Plagiarism

A website called I Write Like has been popping up all over the blogosphere, using the power of Science to identify the famous author whose style most closely matches your own.


I tried a few entries from my blog, and the program came to this conclusion:

H. P. Lovecraft

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




Apparently he wrote a lot of Ursula Andress movie reviews. Either than, or I'm writing a lot about being scared of fish.


Just to test the program, I entered the following line of deliberately bad writing:


Yeah I'm really good at the writing and stuff. Back in high school I used to write stories and shit for my English teacher Mrs Backfat and she said I was really good.

That was awesome!!1!


And the writer that most resembles?


I write like
Cory Doctorow

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




LOL.
