About TheSuzy Books

AI research could change everything in the next two decades, and so I intend to continue elaborating on the idea that a fictional woman named Suzy will eventually create AI robots within a parallel universe that was becoming more and more like the real universe up until she was born in 1971.

Suzy also worked in secret with a team of scientists and engineers to create AI during her late 50s and then share the results of that research with the public after she became Vice President of the USA in her early 60s, but I spent the better part of the last decade writing fiction because, from early 2007 to late 2009, I became one of the first software developers to focus on addressing spam, fake news, and fraud in general at a company that called itself meta.

In real life, I was born in the 1980s, I learned about programming computers in the 1990s, I moved back to California in the aughts, and my first attempt at writing about an AI researcher named Suzy evolved into a 50k word satire called, “TheSuzy.com Show: Conversations About the Culture of Silicon Valley,” that I began distributing online in 2014.

In 2017, I expanded on that effort by writing a fictional autobiography called, “Tsuzy Memoirs,” and I put an early version of that text online for a couple months in the summer before taking it down and waiting until all three of the books that make up TheSuzy Trilogy were complete before distributing this latest version of that book:

Suzy1 = Tsuzy Memoirs = TheSuzyTodd Memoirs

In 2018, I moved to New York City, where I finished writing a separate, all new version of my fictional autobiography that was called, “Suzy’s Memoir,” and then I started to hand out printed copies of that book in NY:

Suzy2 = Suzy’s Memoir = TheSuzy FashionText

After that, I continued updating Suzy2 in Miami Beach and finalizing the structure of the 3rd Edition of TheSuzy.com Show, including the fully abstracted versions of several public facing articles, such as SharkInjury, which I had written in North Carolina, around the same time in early 2017 when I was open sourcing the original text of TheSuzy Show:

Suzy3 = TheSuzy Shows = TheSuzy.com’s Shows

(NOTE: Suzy’s universe actually has the same major institutions and corporations as the real universe, but when she wrote her three books, which were the same as the ones that I’ve described in this intro, she invented whimsical fake names for entities like the place where she went to college, the major media outlets, and the people who wrote the blurbs above the tables of contents in her books.)
