In the name of Bots: I bought a Furby on Ebay this semester. We have a lot in common, we are both silly, sometimes overwhelming and loud, sometimes cute yet creepy. There are some days were I just took out Furby’s batteries and locked her in a drawer and those may be days that I get jealous of this capability. Strange jealousy of a Furby: Feeling like my batteries are low and want to be locked in a dark room with no responsibilities.

Assigment 3 had myself triggered into a confusing reality upon deciding what kind of “bot” I had to create. What would my Virtual Horse_eBook have to say? In spite of David Hanson’s inspiration by Martine Rothblatt and her studies, I chose to make a twitter bot to Tweet every time a new Furby is being sold on Ebay…


Some vintage, some new and improved Furby’s with photos, links to their listings, and price. I received a bit of feedback from some people who also enjoy these furry friends. I also Twitter Searched the text “I want a Furby” And followed the first 20 tweets that matched the text to see who may be interested.furb2

I do not think that this IFTTT recipe bot is a virtual advancement. I do believe that there should not be any fear in the digital bleed of humanity and robotics as social media is clearly making more and more suitable sources for humans who do not have the ability to create a Robot can still improvise a bot system (with poor coding skills and enough conceptual backup).

This assignment has taught me that I feel more like a bot than a human sometimes, I feel engaged in lessons about why technology is taking over our culture and get confused about why our culture may seem afraid of talking refrigerators. I may type to my personal Twitter as if it is an intimate appliance sometimes. “Her” taught me that I could use an OS system to arrange my lifestyle around a Bot systems options and even emotions.. This made me question if Siri could someday have as an emotional response to my needs as I emote to my twitter followers as well. What determines a Bot and now with what this digital ago is producing, can we all become a Bot if we allow it?

David Hanson decided to create a robot named BINA 48 with a face that moves, eyes that see, ears that hear, and a digital mind that converses with enablers. I wonder if this social robot truly had the ability to compile the memories, feelings, and beliefs needed to converse as a humanoid bust. I wonder how to code a cybernetic companion such as BINA 48 as head and shoulders mounted on a frame. Joaquin Phoenix fell in love with an OS system programmed so supremely programmed to fill his needs. Evidently I wish I could be so stoically programmed to love an appliance that I think I could confess my innermost thoughts to my Technology devices such as social media like a robot. I’m not afraid of technology, and throughout this course I enjoyed the use of social media as a medium and social breaching interactive art object. Humanity is so digitally advanced so why not make use of our lives as an archive.

Social media is a medium and an outlet. I will not fall in love with an OS system but if humanity does not fear the bleed between man and infrastructure, we live in correspondence with the virtual world.

As one final assignment, I coded (HTML) a web space with a Variety of featuring a Text Array project I experimented with during week 11 ( ) , my social media selfie bots/ breaches ( twitter/ duchomp) and of course my Furby enthusiast bot. I aligned these media diary performance pieces with on an interactive site (Tumblr) to further misuse code and web design. I really disregarded the Theme Garden.

I would like to present this alongside my IFTTT generated bot as I see this code more as an ongoing project.
