I’m currently developing a fully-automatic

posted by Jason Kottke   May 24, 2000

I’m currently developing a fully-automatic kottke.org content generation script. Here’s pretty much how it’s going to work:

- cull a couple of the most recent links from Metafilter, /., and Camworld

- throw in a couple links to people that I know (i.e. Bryan had a good point on his site today…and then Brent said…)

- add some exceedingly Obvious[tm] “commentary” about some current Internet or technology issue

- put in a link to Deepleap, Blogger, or Epinions every few days

- links to recently released movies and DVDs, along some generic commentary: “I saw [blank] today [on DVD/at the theatre]. It was pretty [good/bad].”

- choose a current event at random and generate a comment: “I think [current issue] sucks!”

- promise that a new episode of 0sil8 is going to be up soon

- apologize a few days later when said episode isn’t posted

Am I missing anything? I hope to have it up and running in the next couple of weeks, so that I won’t even need to touch this site to keep it running smoothly.
