From Cory Doctorow's piece, Skynet Ascendant:
We humans are the inconvenient gut-flora of the corporation. They aren’t hostile to us. They aren’t sympathetic to us. Just as every human carries a hundred times more non-human cells in her gut than she has in the rest of her body, every corporation is made up of many separate living creatures that it relies upon for its survival, but which are fundamentally interchangeable and disposable for its purposes. Just as you view stray gut-flora that attacks you as a pathogen and fight it off with antibiotics, corporations attack their human adversaries with an impersonal viciousness that is all the more terrifying for its lack of any emotional heat.
Add the Matrix to Skynet. Picture a sea of office workers, albeit working from home (save money on office space, time commuting). Wearing their oculus rifts (can be anywhere and with anyone without having to expend calories), using mind-control interfaces (once again, save calories), drinking Soylent (why waste time eating), and using a catheter (why waste time going to the bathroom). Efficiency bliss.
