A Logic Named Joe by Murray Leinster:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

This story is a lot of fun to read; it also tells you, in outline, how to set up the Internet. What would you do if a computer started using all of the information available to solve any problem a human posed?


('A Logic Named Joe' by Will F. Jenkins [Murray Leinster])

I'd also note that Leinster used the pseudonym 'Will F. Jenkins' for this story. Select an invention:
