Forbes.com has published a little Cory Doctorow short story. Do yourselves a favor and read it - it's only 2 pages long.
If you don't know who Cory Doctorow is, he's a futurist science fiction writer. His mystery/sci-fi novel, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is fantastic, as is his collection of short stories, Overclocked. In short, he's just about the best thing going in sci-fi today, in my opinion.
He gets all my whoofie and a bag of chips.
Thanks to Sean over at the nerdalicious I'd Rather Be___ blog for the heads up on the Forbes link!
