The Stupid Filter as the New Zeitgeist

Posted November 13th, 2007 by

So Slashdot already covered it, so there’s not much that I can add to the thousands of monkeys banging away at keyboards trying to produce the combined works of Shakespeare, but check out the StupidFilter. Meh, it’s good but it will probably about as effective as spam filtering.

However, the true beauty of StupidFilter is that they’ve seeded it with a corpus of bad YouTube comments and there is a page to view a random comment without any context. This is the true kernel of goodness in the project. It’s like modern performance art of the Interwebblagosphere, starring you and your misspellings, trolling, and flamebaiting. Best part is, the page title is “Concentrated Stupid”. =)
