Review: 2019.374 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: I love the way Ardy alternates between keeping the family entertained and trying to protect them.

Con: The whole idea that AI vehicles would be designed to weigh the relative value of different people, with a very heavy weight on money, is just ridiculous. It’s also ridiculous to think people would want to drive around in cars broadcasting “I’m rich!” Beyond that, the idea that this kind of technology will be available in ten more years is also ridiculous.
