Okay, you are falling back on old habits. In the near future, which could be tomorrow or could be next decade, everything has become computerized. This is best shown through the experiences of those who live in the Asian city-state of Sintawan. This should give you a big clue. In this city state, everyone's identity is recorded in a vast computer. Everyone except for those who aren't recorded there and who are using illegal simulated identity implants (sims). To track down these illegals (even though they are probably doing jobs that the legals don't want to do, a young babe bounty hunter combs the city state. Unfortunately, as is often the case in these city states, things are not what they seem and she finds herself the unlikely ally of a police detective. We're not sure why this is unlikely since it seemed to happen with no problem but who are we to say anything about that? Anyway, there is some suspicion that the computer is being perverted for an insidious and deadly purpose. As if this is news? Klaarg could have told them about robots but they probably would not have listened. The tables turn, there is danger around every corner and the city state is on the verge of collapse as unlikely things happen for no apparent reason. Everything resolves in a fairly depressing fashion so you Earthers are bound to love it. Go figure.
