How very male of you

(A kilo of CHOKLIT to whomever can identify taht quote! Hint: it's from a TV series.)

According to this analysis, my LJ writing style is 69% male ATM.

My journal says I'm 69% masculine.
What does your LJ writing style say about your gender?
LJ Gender Tool by hutta


A couple of the students in my AI course wrote proposals to do projects on related topics:


  • Mood recognition from text (I encouraged them to focus on dialogue acts)

  • Conversational agents



Has anyone reading this seen the Loebner Prize page before?
Stuart Shieber was very critical of it in this 1994 article, as did Marvin Minsky in this 1995 comp.ai thread, leading to rebuttals from Hugh Loebner, the prize sponsor, in this article and in his reply in the comp.ai thread. Personally, I think the prize itself is neither good nor bad for AI; popular draw has its place, though following up is another matter. I don't think it does all that much to build the foundations nor further the scientific study of intelligent conversational agents, but that isn't what it's there for, anyway. Oh, wlel.

Edit: vretallin homed in on the above Wade Welles quote from Sliders with frightening efficiency. Well, I will honor my pwomise of CHOKLIT, but as movie-Arwen said: if you want it...

Only the best quote to ever come out of sliders uttered by Wade. Double Cross Ep. Ok now I am afraid that I knew that.

Fellow Sliders fan!
/me teunces enthusiastically
(Do you ever think Gimli worries that he's going to miss the slide?
Nobuddy tosses a-- er, hrm.)

Sabrina Lloyd was gret in Sprots Nught and she's been pretty good in Ed, too (it's her character that's been a bit ill-fated, much as Wade was).

You mean the eViol Arturo ended up going native in Middle-earth?! :-D
I know I would...

And Sprots Nught died an early deeath, as a friend of mine observed - another victim of low ratings. Robert Guillaume was brilliant in that as lawaz. Didja ever see the ep with the South African runner?

Hrmm now there's a an interesting slide to remain in. ;) middle earth from earth prime.

Hmm yeah a great many shows do tend to die an early death. I vaguely recall that ep...all the records were broken if I recall.

The timer in my basement is set to auto-search for the slide coordinates and should find them any day now. :-) Any suggestions on what I should pack? (Who knew that 5th-grade "end of the world" exercise would come in so handy?)

Indead. I especially liked the way Casey called his ex-wife to ask her to turn on the TV for their son. Hey, the season premiere of Ed was pteery goond tonught. I haven't watched the West Wing premiere, but I did tape it. I liked Lah and Odor the one time I watched it, but I can't take that much TV in one sitting. Reading, no problem - even movie marathons - but 3+ hours of television makes me feel like a complete vegetable.

LOL...yeah I admit I was frightened by that as well, but it was well done dialogue in that instance. I normally don't recognize quotes. You are lucky in the pwomise of chocolate since I don't like chocolate. However, we are working on our schedules and when a good time to come out would be. In part I need to know if I got that new position or not as well. If so we will come out when I am between positions most likely. :-)

Grats on the job again.

Wow, Cerner!
I met the head of computer security at the time, going back to Champaign, IL from my interview at K-State in Manhattan, KS in early March, 1999. 'Twas a simpler time.

The current head or the one that was head of security in 1999?

Indeed it was aa much simpler time in 99, but we're going to look back on things in 03 five years from now and say the same thing. ::chuckles::

The one who was head then.
I'll look up his business card and e-mail you his name to see whether it's the same person.

Well, yes, of course - that's always the way of the IT world, nesupasu?

I'm still wrestling with USB and FireWire, SDRAM and CompactFlash... plus RCA cables and a trasking ton of batteries and webcams, scanners, etc. Oh, and dknot get me started on drivers... hurgh. Who gnu video and image acquisition technology could be so complicated?
