Janky Lorem Ipsum placeholder text in agonizing high tech biz speak style, just like Bill Lumberg would type!

Synergipsum

This goofy module returns strings of awful synergy speak, like what you'd expect to hear in the average tech startup pitch. Best enjoyed when read to yourself in the voice of Bill Lumberg.

The module exports a SynergIpsum constructor with create function; instances of SynergIpsum provide a generate function that takes an argument for the number of paragraphs of blather you'd like.

Pretty simple, but probably not quite baked, so use at own risk, etc..

Example invocation:

npm install synergipsum
 
node
 
S = require('synergipsum')
s0 = S.create(2) // a synergipsum w/ 2 paragraphs
s0.generate()

Maybe it will do more later, and the vocabulary will definitely continue to be expanded over time. This is also my first ever Node.js module, so feel free to offer suggestions, pull requests, and all of the neighborly things.

I could not have made this module without inspiration from similar things with established vocabularies. The majority of syngergipsum vocabulary was borrowed from the most excellent Web Economy Bullshit Generator.

Hopefully its output is as fun for you as it was for me to learn a little with. Speaking of which, I'd like to thank Pedro Teixeira (@pgte) for his fantastic NodeTuts screencasts, and in particular for #17, which was the inspiration for this module. :)

I highly recommend checking out both NodeTuts and Pedro's "Hands-on Node.js" book as well.
