RIP, Sylvia Novak, the Instagram influencer who never was.

Sylvia Novak, born this past May from a computer and describing herself as a coffee-operated robot living her best life, died last week at the age of 80.

From a report in Variety on her online life and celebrity:

Sylvia made a lot of friends in that brief window of time, saw a lot of people sliding into her DMs, and experienced everything a woman could in cyberspace, from protestations of love from middle-aged men to innocent requests for boy advice from 13-year-old girls. Much of this surfaced at an emotional online wake for Sylvia, which was held online as part of documentary festival IDFAs new media strand, after Ziv Schneiders art project had its world premiere in the DocLab Competition for Digital Storytelling.
