The New World Order
Six Years In
The Software consortium is bought by venture capitalists. Little Davey comes up with a new software idea, but since Vickey the Venture Capitalist didn't like him in undergraduate education, she blocks his sfotware from entering the consortium. Davey has no way to sell his software, except on the open market, but no one buys from there anymore. or Maybe Davey is writing software that competes with Minisoft, the largest and most powerful software company ever created. Minisoft's director decides that he will withdraw his software from the consortium unless Davey is prevented from partaking in the consortium...
Lastly, since no one is building software from the ground up, very little innovation is made. While every single program shares an easy to use interface, no one risks creating a new, possibly better interface since they don't need to.
