Post Who do you write like?
I'm not sure how this works but its pretty cool.

By submitting entire blog posts I have been told that I write like:

-H.P. Lovecraft (posting about psychoanalysis & Nietzsche)
-David Foster Wallace (global water shortage & a 2nd time in a review of the book "Past, Space & Self")
-Edgar Allan Poe (cosmology)
-Kurt Vonnegut (philosophy of Nietzsche)

I went back and resubmitted the same posts a second time in random order replicating the original outputs. Apparently word choice and style can be compared against famous authors. I wonder who exactly is on the selection database. The hyperlinks to amazon.com search results is a nice touch.

Who do you write like?

Post Re: Who do you write like?
Pretty cool! However the lightening response in which it provides an answer is a bit troublesome. I would think that my wonderful, complex, thought invoking, and beautifully crafted prose would take even the fastest super computer a bit of time to analyze and identify. Ha!

Who I write like shall remain unknown, as I am not sure that I want to write like them...horror, come on!

That was really cool. It said I write like Gertrude Stein. It was a copy of a children's book I had written for my son though...hmmm...ahhh well.

"Stein was gregarious and had a wealth of friends and modern paintings that attracted many to her Paris salon.[1] Her personality also allowed her to transform her social outlets, by focusing on new friendships, members of the youthful generation of the time."

Lmao. This thing is a joke, right? I put a piece of my writing in that thing and it said I write like Stephenie Meyer. WTF! I looked her name up on the internet and she wrote the twilight series. WTF X 1000000000000000000!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That thing is jacked up. It must be random. I'm going to try another piece and see what it says.

I too have my doubts about this application. It told me that I write like Isaac Asimov. I do not read Science Fiction. I might read Isaac in the future....
