Other Notes

I've always been intrigued by the idea of a computer daemon and if their world goes on without us. I remember the character in the Gibson story seemed particularly sad, his laugh so full of irony when asked if time passed for him.

I tried to use the spoken word piece straight-forward but just couldn't in light of the atmosphere. I had to give it an almost EVP quality.
