Henso Hat Recht, Aber... Bob's Yer Uncle
Ah shit, oh man, I'm dyin over here! I woke up after sleeping for an entire hour to find avuncular email from Dave Winer ("I was serious. You're lazy Chris.") and Robert Scoble tripping over his dick in a veritable minuet of passive-aggressive fulmination ("Damn, Chris Locke is up late. He already called me names..."), but it was Henso that laid me low. Two minutes later, WBZ Boston called for a surprise interview (amazingly, here's the very guy I spoke to in their new studio) and I had to put a sock in it. I know just enough German that I was busting a gut over the original...
Warum Weblogs keine Tageb�cher sind: Weil sie �ber sich hinausgehen. (Im besten Fall mehrere Kilometer!) Wieder mal gut gelacht bei der Lekt�re von Chris "RageBoy" Lockes Weblog. Der Mann wird seinem Spitznamen gerecht, im Englischen nennt man sowas "take no prisoners attitude". Im �brigen gebe ich ihm Recht wenn er sagt: "That's a lot not to care about."
But as I groped for deeper understanding, it got much better. Babel Fish renders Henso's little joke in a sort of Yoda-esque patois, as follows:
Why Weblogs are not diaries: Because it beyond itself go. (in the best case several kilometers!) Again times well laughed with the reading of Chris "RageBoy" Lockes Web log. The man becomes fair its pointed name, in English calls one sowas "take NO prisoners attitude". In all other respects I give it right if it say: "That's a plumb bob NOT to care about."
Nicht wahr? You bet! Wieder mal gut gelacht indeed bei der shitty translation! Har har, mein Gott im Himmel! What are we to conclude about the state-of-the-art in natural language processing when SYSTRAN fucks up even the English-to-English? This globalization shtick (stück?) is going to be so much fun. Oh yeah.

Chris Locke's photos More of Chris Locke's photos

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
