Audio version of Google News

Robonews Robotic! Here you kind find a podcast of google news. I (well cron) pulls the news 4 times a day and feeds it to festival. This gets posted here in the form of mp3 and xml. Just for fun, one version of the news gets fed through a Markov chain Algorithm. This creates random sentences out of the input. The program that I use for this is explained in the excellent book “The Practice of Programming”. Link.
