DIVINE INTERVENTION VIA SPAM

EXTRACT FROM SOME SPAM I RECEIVED, IT RELATES TO THE
COMMUNICATION PROJECT (IRONIC ISNT IT...)THIS WAS PART OF A CHARACTER STRING USED TO TRICK THE SPAM
ROBOTS.
THERE WAS ALSO REFERANCE TO A DOOR BUT OPENS ONCE STUFF AND HEAPS OF THINGS LIKE THE PILOT IS OUT SURFING....
MORE WEIRD.....

EXTRACT "This program is not intended as a miracle program. It is meant to be a bridge--the
bridge from real objects to 2-dimensional photos. It is meant to allow the students
to hear the words repeatedly and then in context. It is meant to help start the
students talking. This program is not the finished end product, it is a tool. You, the
teacher, parent or therapist, are the best communicators. When your student or
child looks at you as if to say please Teach Me To Talk use this program as part
of the process..But, I spent the next three weeks making a piece of simple software for her son to
her specifications. While I was at it, I put 4-8 pictures on the screen as well. The
simple program was finished and ready for her child to see. As I was presenting it,
the other children in my classroom were pushing each other to get to the computer
screen to touch that Touch Window and hear the word spoken again and again. I
looked at these kids and was amazed. There was no music, no animation, nothing
cute about this program at all, just real pictures with real words. I was stunned. I
just watched the children. Within 10 minutes, several children who had never said
a word in their life, made approximations of several words. I was hooked..
freaky....
