“0wnz0red” by Cory Doctorow. “Programmers who hack their own bodies don’t need exercise and never get sick: A new short story from one of science fiction’s bright young stars.”

Cory sez: “This is, AFAIK, the first original fiction Salon’s published […] the first example of a new genre called ‘Nerdc0re’”. Mega props, Cory!

I’ve been writing a short nerdc0re story but I fear it sucks and doesn’t do the tech justice. Unfortunately for me it seems that a short story is the best way to explain it.
