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 the “most feared woman on the Internet,”10 N.N. turned up in the mid-1990s on various and electronic musicrelated mailing lists and bombed them with messages written in a private code work language.
