Being a connoisseur of space exploration, robotics, and linguistics, this video hit right home with me. There's one thing, in particular, I'd like to mention here however, and that is the beautiful use of metaphor by Allison. The use of 'bots' we're sending out on a journey into linguistic space and who are sending us signals back from their exploration is an incredibly powerful one in my mind, and it really helped me shape my project. It allowed me to think of my work as all of these little creatures I was sending out into the void and getting answers back from - quite a novel approach to creative thought.
