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.
Agreed, poetry and programming..who knew?
Hahaha, my stream tends to be one big geekgasm (hope that was not too risque) 🙂
This is very good …
ROBE PART 2
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
kiran kumar : We have another programmer poet in our midst, I see 🙂
Rajini Rao oh noes, its supposed to be a secret 😀
