Machine of Death Remix Corpus!

Machine of Death is fantastic. And it turns out that most of the stories in Machine of Death allow derivative works...

And when I hear "derivative works", I think the word "remix". But what's a remix of a text? Cut-up poetry? n-gram models to generate ominous-sounding emails to your family? Counting how many times the word "of" appears? The original text, but with randomized capitalization? This is for you to decide. Well, it is now. Here's all the derivs-allowed stories, conveniently pulled out and converted to ASCII.

Machine of Death Remix Corpus.

Use this to train your poetry bot, or your story understanding system, or your unexpected other thing! Share and enjoy :)

I wonder if there's a way to link comments between Blogspot and Google Buzz...

Anyway: there are some pretty interesting comments over on Buzz.

Fred: now you have to do something amazing with it!

I'm expecting a system that produces good rap lyrics by next week.
