Justin Hathaway was used to ignoring the targeted ads that popped up in his Faciadio social network and email viewer, but he could not ignore one that suddenly appeared as he tangled with a swarm of cyborg skull-drilling brain parasites in Eternal Dimensions. He paused the virtual reality game and read the ad: "Do you want to join the Singularity? Merge with the immortal hive mind and transcend the ordinary. Click now!"
He took off his VR headset and looked around the living room where cold pizza lay in a box on the coffee table. For years he had wracked his brain to conceive some insanely great deep machine-learning start-up idea that would deliver him wealth and popularity, but it simply never came to mind. Maybe the long-hyped Singularity really was about to begin, and maybe he could take some genius ideas from it to fulfill his real destiny as a high-tech CEO.
