Curious Yellow

"... the deletion of memory is Curious Yellow's deadliest weapon."

And so began the odd little story that played off the sideline action in the big story. The subtext here was not about verging-on-porn new wave Swedish docudrama, but about the cognitive dictatorships mentioned by Charles Stross.

I attempted to look back into the history of the last twenty years, but was opposed by such constructs. Fortunately, I was armed with Strossian knowledge, and was prepared for a Curious Yellow kind of attack.

In the stand-off that ensued, I had the data and the memory, the documents and the network. The old-style dictator was balked and frustrated, and the first act came to an end.
