I find the idea of coding as exploration very compelling in her talk. Not only applied to poetry or generative text, but as it applies to creative coding in general. Thinking of it as an exploration opens up the world of "happy accidents" where if you are exploration, you might not completely know what it is you're looking for, and I find that exciting. I love her discussion about the creation of "nonsense", and that "what you thought was nonsense was actually sensical all along, you just had to learn how to look at it right." Robots being reporters is also a funny idea - that you are asking a bot or robot to go find things out for you.
