MirrorGlass ABOUT


On this weeks This American Life Ira Glass declared his love for the InspiroBot. I've always liked that sort of thing. Semi auto-generated text, found things, cut up and put back together. Stuff that has you wondering: Is this kind of profound or is it just silly? Am I putting the meaning there or did the bot actually do it? And how does this change when the source material used to train the bot is your own words?

MirrorGlass extracts all of Ira Glass's dialogue from 20+ years of This American Life and feeds it to a Markov text generator.
