As on YouTube, "Think it, type it" is the operative maxim.

Posted some questions to a Marisa Olson review of the above-described Cory Arcangel piece on Rhizome.org [link goes to the wrong page - see below].*
Responses to the questions are welcome (except please don't call me "hostile" as was the case on my old blog--that's not productive). You need to sign up for Rhizome to post.
Update: Martin John Callanan has a rather devastating point about the piece, from the thread linked to above:

'Back and forth' isn't in the nature of 'out-of-office' replies. The standard is to send only once to each recipient. Ie, the computers should only send one reply each. To create the loop, the standard has been overwritten, creating a situation that - obviously - would NEVER exist.
This work, while humorous (in the original form), is superfluous.

Martin, if what you are saying is true then the joke is only funny because some of us thought "out of office autoreply" could create such a loop. How awkward. I propose a revision to the piece: two computers mailing "the recipient's mailbox is full" messages back and forth to each other--that message I know goes out multiple times for each recipient.
Update, 2011: The Rhizome link has been changed to http://rhizome.org/editorial/2008/mar/27/out-of-office-autoreply/ / comment thread
