The data center was located in a series of natural caves somewhere in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. The caves opened up onto a small lake, its permanently frigid water useful as refrigerant. The problematic code came from an obscure sub-agency of…

A short story about how symbols can shift meaning with time...
Jeremy Lichtman originally shared:
 
A crowd had gathered at the entrance to the cavern. Despite the size of the man-made opening, there wasn’t sufficient room for everyone inside, and a sound system and large screens had been set up so that everyone could hear the mayor speak. Many people…

Experimental short story.

Come to Dust (short SF story)

It’s hard to say what the Player and his Men would have thought of the Great Theater on Ephis. The circular stage rose from inky blackness, as if it were poised within the stony vacuum of space. The vast amphitheater, its stage and vast rings of seating…

Food for Thought (short SF story)

“Have you brought our repast?” the cool, mechanical voice issued forth from a wide grid on the wall, below a one-way glass window. “One extra-large pizza, many toppings,” I said. “By the way, you are what you eat.” I’d spent the last few years tempting…

Industry (short SF story about the writing process)

Thirty times per second, the automated writer finishes a new book and sends it off to its automated agent. Thirty times per second, the agent runs a Bayesian filter against the writer’s book, to see if it is likely to sell. Usually the agent sends it back…

Rafe’s empty teacup rose unsteadily from the table, unsupported by any hand, and hurled itself against the refrigerator door with a loud crash. Marie whimpered, but appeared to be too shell-shocked to actually scream. Rafe looked across the table at their…

I was thinking about the old problem of how to warn people not to dig open a nuclear waste repository that may be unsafe for an extremely extended period of time. There’s an article on Slate from 2014 here. The problem has been discussed for years though.…

A little strategic commentary on Twitter.
Jeremy Lichtman originally shared:
 
Blue Bird Got Da Blues (strategy for #Twitter)

In case you haven’t heard yet, Dick Costolo is out as CEO at Twitter. I’m an outsider, so I have no idea whether this is deserved or not, but when analysts question a CEO’s tenure publicly, it can easily undermine their stature to the point where it…
