A computer programmer rolling in dotcom money is so moved by 9/11 that he goes to work as a government cyberwarrior.

Logline Sneakers meets GoldenEye

Source of Angst ''He came from a line of people who were way too bright. He had an ability to concentrate and work creatively, and he also had a thorny, geeky isolation.''

Key Concepts Hacking, death rays

Lowdown Cyberfiction legend Sterling takes three lackluster topics -- politics, computers, and geek idealism -- and produces a comedic thriller for the Homeland Security era.
