Web Poetry

A million monkeys typing on a million typewriters will eventually produce all the works of Shakespeare


Although it's not too likely to work, the goal of this project is to automatically evolve web pages that are interesting to me. This here program does have a bit of an advantage over the monkeys in that I can change how it makes decisions.

Current Methodology

The current page generator is simply generating random words. It reminds me a bit of refrigerator magnet poetry. You can vote for a page you particularly like or particularly dislike by opening it and using the form at the bottom.

Each page is assigned a score based on various things. Pages with low scores die off and are replaced with new ones.

Future Experimentation

Use a genetic algorithm (a reasonable "I'm not sure what I'm doing yet" search procedure).
