The title escapes me, but I remember reading a book a while back in which a future, heavily computerized society is on the brink of shutting down due to a digital virus. Before the apocalypse, a company produces a software program that saves the day. They are perceived as heroes. However, by the end of the story we learn that this software company was the entity that created the virus to begin with. Allegorical? Of course. The author, like Ray Bradbury in his book Fahrenheit 451, is definitely trying to tell us something. I guess we’re all have to come to our own conclusions.
