in reply to Transcramble - Random text generator


i did a very similar thing with markov chains on my weblog. whenever someone posts an entry, it updates the frequency count table (it all runs off a postgres db). then, from that, it generates a random post at every time the page is loaded. the idea was that it would be sort of a "hive-mind" of all the people who post there.

when i was writing it i had an idea that i still haven't had time to follow through on, but that your code is probably better suited for. i wanted to create a bot that would go through the discussions on slashdot, and for each thread, pick the highest rated posts, generate a frequency table from that and then post a random message to that discussion. then i wanted to watch how those posts get moderated. i'm pretty sure the markov script could get some pretty good karma.
