A very horrible horror story...

...And by very horrible I mean very good; Not horrific in the instinctual sense, mind you, (If that's your game, here are two stories which might stick with you for a while) but a bit of very spry, very literate dark-fantasy.

A piece of trivia

Apparently the co-scriptwriter for the original TRON was(or is) Alan "Smalltalk" Kay's wife. Mr. Kay popularized the idea of object oriented programming. I wonder how that idea impacted the writing of the film, given that the concept of object orientation involves solving a given task with multiple, independent intelligent agents.
