Dylan Thomas it ain't.

Autocomplete poetry

 

Dylan Thomas it ain't.

 

 

A recipe for fame:

  • Step 1: Type a letter into a text input on iOS that has autocomplete enabled.
  • Step 2: Mash the choices in no particular order.
  • Step 3: Add your favorite line breaks and punctuation.
  • Step 4: Receive praise and gobs of money.

I'm sure there's a lesson here about how people will always find unintended uses for any product, both good (life hacks with coathangers) and bad (mangling SaaS APIs for unsupportable use cases). I'll leave that as an exercise to the reader.

Here we go…

T:

The fact I can see it as an excuse for the next few weeks of a sudden…
—it was the best of the day before.
I get a follow back on my way home from work.
