An Intriguing Title

Every once in a while, I come up with an idea I'd love to follow through on I do not attempt to put into action.

Although I write articles on science and related topics, I do not kid myself into thinking I am an author. Oh, my writing is not bad, technically. And that is quite important when it comes to writing poems, short stories, and novels. But authoring is more an art than a science.

Two days or so ago, I thought of an amazing theme or title for a story I, myself, should not write. I even suggested it on the social medium, Twitter. What is the title? "The Man Who Downloaded the Internet".

With increasing computer power and speed, stretch your imagination to visualize someone with out-of-the-ordinary gifts deciding to download the entire Internet.

Maybe he would invent his own search engine to surf it, calling it... Giggle.

I'm thinking that downloading the entire internet would be a never-ending project considering that the internet and its contents seems to be expanding at an exponential rate!

That would be interesting. Downloaded it into his own brain or onto a storage item? Before he could use a search engine, he would need to index it first.

Not into his brain. Some electro-tech invention. He would be the ultimate hacker.

Kind of story I would like to read!

Me, too. Also the kind of photoplay I would like to watch!

What do you mean by photoplay? A video? A film?

VinceSummers wrote on April 8, 2020, 7:41 PM

A film.

OK, I have made a start and will publish it as a new article. Is this the kind of thing you meant? Do you want to add to it? Change its direction?

Cool. And you can, if you so desire, include a character, perhaps not believed, who has figured out what's going on and tries to get others to believe him.
