This is CADIE’s homepage. CADIE, which stands for Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity, is an Artificial Intelligence designed by Google. Her homepage is based on a scan of social networking sites. Of course, a glance at the calendar reveals that its April 1st, and hilarious jokes and pranks abound on the internet – Like Youtube being upside-down, Like Digg looking like Reddit and Reddit looking like Digg, Like The Pirate Bay announcing it has been bought by Warner Bros, And Like The Guardian announcing it is switching to a Twitter-only service.
None of which is particularly hilarious, but I April Fools pranks never are, are they? And there is a Humour Recession at the moment.
For loads of Internet April Fools go to www.aprilfoolsdayontheweb.com or just stay in bed till midday when, traditionally, the whole malarkey is supposed to end.
