    Looks like the writing profession will become obsolete pretty soon:)

    Entertaining myself with some web design doodling,
    I've written a Java program to generate a random background bitmap image
    for a web page. Hey, pressing a button beats drawing, AFAIC.

    Then I googled to see how many other fools around the globe have
    already solved the same technological problem. (I know, I know...)

    The very top result of the search was the following:

    Being lazy thinkers - we let computers design the base of our characters for role-playing games.
    In other words, original thinking is being pushed out of business by formulaic writing. Already happening in the writing industry.

    OHOHOHOHO DID I SAY THAT OUT LOUD?

    It's a tool and a starting off-point for Dungeons and Dragons, an idea machine. It's not going to out do the writing industry as it is right now.

    + it relies on data being already present, which it cannot create by itself.
