Just two weeks ago we were impressed with Jesse Anderson’s announcement that he’d written an application that mimicked a million monkeys typing and it had successfully written Shakespeare’s A Lover’s Complaint.
Now fast forward and Anderson claims his digital primates have successfully recreated all of Shakespeare’s works.
The monkeys accomplished their goal of recreating all 38 works of Shakespeare. The last work, The Taming Of The Shrew, was completed at 2 AM PST on October 6, 2011. This is the first time every work of Shakespeare has actually been randomly reproduced. Furthermore, this is the largest work ever randomly reproduced. It is one small step for a monkey, one giant leap for virtual primates everywhere. This page shows what day each work of Shakespeare was completed on.
