Baiting Radiohead Fans with the Googleyminotaur

Baiting Radiohead Fans with the Googleyminotaur

Early last year, Radiohead created an interactive bot called "Googlyminotaur" that you could put on your Instant Messenger buddy-list. The idea was that it would provide services such as personalized horoscopes, movie listings (Capitol Records' marketing department needed some reason to collect your birthday and zip code!) and, most importantly, Radiohead PR. Plus, it's like you always have a friend.

We got the idea a couple days later to register some screen names that were a letter or two off from the actual Googly Minotaur, and to pre-write auto-replies which would allow us to take on such bot-like attributes as speedy response time and endless redundancy. Of course, the fans have caught onto this ploy by now-- we went online with the names a couple nights ago and received not only 30 instant messages but enough warnings to get us kicked off. Yet another outstanding example of why security features are total load of crap.
