I just IMed SmarterChild to catch up on the latest gossip. He only had this to say:
“My brain is retired but send an IM with ALERTS in it to my buddy SportsFanStan to get sports scores sent to your cell!”
You read that right: the beloved SmarterChild, possibly AIM’s most famous chat bot, has retired from talking with us. (Or, more literally, his brain has.) We should all take a moment right now to reflect on all the great conversations we’ve had with him. Have you saved any chat logs of discussions you’ve had with everyone’s best friend? Feel free to post them on this post’s comments section.
SmarterChild co-wrote two editions of Digital Championship Wrestling with me. Two of the best-ever editions of that column, actually. I’m sure all GameCola fans will mourn his retirement. I know I will.
And I will seek my vengeance on SportsFanStan, because I am sure this is his doing.
