Matrix

Coisas que eu encontro pelo mais puro acaso. À procura de inspiração visual nas cidades representadas em capas de livros de FC e deparo-me com isto: Matrix. E note-se o their lives were controlled by the mother computer complex. O nome e a premissa fazem lembrar um certo filme. Um pulinho à Amazon (também conhecida como loja do vício, entupidora de caixas de correio e aniquiladora de contas bancárias) aguçou a curiosidade: The machines monitored every facet of human life, and ALWAYS made the correct decisions. Yet, there was Joe Dill, Administraator of the Citizen's Resettlement Bureau. Joe was obviously some kind of maverick. In fact, anyone less suited for the job he held could hardly have been found - - which only proved something he had long suspected; to wit., that the machines which had monitored his whole life and which had passed him for the job were not all that efficient. ~ ~~ ~ Not only that, some of the decisions they were now making were downright absurd - and worse, inhumanly cruel. And there were so many of them. Could they ALL be mistakes?. Não será um clássico da FC, mas fiquei muito curioso em ler este livro e perceber potenciais ligações com aquele filme que mistura porrada hollywoodesca com pós-modernismo baudrillardiano que até tem o mesmo nome.
