i, robot by Cory Doctorow.

Like so many other young geek sf readers, I read all of Asimov's "Robot" stories. As I grew older, and learned to think thru the implications of things, I started seeing some... problems... with a lot of the sf of my younger years. (Cue my boring rant about how Trek's Federation is totalizing fascist state patterned after the Chinese Empire.)

Cory's story here exposes the world of Asimov's Universal Robots and Mechanical Men for the cruel evil little failed state that it is.

Read it.
