    Nice interview. I totally agree that “An author’s style resides in syntax.” With gnoetry, especially when using multiple input texts (say, 50-200), the collaboration with the machine allows for the end-user’s own style to come through blended with whatever formal constraints–particularly with the blank verse option–the program follows. You might consider this the machine’s syntax/style.

    When two texts are used, say Whitman and Lessig in Free Grass, there is that wonderful cross-polination of styles that can be so amusing too, although there is much less room for the end-user’s “own” syntax to come in.

    BTW: I’m doing, I think, something interesting on Twitter. It makes nice decoration in my blog sidebar, at least.
