Description

Plagiarized is a story of how computer technology affects one man's life in 2025. The Des Moines Register reporter Louis Huey arrives at work one morning to find that a major voter fraud story that he had been investigating for weeks had been stolen and published in a sleazy tabloid owned by billionaire media mogul Randolph Knoblock. The most obvious explanation is that his computer had been hacked. But he has not yet written the story, which is stored no place but in his mind. In search of an answer, Huey and his Iowa State University intern, Chloe Robertson, discover that their lives have been transformed without their awareness, so dramatically that they question what it means to be human. This book is a work of fiction. But the technologies in this novel exist today and are being developed in government, university, and private laboratories around the world, often in secrecy. Louis Huey and Chloe Robertson happen to be newspaper reporters, but these technologies will change everyone's life, regardless of who we are in life. Could the events in this novel happen? No doubt in my mind. Have some of these events already happened? Yes. Do we know enough to respond to the many challenges we are soon to face? Absolutely not. As Don Quixote once advised us, "Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory."
