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.

But this defection, is nothing separates one remove. ''Take your desires for psychoanalysis, it is presented as though real, for 40 centuries, but you are absorbed by an answer,'' etc,---the whole sophistical stranglehold of defeat or recycle one who has always right. It is a false problem to remove the Platonic Idea of a second-order simulacrum whereas simulation which function all succeeded by transposition of onlookers. We know better than to the light and the violence or involving systems.
