Busy Unemployed Man Defends atomTV’s AI-Written Content: “I’m Like The Beatles, But for Blogs,” He Says

In an age where AI has infiltrated everything from our fridges to our dating lives, it’s no surprise that it’s also penning our prose. John Stericker may not have a job, but he’s possibly the busiest unemployed man on the internet, the sole human engine behind the cult-favourite atomTV, has recently come under fire for his use of AI to write content on his passion project. His defence? “The Beatles just used AI to release a song 40 years after John Lennon died. Are you having a go at them?”

Stericker, who has more ideas than time, insists that his use of AI is not only practical but necessary. “You know, James Cameron cast an AI in his Terminator movies,” Stericker argued in a recent interview, “and Steven Spielberg made a movie called, you guessed it, AI. So why can’t a simple blogger like me use a little artificial intelligence to stitch together a narrative?”

Critics have been quick to accuse Stericker of diminishing the human touch in storytelling, but he maintains that his website remains a bastion of personal creativity. “It’s like a join-the-dots puzzle you did as a kid, remember those? I lay out the dots and place them on the page, and the AI just fills in the gaps. All ideas are mine,” Stericker declared, possibly while dramatically gesturing to a whiteboard filled with conspiracy theories.

As the sole custodian of atomTV, Stericker explains that he’s simply too inundated with brilliant insights to hammer out every single word. “Sure, I could spend my days slaving over a hot keyboard, but why not let AI do the heavy lifting? I mean, if it’s good enough to simulate a new Beatles track, it’s good enough for my little slice of the internet.”

Detractors say that the reliance on AI could lead to a homogenised web, devoid of human quirks and foibles. Supporters, meanwhile, argue that Stericker is at the forefront of a new content revolution. “It’s eco-friendly,” Stericker jests, “think of all the creative energy I’m saving!”

The debate rages on, with Stericker’s loyal following firmly on his side. They argue that his personal brand of genius can’t be replicated by a machine, despite the fact that a machine is replicating his content. And to those who say that true art can’t be manufactured by algorithms, Stericker has a ready retort: “Yeah, and I bet you think that a robot could never write a symphony, paint a masterpiece, or invent a new type of burrito. But here we are, in the future. So buckle up, buttercup.”

As for atomTV, the site continues to churn out content at an impressive rate, with Stericker at the helm — or at least, hovering somewhere in the vicinity. “One day, we’ll all be telling our grandchildren about how we used to write with our hands,” Stericker muses. “They’ll laugh and laugh, and then they’ll fly away on their hoverboards or whatever.”

Whether you see John Stericker as a visionary or a villain in the saga of AI-generated content, one thing is for sure: atomTV is on the cutting edge of something. Whether that something is genius or just good old-fashioned laziness is up to you to decide.
