I’ve been writing a story about RR (Robot Repairman and/or Robot Repairer).
Robot Repairman (RR or Robot Repairer) performs robot repairs manually by hand. This site Robot Repairs has been created to allow the Robot Repairer an easy method to publish a blog, post to Facebook and Twitter from one convenient place. Robot is an ill defined term and repair is also an ill defined term in an always being modified world where only today exists. Some arbitrary history. The term Robot has an inauspicious history. According to the dictionary (at least the internet version of a dictionary) Robot comes from the czech term robota (meaning forced labor) and the term is coined in K. Capek’s play R.U.R. (Rossumovi Univerzální Roboti) ‘Rossum’s Universal Robots’ (1920).
The notion of automated entities is much older. Some refer to greek mythology and the mechanical beings created by Hephaestus (Vulcan for you Romans). You may remember Harry Hamlin’s sidekick Bubo the owl in the amazingly weird 1981 version of Clash of the Titans.
Stay tuned for more as I figure out the rest of the story and how to publish it.
