The Rise of Siri – startup dystopia novella from Shlok Vaidya

Aaron Ridgeway, Director of Apple’s Security Division, spends most of his time suppressing leaks about iterations of the same old products.

It’s not amazing.

Neither is Apple. Not anymore. Under pressure from dividend-hungry shareholders and a never ending plague of intellectual property lawsuits, radical design has been abandoned for incremental profit.

But when Anonymous brings the global economy to its knees, crippling Apple, Tim Cook rallies his executive team and turns to Ridgeway to help save the company.

Shlok blogs at shloky and is an “entrepreneur without portfolio” and expert in counter-terrorism. I’m looking forward to The Rise of Siri.
