Big MoBot Project

Surely some enterprising softare engineer can combine the technology powering The Prior-Art-O-Matic with the insights captured by The Immutable Laws of Maureen Dowd to create software which, when fed daily wireservice reports, produces a perfectly acceptable Maureen Dowd column simulacrum - along the lines of a Chomskybot for the next generation.

The "Big MoBot!"

It is important to understand that at this point creating the Big MoBot is an engineering problem, not a problem in science.

That's the same understanding that gave the Manhattan Project its edge over the German atomic bomb effort. Thank God for that.
