Crowd sourcing a novel.

Hello all. I know I have not been an active member of this community but I am currently working my way through from AI to zombies (having been brought over from HPMOR). 

 

I am writing a novel set post Singularity and think that it would be a great idea to collaborate with some of the folks here. It might be useful to try and imagine a friendly AI to work through some of the challenges. 

 

If any one is interested here is the very beginnings of a rough draft.

... I hope I didn't embarace myself too much.

Woops, that doesn't help my credentials as a writer :P

I thought it looked weird but my auto correct didn't catch it.

Don't feel I have the attention span (and/or spoons) right now to actually look through the draft, but I note that you mis-spelled "embarrass" while talking about whether you'd embarrassed yourself, which I thought was kinda funny.

Um, not intending to mock, just coincidental placing of a typo I'm sure
