This work was created through running Markov chains on 4 texts:
- Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg
- Zero To One by Peter Thiel
- The Singularity Is Near by Ray Kurzweil
- Six Memos For the Next Millennium by Italo Calvino
I was interested in where this texts would intersect given their commonalities of the near future, differing ideas of progress, and their own unique prescriptions for the reader.

This project started as an exploration of a type of language. I wanted to examine the coded ways women are expected to act in corporate America though analysis of Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” and the ways in which we ascribe value via examination of Peter Thiel’s “Zero To One.”
I used Textblob to create a concordance of verbs from Lean In and adjectives from Zero To One. The aim was to examine Italo Calvino’s lecture on quickness from “Six Memos For the Next Millennium.” At this point I became interested more interested in exploring the generative possibilities of texts as opposed to rewriting text for this assignment, but would like to continue on this branch next.
See the concordance for Lean In and Zero To One and the code below. Markov.py came from Allison Parrish’s github repository for the class.
