Subject: randomising I would be very grateful for examples of computing work in the humanities or human sciences that makes use of the machine's potential for randomisation, for generating results with a significant degree of unpredictability -- 'chaotic' results, if you will. This potential was designed in from the beginning, insofar as conditional branching and overwriting of instructions cannot be foreseen because they may depend on the results of previous calculations, or esp on inputs from the world. Many thanks for a any suggestions.
