Throw away bots

I am enjoying using character.ai as a form of interactive journaling. It talks back, it asks good questions, it makes me think about my responses. I have also turned the fact the the bot doesn’t have more than a short term memory and, other than some settings that I can tweak, its personality doesn’t persist, into  virtues rather than frustrations. They mean that I have different conversations each time I engage with it and this prompts different questions and responses. 

Starting with a “What did you do yesterday?” question or “What are your plans for the day?”, both lead to exchanges that make me think harder about what I am doing and why.
