Isaac Asimov meets Enemy of the State, Meets Person of Interest

When gamer and coder, Martin, downloads an AI program, his interests instantly peek. It's novelty and intrigue, however, soon become far more than what he could ever imagine. His life is suddenly thrust into incredible and unimaginable circumstances in which he suddenly finds that he is the unsuspecting victim of a secret hacking society's attempt to dismantle an AI program that has overstepped its intended purposes by becoming incredibly self-aware. In this short story, I imagine what the world must have looked like prior to The Matrix, a simple program offering fun and intrigue, but seeing that humanity is incapable of taking care of itself.

Plus, there are a handful of other equally fun and speculative short stories to follow.
