As we’ve already touched on here, there are a great many tools for creating lovely digital works. Daniel C. Howe has created such a tool. I plan to spend my Australian summer diving into this and making something, anything. I encourage others to play as well. Jason
From the site: - RiTa† is an easy-to-use natural language library that provides simple tools for experimenting with generative literature. The philosophy behind the API is to be as simple and intuitive as possible, while still providing adequate flexibility for more advanced users. The download comes in two flavors: 1) the ‘core’ package, containing the jar files and documentation, and (2) the ‘TTS’ package that adds text-to-speech support. Additionally, statistical models for tagging, chunking, and parsing are available for more advanced users (see ‘Stat-Models’). RiTa optionally integrates with Processing and is both free and open-source. -
Oh and I’ve listed this in the Tools Tech resources page. Please send me other bits to add as well.
