Netochka Nezvanova has gone missing. She used to post regularly to the music- dsp mailing list I subscribe to. Her posts were ingenious and infuriating: sometimes she answered difficult technical questions with great clarity while wantonly insulting the DSP old- guard; other times, she ruined interesting threads with fascinating but nonsensical wordplay.

The name Netochka Nezvanova is a pseudonym, so we may never know what became of her. Perhaps her artist’s statement says it, uh, best.
