Random Entry by Vasileios Drolias


On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog

Shy, stout, antisocial Harry spends his day with Sheba, his digital persona in the virtual world of the internet –social networking sites, chat rooms, avatars. It’s a spectacular new world whose inhabitants –contrary to popular belief– don’t lose their identities. In reality, they create a new identity that may be more real than their actual one.

Harry’s Sheba has supernatural abilities, is gorgeous, crude, provocative, and immensely popular in the digital world. She has many lovers, whom she changes often, offering her creator and “pimp” endless hours of pleasure and “self satisfaction”. But at the same time Harry starts communicating via chat rooms with Shirley, a graduate student in Philosophy at a university in Boston. Shirley gradually initiates him into the world of philosophy and artificial intelligence, increasingly impressing Harry with her knowledge and mind. Their relationship develops and Harry, now in love, decides to make the leap into reality and travel to Boston to meet Shirley. But there he’s greeted by the absolute surprise.

The Chinese Room is a journey into the lesser known fields of technology, artificial intelligence and the cyberworld. It’s a novel that familiarizes the reader with the incredible reality of modern computers and the internet.
