3x60m-haiku. From Japan with PHP.

This one was conducted in Juli 2011. It used Twitter and some custom PHP to tweet a traditional Japanese Haiku (in German, that is) every 3 hours. The process lasted for 6 Months, which are roughly 180 days – hence the name 3x60m. You can download the script. You will need twitteroauth and OAuth, too. But read one of the 1440 Haikus generated:

An allen Häusern,
das Wasser still geworden,
vom Baum fällt ein Blatt.

which means in English:

On every house,
the waters calmed,
a leaf falls from a tree.

You can buy the book on Amazon.
