Ananova goes live

Ananova goes live. And she sounds and acts like she’s high.

I think the concept of having a computer-generated newscaster is neat, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. I can only seem to get her to read the current news – otherwise the rest of the site is a poorly-executed cnn.com wannabe.

There is a fun section about the creation of Ananova, including outtakes of her impersonating celebrities. “Go ahead punk, make my day!”
