Ny Science Fiction

Accelerando av Charles Stross:
... In IP geek circles, Manfred is legendary; he's the guy who patented the business practice of moving your e-business somewhere with a slack intellectual property regime in order to evade licensing encumbrances. He's the guy who patented using genetic algorithms to patent everything they can permutate from an initial description of a problem domain – not just a better mousetrap, but the set of all possible better mousetraps. Roughly a third of his inventions are legal, a third are illegal, and the remainder are legal but will become illegal as soon as the legislatosaurus wakes up, smells the coffee, and panics.

... Manfred doesn't believe in Satan, if it wasn't for the dead kittens that someone keeps mailing him.
Virker lovende.

PS: Ennå ikke utgitt på papir
