Developing the Enpersonator

2010 March 2
by Tedb0t

Using blog corpora from The Blog Authorship Corpus and the Political Blog Corpora, I have begun developing a simple blog-post generator for Enpersonator, the identity-creating software part of Automenon, an artwork in progress with Sofy Yuditskaya.

See Enpersonator in action here: http://soniayuditskaya.tumblr.com/

Enpersonator is in development here: http://github.com/virgildisgr4ce/Enpersonator.  It requires the Python Tumblr library, which requires Django for its utilities.  The Markov Generator is modified from Adam Parrish’s.

The current version uses all 5 of the blogs in the Political Blog Corpora, comprising 133,953 tokens.  Not too shabby, but still not enough to avoid lots of wholesale reproductions.
