You may have noticed that I changed the tagline at the top of my blog to the rather cryptic phrase “Rumour. Open your ears; “. You may be asking what that’s all about…
I was looking through that recent post about monkeys and typewriters and discovered that there actually have been experiments where they have done exactly that … set a bunch of simulated chimpanzees loose on a simulated typewriters to see what happens. Interestingly, so far they have not managed to recreate the entire works of William Shakespeare.
However, apparenty the 24 character string of “Rumour. Open your ears; ” is so far the longest coherent phrase typed by a sim chimp randomly pressing keys on a typewriter. I don’t know why I thought that was so funny, but I did.
And it seemed a perfect tagline for a blog.
