A successful hi-tech speculator learns first-hand that technological progress has a dark side: though it builds, it can also destroy in an instant.

"We were all about new-tech, looking at anything that was different... Computer processing was the buzz word, but conventional processors were obsolete; they'd run their course. We'd seen them pretty much max out on the macro-scale and they sure as hell had nowhere to go in miniaturization. Moore's Law hadn't just hit the wall, it had slammed head first into it, and its brains were oozing out all over the motherboard... Even subatomic circuitry and photonic processors had become commodity items by then. China was exporting about a trillion units a year, manufacturing twice that many. But the world kept demanding faster, better. More. We were depleting resources faster than we could mine them just to manufacture what was no longer keeping up."

After recovering from the shock of waking up in an alternative reality, he'll blindly do anything necessary to keep this new fragile existence from shattering.

Anything.
