Around 2003, Ellen Zweig and I translated almost all the 1000
Character Essay; that translation was the first post I made
under the new management of Cybermind. I copied the post,
applied the process of elimination to avoid duplicates (there
are no duplicates in the original); here are the results, a
new composition in itself :
