No, this isn't a thread for you to reproduce your own short stories (I'm sure there's probably a thread like that elsewhere on the forum) but rather a place to comment on a noteworthy short story that you've just read. Be it noteworthy because it was very good, very interesting or just plain awful, post about it here explaining what was noteworthy about it. --- I'll start with a story called "Anniversay" by Isaac Asimov in 1959. It was in a collection of his called "Asimov's Mysteries". What I found interesting about this story his anticipation of the internet which he calls "The Multivac" (although I may have seen this concept used elsewhere in other stories he wrote). The Multivac is used by the story's characters to find out facts and information much as many people today use the internet to obtain information. There are several major differences of course. People have a Multivac outlet in their house which is essentially just a typewriter and a printer. You type in a question and an answer is printed out. And ofcourse it it a centralised network with a central supercomputer which stores the data and processes the queries. But given this was 1959, I think his errors can be forgiven.
