As I understand it, TypeDrawing as a particular brushwork aesthetic - width as a way of indicating gestural acceleration. Thus

slow mouse = timid gesture = small type
fast mouse = bold gesture = large type

This works in brushwork if the fast hand is also a pressing hand - that is, in some ways this is a substitute for a pressure-sensitive tablet interface. On the other hand, I wonder about wiring the algorith the opposite way, as if it were a drippy watercolor brush:

slow gesture = spreading drip = large type
fast gesture = light smear = small type

I find the equivalency between speed and font size more interesting than the kind of equivalency, I suppose. I haven’t played with Illustrator for a while, but don’t most vector graphics suites with pressure tablet support allow you to do something like this kind of “font brush”? If this is a web-reimplementation of just one such feature, I suppose this would go towards Lev Manovich’s arguments that software editing suites are the great art of our time.

Of course, there is something compelling about any feature of a complex system when separated and considered in isolation….

The text "I am a chatbot" becomes the face of a chatbot, just as the customized responses in an A.L.I.C.E., or other chatbot, will become the persona of an autonomous agent. Also, we do not make chatbots necessarily. We make systems that will create the impression of the bot through its interaction with the user and the program. The user must interact with this doodle to decide where "I" begins and the "chatbot" ends. When they succeed, they say in their minds that they are a chatbot.
