Robot writing

27 Feb

I have been writing a bit recently about automation in the manufacturing sector. This will, in fact, take many jobs away, including the ones in China.
But I got to thinking if writing was also in danger of going the automated route. There used to be a plugin for Quark Express called Jabberwocky that allowed you to generate dummy text when laying out a page. It was fun. You supplied the nouns and verbs and the thing would do its magic with hillarious results. I will have to reactivate my ancient Mac that still should have this software and run it.
But for now – we’ll just stick to manual writing.
