The festival will culminate in a dazzling red-carpet black-tie gala: the Botskers Awards Ceremony. It is here that the finest films – the films that have raised the robotic bar, the films that have inspired men and women to look at metal and widgets like never before – are honored with a coveted, robot-fabricated Botsker statuette. http://robotfilmfestival.com

Data's on the CNN.com homepage today :-] But the article is more an excuse to think about creativity than just me & the bot. http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/03/living/creativity-improvisation-intelligence-heather-knight/index.html?hpt=hp_c2
The comedian, a small robot named Data, takes the stage.

Pretty nice. I discovered by searching the text that various word forms built on "play" appeared (chess playing, for instance, and basketball players), but it didn't ever talk about "play" in the sense of playful activity. Sometimes that's akin to what the article calls improvisation, don't you think?

I haven't gotten to the RFF yet, but one of these years I will. Or I'll send my autonomous robot to gather impressions and report back…

I notice in the picture that your dress was color-coordinated with the robot's eyes. Stylish!
