Just a quick note about my latest twitterbot. I was watching The Middleman and found that the longer I watched the more I started sounding like the Middleman. To preserve the good will and sanity of   my friends I've decided to externalise my quote making by creating @fakemiddleman a twitterbot that every couple of hours will regurgitate a piece of the Middleman's genius.

I won't bother posting the code since it's just a simplified version of @talklikewarren which I discuss the design and provide the code for here. The data source is just a flat text file of quotes grabbed from Wikiquote and some episode transcripts I found on the web.

I'll try and make my next twitterbot more useful or have some other clever characteristic that makes it more worth a blog post. In other news I have about 4 or 5 blog posts worth of material in my notes and they'll be up as soon as I sit down and start writing.
