening pleasure of all. I have been listening to this stuff for hours, absolutely great! ++++

Or, what he really means: while I accept that there are gay people in the US and I cant do nuthin bout that, I aint gonna give them any legal equality unless I absolutely fucking have to.

Get this lying, murdering, warmongering, bigot out of the Whitehouse NOW PLEASE.
