here's a recording of big ol' lecture I wrote & delivered for BMOLab and Vector Institute last month, entitled "Language Models and Poetics," in which I claim that computers not only *can* generate poetry, but in fact they can *only* generate poetry.
the discussion touches on GPT-n (of course), speech act theory, William Carlos Williams' _Spring and All_, Frank Lantz (twice), and more 🎶

We have a few people interested in taking up radtown's server... to be clear: I don't plan on shutting anything down until the end of the year, even if no one takes over.
The answer is I had surgery then COVID happened and I haven't been able to get my hair fixed in a year.
There's no timeline on this, I'd say probably by the end of the year unless someone wants to take over.
@_ Nah. I won't shut it down all of a sudden, but if nobody wants to take over, it'll probably let it slowly shut down.
I dunno when but I don't really have the energy to keep things going. Or if someone wants to take over, that could happen, too.
Also this is the perfect way to do a remake, for like, a lot of games.
