But of course this means that I have found it quite difficult to publish this or publicize it. Of course this is all nothing to do with AI, as I elaborate on the Turing Test page. like when was 05/02/89 :1 the 05/02/89 * paris is a beautiful city 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: last time that you got laid..unless it was when you 05/02/89 :2 were born o'my he said something different.

In 1995 I finally got around to setting up this page to tell everyone about it.
MGonz is finally written up as a book chapter: Humphrys, Mark (2008), "How my program passed the Turing Test", Chapter 15 of Parsing the Turing Test: Philosophical and Methodological Issues in the Quest for the Thinking Computer, Robert Epstein, Gary Roberts and Grace Beber (eds.), Springer, 2008.
"his programme induced a dialogue more human than any other I've seen" - Turing's biographer Andrew Hodges (author of Alan Turing: the Enigma) in "The Turing Test in practice".

See if you can work out why this happened: * jesus who let you near me go away 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: i'll never tell 05/02/89 :0 * jesus who let you near me go away 05/02/89 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: [SOMEONE #2] 05/02/89 :2 From SOMEONE at DRAKE: are there two people on your username?
