Hey Everyone!! :-)
I'm back with another peek at what Alyce is up to...and a little food for thought. ;-) Enjoy!
Excerpt from sci-fi satire novel:
"The recording, and the exhibits, are programmed to play in whatever language the closest sentients communicate in. When we entered this room, the station computer noted the language we spoke and responded accordingly."
"So, the computer is always listening?"
He blinked at me. "Of course."
I just shuddered.
He looked at me as if I was insane. "Is this an example of your species' resistance to technology."
I glared at him. "No. It's an example of me not wanting my every word and action recorded so that strangers can listen in later."
"Ah." He waved a tentacle at me. "That is not a concern. No recordings are made, and it is only the computer listening."
"How do you know? Someone could be saving recordings of everything you say and not telling you that's what they are doing."
He stared at me. "You truly are paranoid. Why would anyone do such a thing? Besides, even if someone wanted to, they would be subject to severe penalties under galactic law."
"What if it's your government doing the recording?"
"Do you think the government is not subject to the law? Naturally, if anyone in the government abused their power in such a way, they would be held to account."
"Hmmm…maybe." I shrugged. "It's your risk, I guess."
"There is no risk. Are things so different on your planet?"
