This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another. It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity. It might relate to science large or small. It might be art for art’s sake. Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries. So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old. So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways. Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of. So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.

Microsoft’s bot takes Turing test; fails miserably.
I’m guessing that the bot was an expansion of the old computer psych programs that would essentially feed what was said to them back as a response. As people quickly proved, that doesn’t work very well if you screw around with it. Leading to the ridiculous tweets and a failed Turing test.
