Fritz Warfield sent me this link.
It consists of 1032 monkeys typing away on typewriters to see who can do the best job of replicating Shakespeare. It seems that if you log on, you can contribute some monkeys to the project, but make sure to bring some (virtual) bananas.
The best any monkey has done so far is the first 22 letters of Cymbeline. The best any of my monkeys have done is the first 20 letters of Pericles. (My monkeys have better taste in plays than the average.) This might seem disappointing returns, but what the hosts of the site don’t say is that the monkeys have already managed to replicate two of my blog posts, and are well on their way to a third.
