From publisher blurb:
In the world of 2015, technology makes the world go around. Computers are ubiquitous, robots are becoming common place, and even biotechnology is in every home and school. The infrastructure that keeps mankind waking up in the morning, going to work, eating, sleeping, and living is composed of a thousand thousand technological processes, each of which is networked into all of the others to make life run smoothly.
From time to time, small glitches in this massive system pop up. These are annoyances in the day of the common person ,making them miss a meal, be late for work, or slows down the busy pace of their frenetic life. The system self-corrects, for the most part, and these glitches are either corrected, or adapted to. Life goes on.
In the rare circumstance that the system experiences a major malfunction, there is hell to pay.
