A computer algorithm has prompted me to write my first post. At this point, the task of establishing a website appears so daunting that I doubt anyone will ever read this. I might liken it to us blasting the works of Bach into outer space, in hopes that extraterrestrials might hear it someday. (No, I don’t know what “someday” means in the context of outer space).
Fine, impersonal algorithm! Here’s an article! Would you like more? Fine! A, an, the! I hope you’re happy!
Are the odds of anyone ever reading this unfathomably low? Yes! But nonetheless, does this article irrefutably exist? I must again answer yes! Thus, with the tenacious audacity that seems peculiar to humanity, I fling my presence into the gaping maw of the unknown! Fly on, brave article! Carry your vapid message to the ends of the universe! I know that when I am gone, and I stop paying for this domain, you will continue on, stored and cataloged in an obscure Russian database, less than a grain of sand on the beaches of Hawaii, but still, beyond a doubt– in existence.
