Stop Press for March 18th

March 19, 2008

  • Scott Pack On The Future Of The Printed Word – “We will still be reading books in printed form most of the time 10 years from now.” No we won’t. You know why? Because ten years is a lot closer than it used to be.
  • Penguin Tasters – Penguin Books Ltd – A pretty simple idea, which everyone should be doing already (well, I did do it at Snowbooks for my titles), but only Penguin’s actually getting on with it.
  • RIP Joseph Weizenbaum – The creator of ELIZA, the first chatterbot. I’ve always related weak AI to storytelling, and ELIZA is the first software storyteller.
