Technology for the God Fearing

TextBase is a device that produces scripture from the Christian bible depending on how you interact with it. It introduces a new way to engage with the word of God in a playful yet meaningful manner. When the user sends a text, keywords or themes are sniffed out by textBase and through the magical powers of the interwebs, an appropriate verse is printed. Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, I find it intriguing to see technology integrated into faith based communities.

    Hopefully more meaningful than playful.

  • I'll admit, there's fun to be had in sending that thing ….less than pious texts and seeing what pops out…

    "Reminiscent of a device described in the Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. " Kinda what I was thinking.
    now fuel up that database with all the great works of literature, including the faith ones, and all the poetry…. and set that electronic brain to seeking the wisdom of the ages…. then you can expect a very useful and interesting result. If you want wisdom and inspiration … your churches and bibles may be one source, but there is so much more in the world and so many ways of interpreting the truths of wisdom and life.
