Top Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
Anybody who was on usenets, is interested in artificial intelligence, follows squinky net memes and inchoate viral striving is unaware of the notorious "Mentifex Diagram". The little map of ASCII marks showing a flow chart of mind was a super-meme in its day, a predecessor to QR squiggles and contemporary confusions.

And now it's an ebook. A further medium for a growing virus to devour and replicate. This may be what this AI has been aiming at all along, just waiting until the technology supported it.

The book somewhat "outs" the diagram's creator, ATM. (Or Arthur Murray, if you prefer) but blitzerati know that it's really another avatar of the mysterious, bewildering "Mentifex".

Now an author. And you can now be a reader. This is the story behind the diagram, the novelization of a decades-long interactive plot that lived on BBS boards even before Gore invented the internet.

Can that whole wide-ranging sideshow and web-based intelligence be captured and presented in ebook form?

Only one way to find out.
