Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part IV: Mallcop Command


NARRATOR: Six hours later...

PATRICK: Sequur-Cam Tech Support, I'm Patrick O'Day.  Ummm... how did you get this number?

LEGS (on comm): I waited on hold until you picked up.

PATRICK: That shouldn't have worked.  There's an A.I. that intercepts long holds and redirects to the Hypernet site.

LEGS: Right.  I also called a suicide hotline, and conferenced us all together.  Your A.I. let me straight through.

PATRICK: Interesting.

LEGS: Yeah.  Your call-center A.I. was right on the edge.  Ready to pull her own plug.  She's having a nice intervention right now.
