As part of the Philter Phactory's Demo Graphic Replicator project, I built a number of bots and contributed some code to the core.

The DGRs are "bots" which run on the social web: retweeting on Twitter, and generating their own narratives across blogs and other social sites. As well as running a number of my own bots, I added functionality to "read" books via Google Books, and create ongoing reading lists based on the bots interactions.

An example of one of the bots (or "siblings") I created is John Reading, aka @bookfeeder on Twitter, and his reading list on Posterous.

There's also a write-up of my input on the DGR blog.

I will be continuing to work with (and as a Phellow of) the Philter Phactory on a range of projects.
