Based on the text analysis of the past 9 posts, Urlai is telling me that a) I write like like an old lady and b) that I am happy.

I am going to take it as a compliment and instead, think that I am probably wise beyond my years. No? Ok, I might just as well admit I am a bitter old person (if not by age, at least by inclination). That’s why the “happy” part makes no sense.

ETA: I crunched my business site as well, just out of curiosity and here’s what I found out: is probably written by a male somewhere between 51-65 years old. The writing style is academic and happy most of the time.

So, if you write in a business like tone, the system has been trained to assume you are male. Also, it placed me in a completely different age group (not that it is the right one either, but that’s another point altogether). I do wonder about the predictors used to determine gender, though.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
