I write like ...

The new site "I Write Like" has gone viral. It analyzes your writing style and tries to compare it with known authors, I pasted a blog post to the analyzer and it said I write like Canadian science fiction writer Cory Doctorow. I pasted another post and it said I write like David Foster Wallace. Another post was written like P.G. Wodehouse. But I got Cory Doctorow mostly.

The site analyzes your text based largely on the words used. Works of just about 50 authors are uploaded to be used for comparison. The results may not be accurate but it's fun to know how you compare to other writers. Now I intend to read a Cory Doctorow book.

CNN tried to punch in some text to the analyzer and found out that an Obama speech was written ala Stephen King and a Supreme Court decision was written like Dan Brown.

And this post was written like Cory Doctorow.
