Blogging Plants?

Look out, your garden may replace you in the blogosphere.

Reuters reports that a Sweetheart plant in Japan posts daily blog entries on how it's feeling. As a reporter, I'm automatically suspect of the actual "voice" of the plant but I do believe they too are living beings.

The plant is able to blog thanks to electric signals and a computer algorithm.
