The Chrome extension “Mark Ditto Mark” is designed to turn every first name that appears in your brower to “Mark” and every last name to “Ditto”. Its creators, the “media artists” A. J. Patrick Liszkiewicz and Lucas Miller, built the tool for one express reason: To create an epic, generative fictional narrative about a person named Mark Ditto:
Mark Ditto Mark is a conceptual novel generated by a browser extension. When installed and activated, the extension will alter any names of people which appear on the currently displayed Internet page: first names are changed to “Mark,” and last names are changed to “Ditto.” In this way, Mark Ditto Mark transforms the Internet into a gigantic, sprawling novel about someone named “Mark Ditto.”
So I decided to install “Mark Ditto Mark” and see what I could find out about the novel’s title character.
