Anthology- Struggling with this : Robot

“A creation which is built to supersede it’s creator is a dangerous thing.”

One which Doctor Alan Asher failed to realize when he created the first fully functional humanoid robot with an AI brain programmed to assimilate and evolve.

Beta-1 was the first unique creation of its kind, designed to perform far more complex task than a human being and above all, as a result of the corporation’s increasing desire to reduce over head cost and initiate a drive towards 100% efficiency in its industries and technology sectors with an added incentive of low maintenance.
The new advancement had been heralded as the new phase in the technological age which had initially being focused on software and social media platforms. One which world governments had been uncomfortable with for decades but were not entirely able to control. Totalitarian regimes had been the only ones able to stamp out the activist movements and dissemination of strategic and classified information. These new technological advancements had created overnight billionaires and nearly phased out conventional media platforms mercilessly.
A rumored exchange of memos between white house aides in 2019 was to be the catalyst towards that spurred technological industrialists to push for a new grant towards what they termed ‘Production Optimization’. Not necessarily a new term but it served its purpose to blind Labor Unions and activists from the true purpose of this new initiative.

Anthology. Vol. 1: Signal . Change.

Signal the coming of change,

The dawn of answer’s age,

Where have our lies led us,

To no progress but pause,

A stagnation inherited,

A nation dispirited,

Blood flows from river heads,

Children snatched from little beds,

Signal the coming of change,

One man’s vote on the page,

His land’s riches lost to greed,

Yet his need is only to feed,

His fear fed by leader’s inaction

His brother dead, killed in action,

He wishes for no more explosions,

That terror is but just a notion.

Signal the coming of change,

The breaking of chains; bondage,

Dreams of a nation thriving,

Discarding thoughts of merely surviving,

Ending the rot for our children coming,

So that they may find a land belonging,

Signal the coming of change,

oh! let it be all the rage.

Griffin’s Anthology. Vol. 1; Introduction

If you follow me on a regular on twitter or on Instagram you might have stumbled across a post of mine with the same title. It was supposed to be my next big project as a writer and I had so many ideas I was looking forward to trying out. Unfortunately fate had other plans for me. As announced, the series was supposed to debut its first post on the 18th of December then have a post debut each day for the next twelve days till the 30th of December.

I woke up on the 16th feeling both nervous and confident about this project, feeling the creative juices flow ever so fluently like they used to do back when I wrote more frequently. My thoughts for that morning were not so settled per say, as I had just discovered my phone had crashed so imagine my surprise when I discovered my laptop had suffered the same fate.

It really was demoralizing for the next week even after I had the laptop fixed, I could barely even give the poor laptop a look out of fear of trashing it, most of my work lost forever, it just seemed so unfair, but the show must go on and I’m glad to say I’m back to working on Anthology Vol. 1. . This time around I’m taking a totally different approach to each piece and will most likely start dropping them from the 2nd of January 2015.

Griffin’s Anthology Vol. 1 is literally about anything. I’m not going to be doing strictly fiction but I’ll also have a few commentary pieces that will touch on subjects or issues that I feel I must unburden and share with you.

Where are my manners; compliments of the season and I wish you all a most wonderful 2015 ahead.
