by M. N. Rosen

In the suburbs of near-future London, two childhood friends discuss the creation of a technology company that elevates awareness and well-being. What begins in a garage grows into a ubiquitous enterprise that changes what it means to be alive.

The second founder’s desire to be desired grew out of a fragile psychological constitution and a more fundamental desire to be thought of positively by everyone and every thing. An indifferent or unfriendly contemporary, a colleague of his mother, identified by his father as not many meshuga nuts short of a fruit cake, and an artificial intelligence-powered speaker were all equally important.
