hi, this is the announcement for a new streaming net audio project that
peter traub and i have been working on:

Netsong is the song of the web, as performed by a web search engine
robot - the latest in self-replicating net technology. Tune in live
to the Voice of the Web!

When provided a searchterm, the netsong bot will search for this term
in a search engine, then choose a page from the search results and begin
following links from that page. It will continue to follow links from the
resulting pages indefinitely, backing up and rerouting if it hits a dead end.
Happily gathering text from each page it visits, the netsong bot
savors the unique lyricality and poignant narrative of the web and begins to
sing it. Not content to merely surf the information
superhighway, the netsong bot makes it music.

Netsong: Pure Net.radio - 100% Native-net programming.

Netsong is by Amy Alexander (plagiarist.org, Multi-Cultural Recycler)
and Peter Traub (fictive.org, Bits & Pieces)
