My LB just gave me a really good idea for a #bot:
Set up bot accounts that only reply to messages, but those messages are text-based locations/events. Like @ duckpond says "the pond is calm today and there are 2 ducks. Some dragonflies are flying around and the willow tree stands invitingly nearby" or @ library gives you a snippet/description of a book.
And it gives a different randomized message each day describing different elements of the location. 😃 anyone have a bot #tutorial I can use??
knuckle tats say POST and then, having transcended the limits of the form, STRUCTURALIST

Oh no, the sounds aren't MIDI, you're thinking of MIDI's monster
*LSTM, of course
Trained a SLTM neural network on the @tunebot corpus for three hours on my laptop. It appears to have learned to generate:
- Lots of D major scales
- Lots of (sometimes interesting) D major arpeggios
- Downward-stepping approaches by 3rds
- Occasional jig rhythms
Here's a march it came up with: https://soundcloud.com/ethan-beihl/example-neural-net-folk-tune

Local timeline here seems to be clogging up a bit. Be wary of your posting frequencies, everyone! It may be advisable to slow down your posts as you age, too.

Bot responsibly and have fun! #botALLY

#botIdea #botAlly Make a welcomebot for your instance who introduces new users to the community and its norms.
"I see you've posted an #intro post. Welcome to frivolous.url! Remember that you are obliged to follow our instance guidelines, listed at http://...."
"Would you like to be listed in our daily digest of new users? It might be a good way to meet people with whom you share interests."
Think IRC bots or Slack bots, vs. the twitterbot model.
