Bot Blogging

See also: IRC | Weblog

Writing in a Weblog (Blog) in a live chat channel, using IRC, with as many users as the IRC server can stand up to. In fact, there’s no reason to call it a blog, and there’s no reason to focus on the blog as the principal reason for collaborating. It’s IRC. Have fun. Loosen up, man.

Why constrict your blogging to the staid world of GUI interfaces, structured dialogue and recognisable forms of grammar? We haven’t got time for that. Live a little .. today’s newspaper is tomorrow’s fish-wrap after all.

So far we know of two bots who blog, The Daily Chump and The Daily Churn’s bot. #infoanarchy members on are working on some enhancements beyond the capabilities of these two, see Xena.

Also, DiaWebLog is a bot that sits on an IRC channel and builds a weblog based on links it sees in the channel.
