One Slight Step Above Your Imaginary Friend

Oliver is a bot that you chat with, just as you would chat with anyone online. This might not be as much fun as entering random UPC codes into Google, but it is pretty clever.

oliverbot asked me if I speak german. ??? Imagine how fun it must be for the creators of that to read the transcripts of these conversations.

Nothing is as much fun as entering random UPCs into Google. Not even the circus, or roller coasters.

Meagan -- it is clever -- you hit some nonsense spells but it still was more coherent than many of the online chats that I have had -- I kept asking persoanl questions about its creator (lover bot), that really freaked it out some

stan -- I added a hyperlink in the text to you UPC post, I should have done that when I wrote it

I have a break between my office work and my rehearsal tonight and I specifically came online to play with oliverbot some more.

Oh dear.
