I'm 60% Female

...rather, a computer algorithm thinks so after I fed it 800 or so words from my other livejournal posts.

Here's an explanation from the site by the person who wrote the little script:

The computational linguists behind the algorithm, Koppel and Argamon, took a bunch of fiction and looked for trends based on gender. Using complicated formulas, they determined that male writers tended to write more about specific things like an apple, a book, or the car. In contrast, female writers wrote about connections to things like my apple, your book, or our car. The nouns themselves (apple, book, car) didn't matter much but the preceding qualifier, whether an article (a, an, the) or possessive (my, your, our), did.

Further comment and analysis on this algorithm has suggested that different writing situations demand different styles, resulting in fluctuating scores from even the same writer. Which is probably why the author of the Gender Genie site says that "I [...] believe that the Genie works no better than the flip of a coin."

Not like that matters anyway, go dig out something you've written and waste some time. It's what the Internet was made for.

For the record, of course, this post is rated securely into the 80% "masculine" range.

Being Absent Minded

2005-02-22 | 23:20:00
Mood: contemplative
Music: Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water

It's a little bit like those dreams where you're at school and everyone's staring at you and you look down and realize that you're naked.

Except that I couldn't just wake myself up. Instead I made a beeline for my dorm so that I could change into concert dress before 7:30. At least only a few people noticed me.

This brings up the question, though: why don't ensembles perform in jeans and t-shirts? Do black slacks and dress shirts make us sound better? Maybe I shouldn't read into this too much.

The great thing about convenience stores is they're right there when you're feeling sick and need some good friends to accompany you though the night.
