Exquisite Haiku

Exquisite Haiku is an experimental web application written with Node.js and Socket.io that makes it possible for groups of people to work together in real-time to write haiku over the course of 30-40 minutes. Loosely inspired by the Exquisite Corpse (a classic Surrealist parlor game from the 1920s) I was curious to see if I could create a social algorithm that would produce “authorless” texts – poems that make sense, but can’t be traced back to any individual person.
