Six short stories, I had never heard of Doctorow but this was pretty cool. Two stories were dull/pointless--I, Rowboat and Printjob (or whatever the first one was called). The other 4 were all great stories and in fact reflected a great variety. Anda's Game I thought was very creative; I,Robot moved at a great pace; the one about the seige started kind of slowed, but the last 20 installments--I just kept clicking "send next installment immediately." Would like to have had the book copy for my recent trip.
I'm enjoying this- I think. I had a username/password issue and got paranoid in the middle of it. So the story's kept me going. I keep waiting to find out that the 'crisis' is really a mediated cyberscam. Having last been a sysadmin back in the Novell 3 days, I can identify some of the characters.
