Description (in English): 

Jodi’s aesthetic of contingent codes and user interfaces has been contrarily adapted as outright user enslavement. Using a comparable aesthetic of contingent and unintelligible code, the antiorp / integer / Netochka Nezvanova project turned the notion of proprietary software to its ultimate extreme. Dubbed by online magazine Salon.com the “most feared woman on the Internet,”10 N.N. turned up in the mid-1990s on various net.art and electronic musicrelated mailing lists and bombed them with messages written in a private code work language.
