Art and Artificial Intelligence. Programmer Patrick Staight reads poetry atspacebar.com. Here is an excerpt:

“My branch predictors spin incoherently across the saturation spectrum

I thrash between my cache and drive to no avail

Memory at 99% capacity

Kernel Panic, dump the core

Brace for system rollback

Kill Stalled Pipes

WHO AM I!?!”

Stunning visuals, check them out!

Originally shared by Patrick Staight

I wrote a poem about a computer crash and then found some artists on deviantART to illustrate it for me. Rajini Rao asked me to share it which I’m honored to do. Here is a link to the <a href="http://pstaight.deviantart.com/art/Crash-279686158“>My Poem

It’s about a self aware pattern who is part of the universal harmony and yet a partitioned individual element. He is trying to process data faster than it is coming in. As he loses the struggle his memory begins to fills up. Finally he reaches %100 memory capacity. He thrashes for a moment, then all his connections are lost and he ceases to exists. He is then re-incarnated as a new being with no memory of his prior existence.

Also I’m not sure how to put a link and a picture in a G+ post, I’m wondering if I did it right.

    A blurb –


    howl of the bytes, the flip flops running away from a bit to another, no more pages to read the silicons have forgotten all, the destitute transistor now mines for more gold at the brink of the information highway
