Super Bowl vs. Valentine’s Day

Here’s the latest episode in my “Wedded Blisster Series” of animated movie shorts.

Episode #13 looks at the tension between the "guy holiday" of Super Bowl Sunday versus the "gal holiday" of Valentine's Day.   Links to my other recent Wedded Blisster episodes follow the video below.   Here are two other installments of this Wedded … [Read more...]

Cleverbot talks New Year resolutions and Apocalypse

Last year I discovered Cleverbot, which is a web-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) application that supposedly has the ability to learn by conversing with humans via an instant messaging platform.

Celebrating Hanukkah With Cleverbot….

Last year I discovered Cleverbot, which is a web-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) application that supposedly has the ability to learn by conversing with humans via an instant messaging platform. While it’s a stretch to say that Cleverbot is actually intelligent, interacting with this particular "thinking" software can be somewhat entertaining. Here’s the most recent interview I had with this bastion of idiocy last month: Thanksgiving Thoughts With Cleverbot.  Since today marks the … [Read more...]

While it’s a stretch to say that Cleverbot is actually intelligent, interacting with this particular "thinking" software can be mildly entertaining. Here’s the most recent … [Read more...]

Shedding the Facade

Today’s guest post comes courtesy of an online writing friend of mine, Eileen Knowles. According to Eileen, she prefers "The Scenic Route" in life - which also happens to be the name of her fantastic blog.
