We were talking about the people or the automated people who comment on our blog posts. Matthew asked whether they constitute a community in themselves. I’m beginning to perceive of them as such now – they seem harmless and I can’t help being a tiny bit cheered when they are so enthusiastic about one of my posts, even though I know they are algorithmically composed. Makes me think how I might find Teacherbot supportive and motivating if it analysed my posts or questions and detected my mood.
