This is my little love letter to the internet. At times it can be a bit silly, and admittedly I know next to nothing about computer programing or the capabilities of AI. I ask you to forgive my ignorance of these subjects.
But this story is not really about AI, or programming, or even computers themselves. I consider this to be a story about the internet, and its implications for the human race.
This story has not been written by a professional, nor has it been published or edited in any professional way. That said, I worked on this story for several years, writing it, rewriting it, editing it, scrapping it, writing it again, revising, scrapping it, giving up, writing it a third time, and finally revising it and editing it three times over before I was satisfied with the finished product.
So far everyone who has read it has enjoyed it. I've been told that it is "A modern day Frankenstein, with no clear protagonist or antagonist." It has also been described as "Relevant" and "Uses big words" and "You're one fucked up kid, you know that Kyle?".
If you do not like the story, I apologize for wasting your time. However, if you find that you like the story, link your friends to this page! I wrote it for everyone to enjoy. :)
...And if you *really* enjoy the story, you can always buy a copy, and support the author.
