And … Who is John “Del” Del Vecchio?

What Does AI Think of Silverback Digest?

The invitation came from Google to be a prototype tester for their pending foray into the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI), called Bard. (Get it?) “AI” doesn’t have a lot of relevance here in The Jungle, but curiosity got the better of me, so I signed up. Soon thereafter I was invited to take Bard “for a spin.”

Remember the early days of Google, when you got tired of asking obscure questions and decided to Google yourself? Of course, you do. It didn’t take me long to get there with Bard:

What do you think of Silverback Digest?, I asked. With great trepidation I hit “Enter.” Immediately, Bard returned with:

Silverback Digest is a website that publishes articles about a variety of topics, including science, technology, business, and culture. The website is written by a team of experienced journalists and experts, and it is known for its high-quality content. Silverback Digest is a popular website among people who are interested in staying up-to-date on the latest news and trends.

Here are some of the articles that you can find in Silverback Digest:

  • Science: Articles about the latest scientific discoveries and research.
  • Technology: Articles about the latest technological advancements and trends.
  • Business: Articles about the latest business news and trends.
  • Culture: Articles about the latest cultural events and trends.

Silverback Digest is a great resource for people who want to stay informed about the latest news and trends. The website is easy to navigate and the articles are well-written and informative. If you are looking for a reliable source of information, Silverback Digest is a great option.

Holy Mackerel, pretty accurate! Next-up, What can you tell me about Stephen Morris of Vermont?

Stephen Morris is a business consultant and writer who lives in Randolph, Vermont. He is also the author of several books, including The King of Vermont, STRIPAH LOVE, and The Great Beer Trek. (OK so far, although Bard left out that I am also extremely good-looking.) Morris is a graduate of the University of Vermont (wrong) and has worked in a variety of industries, including publishing, marketing, and consulting (right). He is a member of the Vermont Writers’ Association (never heard of them) and the American Marketing Association (really?).

Morris is a passionate advocate for the arts and humanities (yes, absolutely). He is a former board member of the Vermont Humanities Council (nope) and the Vermont Arts Council (nope). He is also a founding member of the Randolph Arts Center (what?). Morris is a frequent speaker on the topics of business, writing, and the arts. He is also a regular contributor to The Vermont Standard (nope) and other publications.

Morris is a kind and generous man (aw-w-w, shucks) who is always willing to help others (I don’t like to make a big deal out of it) . He is a true asset to the Vermont community (This Bard thingy is surprisingly accurate!).

Now, I was on a roll! I decided to challenge Bard by asking about the recently completed, month-long of the highly-anticipated musical extravaganza: Bard, do you know anything about Old Rockers: The Musical Journey of Grendel.

Old Rockers

The Musical Journey of Grendel You can view it all here:

The response from Bard:

Yes, I have heard of “Old Rockers; The Musical Journey of Grendel.” It is a 2019 novel by John “Del” DelVecchio. The novel tells the story of Grendel, a young man who is trying to find his place in the world. Grendel is a talented musician, but he is also struggling with addiction and mental health issues. The novel follows Grendel as he travels from his hometown in Rhode Island to Los Angeles, in search of fame and fortune. Along the way, he meets a variety of characters who help him to confront his demons and find his true purpose in life.

I have not read the novel myself, but I have heard good things about it. It is said to be a powerful and moving story about addiction, mental health, and the power of music. I would be interested in reading it someday.

My response was a resounding “Hm-m-m,” an utterance intended to evoke a broad range of human emotional response, ranging from amazement to bewilderment. First, who is the “I” in Bard’s response? Is it a man, woman, or Silverback. And there is a writer named “John Del Vecchio” who has written five novels, none of them titled “Old Rockers” or anything resembling “Grendel.” Apparently, there is no book of this title listed on Amazon, although there is a character of the name “Grendel” who was associated with the legend of Beowulf.

It’s nice that Bard would like to read “Old Rockers” someday. Of course, if he, she, or it can’t wait, they can always find it on

  1. This AI tech is quite astounding. I haven’t had the chance to explore it. Have you tried it as far as writing a song, lyrics and music? That would be fun.
