Blogging with bots

Check out the Brutalist aesthetic(!)

Just pushed online dystopia.report, which is aimed at achieving a couple of things: I wanted to mess about a little with the Hugo flat site builder and Github pages, and also create a sort of spoof sci-fi project which is actually neither very much sci or fi, but just some creative output on the the trash fire humanity is backing itself into. Lastly, I wanted to see how much I could lazy write posts with the help of different generators, bots, machine learning or AI things, which itself creates a kind of dark timeline effect.

As much as possible, I’ll commission the bots do the heavy lifting on it and describe the fermenting doom as they see it, and maybe just do a bit of prodding and editing around the edges, or add present day artefacts that should be stuffed into a time capsule for future civilisations to at least understand we were self aware of our looming decline.

Some notes and clippings on the present decline

Just dumping a few salient points here on the resurgent populism hard push for a disastrous economic and social experiment in the UK known as “Brexit”. I managed to be in Europe when the last Exit from the EU was planned, on 29th of March. Now that it’s been moved to Halloween, I’ve again managed to find reason to be in an EU country on the day. If/when the UK does actually find itself out in the cold, I just want to be in the EU on the day.

Brexit is a coup.
