Taroko Gorge

Description (in English): 

A poetry generator produced first in Python and then implemented in Javascript, Montfort's "Taroko Gorge" generates nature poetry about the national park of the same name in Taiwan. Since its initial publication, the program has been hacked, remixed, and reimplemented by a number of other authors.
