Okay first, watch this:
Now I just find that scary as hell.
And 30 seconds into watching it, I started envisioning the story ideas. It’s exactly what I needed for the villain in one of my backburner WIPs. Big Brother is scary enough, but the idea that anybody who wants to pay for the software can turn your cell phone into a bug–that’s truly disturbing.
In the meantime, I’m on my way to Savannah for a long weekend.
See. I KNEW there was a reason I, the lone-renegade amongst my peers, don’t own one of these things…They’re evil. EVIL, I say!
Makes for some pretty interesting story ideas though…good luck with your villain. Have fun in Savannah!
