Bughouse #13

 13th and last of a short series - the series was done to discover if I could find enough humanity in the main character to sustain the narrative, but unfortunately the character is so scant that I quickly ran out of facets to explore. Putting it more briefly, there’s hardly anything to him, besides only several predictable things. I might keep the title “bughouse blues,” for other stuff. Next time: something else!

Archaic Futurology

…When some of us were younger (25+ years ago) and worked for telephone companies, there arose (or floated down from Above) a “concept” called:

 

NETSYS

 

..a marriage of “network” and “system,” and altogether it was… indistinctly drawn.

 

In the ranks we were just trying to make sure you could call your mother (have you?) but upper levels were wrestling with the advent of the Internet at a time when no one had a clue where it would go.

 

This lack of clues didn’t stop the visionaries from having their visions willy-nilly, and also writing big presentations that were plonked right down on our heads, so we, so, could be confused.

 

Our visionaries thought that your telephone company would bring you the future, and to give you an idea of how impressed I was by all the futurology, here’s a short thing I wrote at the time, which I titled.. “Notsys.”
