"I Write Like," a website that lets you paste in a few paragraphs of writing and have it analyzed and compared to 50 famous authors.
According to the Associated Press, this fun little website isn't the brainchild of some English professor from Kenyon or Swathmore. Nope. The creator of "I Write Like" is a 27-year-old Russian (yeah, Russian) software programmer living in Montenegro (Montenegro? Really?). Oh, and English is his second language.
For example, there's no Herman Melville at present, but when a passage from Moby Dick is analyzed, it comes out as written by Stephen King. Go figure. Author Margaret Atwood, who is among the fifty authors, seems to be Stephen King, as well (she ran her own experiment).
David Foster Wallaces. Hm. Oh, and I ran this blog post through the analyzer. Another David Foster Wallace.
Go on. Give it a try and see what you come up with. I'm going to keep trying until I get Eudora Welty or Dr. Seuss.
