I Roblog

I am currently looking at different blogging options. Apparently its not sufficient to pour out your soul, be amusing or simply informative - you need to have a n RSS feed, and Technorati pings and tags!

This is slightly more complicated because we are also planning the big move from Joomla 1.0 to Joomla 1.5, but this might take a while to complete depending on other work. So I have to consider quick and easy options that I can implement now over better solutions that we may need to wait for. 

Of course what I am really looking for is a tool that will write my blog for me so I can get on with my other work. You would think that the AI boffins would have come up with that by now - it must be so much easier than theTuring Test! So here are my requirements:

  1. Accept a list of key words and phrases that must be used with a set frequency within blog entries over a specific time period.
  2. Allow parameters for how often you wish a new entry to be written, how long the the average entry should be and introduce the correct noise factors to make it look like it is actually a busy (yet fascinating) person writing the blog.
  3. By crawling the standard zeitgeist sites - (is that an oxymoron?) - update the list of key words and phrases to keep this blog at the bleeding edge.
  4. Finally, remember to subscribe the "author", so they can keep up-to-date with "themself".

 Maybe I'm being cynical, but it doesn't sound that hard! Maybe we should develop it ourselves and call it Web 3.0.
