Computer poet

I wrote some haiku,
thinking poetry was art
I was mistaken

Another blogger managed to coax haiku out of the computer. It of course takes a lot of attempts to find a good piece, however I have no doubt that the code, along with a team of human judges would produce more content than I, without being much lower quality.

There is a part of me that resists when someone automates a craft — I am afraid that some of the art will be lost, but as things develop, I learn that it frees the artist. In this case, I learn that I get a laugh.
