Hey, it's HighScalability time


View of the total solar eclipse from a hill top near Madras Oregon, August 21, 2017. As totality approaches, dragons gorge on sun flesh; darkness cleaves the day; a chill chases away the heat; all becomes still. Contact made! Diamonds glitter; beads sparkle; shadow band snakes slither across pale dust; moon shadow races across the valley, devouring all in wonder. Inside a circle of standing stones, obsidian knives slash and stab. Sacrifices offered, dragons take flight. In awe we behold the returning of the light.

Hey, just letting you know I've written a novella: The Strange Trial of Ciri: The First Sentient AI. It explores the idea of how a sentient AI might arise as ripped from the headlines deep learning techniques are applied to large social networks. Anyway, I like the story. If you do too please consider giving it a review on Amazon. Thanks for your support!
