Not overly good or bad, I had the exact same thoughts and concerns while reading it that 'MasterReadersBooks' has in their review.

Mostly a 2 star story, but the ending bumps it to 3 stars.

I found it a good sci fi short story and well worth a read, but you see most of it coming.
What was going through my mind was: Why was Joel allowed to keep his communicator at work once the problem with the contract he'd signed was in the open? And why isn't there generally a routine check before he (or anyone for that matter) enters the control rooms of the stuff he carries with him in his pockets, etc.?
Still, I really like the twist at the end.
Good start and I hope there will be more stories to come.

I like it, expected the usual supercomputer story, but got one with an interesting twist.
Perhaps we do not know what is best for our technology.
Keep up good work, will be waiting for more.
