Plot

The story's narrator is a "logic" much like a computer repairman nicknamed Ducky In the story, a logic whom he names Joe develops some degree of sapience and ambition Joe proceeds to switch around a few relays in "the tank" one of a distributed set of central information repositories, and cross-correlate all information ever assembled – yielding highly unexpected results It then proceeds to freely disseminate all of those results to everyone on demand and simultaneously disabling all of the content-filtering protocols Logics begin offering up unexpected assistance to everyone which includes designing custom chemicals that alleviate inebriation, giving sex advice to small children, and plotting the perfect murder Eventually Ducky "saves the civilization" by locating and turning off the only logic capable of doing this
