Whale Ebooks

10 Mar 2012

I made a horse_ebooks-ripoff bot as a joke for my friend, who is taking a Moby Dick course this semester (Yea, an entire course dedicated to this one book...that surprised me).

It's a short little thing that navigates to a random place in the text ocean that is Moby Dick, snags the entire next line, chops off what it thinks is a sentence, and tweets it. Sometimes mildly amusing, most of the time just trash. I think it'd be funnier if I chopped up the lines even more...but as a bot that took less than ten minutes, I'm happy.

I swear, horse_ebooks has to have someone behind it. It's consistently too funny.

Anyways, thar she blows.
