A.L.I.C.E. has a friend named E.L.V.I.S.

Apparently even chatterbots know Elvis. During thisconversation between copies of the same bot, they argue mindlessly, mention Elvis... and then the conversation goes downhill from there. (One thing's for sure; they're not going to pass any Turing tests.)

Harry Potter vs. Tanya Grotter

Tanya Grotter book coverThey're as wild about Harry as we are, but a new Harry Potter impostor has burst onto the scene in Russia: Tanya Grotter "an 11-year-old girl who rides a magical double bass instead of a broomstick, is an orphan, wears glasses and has an unusual mark on her face - a mole on her nose."

Send Your Name to Mars

In 2003, twin Mars Rovers will be launched towards the Red Planet to study the climate and water history of Mars. NASA has issued an invitation to the public to send your name to Mars on the next Mars Exploration Rover-2003 mission. All the names collected will be recorded onto a small DVD disk that will be attached to the lander that will travel to the surface of Mars. Each rover will photograph and return to Earth a picture of each DVD disk of names as they rest on the Martian surface. Hurry; they'll stop taking names on November 15, 2002, midnight EST. Hopefully, this will end better than the last time.

The Bomb Project

"The Bomb Project is a comprehensive on-line compendium of nuclear-related links, imagery and documentation. It is intended specifically as a resource for artists, and encourages those working in all media, from net.art, film and video, eco-intervention and site-specific installation to more traditional forms of agitprop, to use this site to search for raw material. The Bomb Project has gathered together links to nuclear image archives (still and moving), historical documents, current news, NGOs and activist organizations as well as government labs and arms treaties. It makes accessible the declassified files and graphic documentation produced by the nuclear industry itself, providing a context for comparative study, analysis and creativity."

Red Planet Rising

The orbit of Mars is bringing the Red Planet closer to Earth; by August 27 of 2003, it will be 191 million miles closer then it is now, and will appear six times larger and 85 times brighter. It will be the closest that Mars has come to our planet in about 73,000 years, making it "the best viewing opportunity since Neanderthals looked skyward".
