Crave constantly begs for more resources, like any self-respecting blog, but a robot helper isn't exactly what we had in mind.
NEC's "PaPeRo" is designed to automatically assemble multimedia features for blogs, finding relevant material online based on conversations you have with it. (We're not kidding.)
