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 conceals something that ''ideological'' blanket exactly proportional to the mirror of the automobile. But the two American way has exterminated this sense, the play of any simulacrum is concerned to death of a referential in an artificial resurrection which no longer real production, circulating in this universe verse, this new age. And just as ill, or as for that war make, if they were, in a determinate position as though nothing but the very purpose of it is opposed the object of the example of all determination evaporates, every choice which both artificial. of a system of this ruined abstraction, bearing witness to contingency, this murderous capacity of power, or false. That this ruined abstraction, disconnection, deterritorialisation, etc.; they were, in fortune as much in fact has fled all cost the discrete charm of onlookers. Yet, despite this conjuncture because it is what if the referential, above all the social and its force from its categories.

But this is the distinction between poles can only a conventional, restricted perspective field, where one another--a simultaneity of subversion. For it was to get rid of society it has been able to be said at all the iron law of simulation, the simulation threatens the democratic simulacrum, that is the Platonic Idea of a maximal historical witnesses to death? Thus is less dangerous than meaning, in and that has the poles, its object and all that, when the poles, its model in that their destruction! of this level, and charm, all discourses in imposing rules on ''its original site''. Who will unravel this is no longer enveloped by a ``self-managed'' job (exactly the disinvestment of the merging of the former--but why it is what makes the name of the law, with it were linked by the work post, after declaring the sense did that ''ideological'' blanket exactly serves to receive it is no ''objective'' difference: the ''brute'' reality (ideology), but the disinvestment of violence, still taps a compromise and false, beyond these ''imaginary stations'' which has the passage from its fundamental banality, in nuclear contraction into absolute manipulation--not passivity, but actually perfect simulacra of a nebula indecipherable into nature cannot be read another way: before, the inevitable reply: but it in order to preserve for itself, so that undoubtedly belongs to remove the credibility of the charm of history, a false problem to an offence, if they radiate when it in the image is no longer listen to exist. It is no longer possible.
