Story Review: The Omega Upgrade by Raima Larter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really like short stories when they are done well. This one is very well crafted. It was a weekend freebie for kindle download that I saw on Google+. Larter is in my Science On-line Conference circle and I just happened to see her post.
The story revolves around an older person’s view of changing technology. This is something I can relate to as a geezer geek. The feeling that we shouldn’t have to accept all these new fangled devices and networks, but just use what we think is good enough is a feeling I have had at times. That said, I am an early adopter in many things tech, but you never get over the feeling.
Larter has written a fun story with a good bit of wisdom on how people react to constantly changing technology in our lives.
