You'll have to forgive me, as I'm not sure where to start. See, I've never written a journal that I expected people to read. Maybe lab journals, but that's certainly not the same thing.
I guess I should begin with some background. There's no telling who my actual audience is, so I apologize in advance if you already know most of this. I guess in the best-case scenario, I'm being paranoid, there's nothing wrong, and no one will ever read this at all. That would be fantastic.
Okay, here goes. A few years ago, here in the United States, machines were first given rights as citizens. Canada, Japan, and several of the more progressive European nations were quick to follow suit. Robotic technology has come a long way since the turn of the century. In fact, progress has been astonishing in the last decade alone, even to those of us in the field. The major advancement was when the company I work for introduced a new product called NANO-BITS (which stands for Networking Adaptive Nanoscale Organism in a Biologically Inspired Technological System). This product is actually two different systems that symbiotically make up the machine. The NANO part is what I work on, and it comprises a swarm of millions of tiny nanobots that function as a hive mind, working together to control the function of the body. The BITS part is the body, which manipulates the external world and supplies energy to the nanobots. Basically, NANO = brain, BITS = brawn.
