About the Author
geoff wrote a computer program
and gave a few starter words to it
and the computer program wrote these poems
by following a simple algorithm
which I describe here:
step one: look at the last four or three words that were written.
step two: search on google for those words as a phrase (i.e. in quotes)
step three: find the first webpage in the Google search results for this phrase
step four: find out what word followed that phrase on that page
step five: write this word down
step six: go back to step one, until at least two sentences are written
or a maximum of x number of words have been written.
and he just took the words and added carriage returns
so that they look kind of like poems
i guess they are poems
what do you think?
want to try writing your own poems?
you can do it your own way of course
or give geoff's program a try here
