What a ridiculous dream.
In a parallel universe, 1914, the World War One didn’t happen, or to be exact, didn’t happen that way. The world was tightly united as one, under the governance of an orgnization called Internet alliance led by a couple of giant companies.Those behemoths were refered to as THE BIG A back then.
As time went by, a few of the leading companies started to invade in each other’s business empire. Tension arose. The politicians relied on the data and algorithms so much that they couldn’t do anything.
Eventually, the alliance was cracked into two camps sending out troops to destroy each other’s data centers. Biplanes were fighting above cities all day, bombing almost everything.
Historians in that universe call it THE TECH IMPLOSION.
