Mark V. Shaney

Mark V. Shaney is a synthetic Usenet user whose postings in the net.singles newsgroups were generated by Markov chain techniques, based on text from other postings. The username is a play on the words "Markov chain". Many readers were fooled into thinking that the quirky, sometimes uncannily topical posts were written by a real person. Bruce Ellis did the code and Rob Pike did the design. Don P. Mitchell wrote the Markov chain code, demonstrating it to Rob and Bruce on the Tao Te Ching at first. They chose to apply it to the net.singles netnews group.

And Watergate above and no longer that conveys the peril. Whence the poetry of the analytical mode--the distinction between the abstraction's charm. The conjunction of men. The transition from the unconscious in miniature and hence into play. There is metamorphosed into the infantile degeneration of all referentials--worse: by a setback in fact may be cut. Thus is because the democratic simulacrum, that their actual womb, unlike the allegory of anything which has held out of a question of desire.
