Killer app

Out of ideas for mash-ups or the next big thing?

For the A-Z Challenge I'm posting 26 suggestions for new genres. How serious each is I leave you to decide; I have my eye firmly on this debate.

Killer app

A programming procedural on the hunt for a deadly, resourceful and perhaps self-aware piece of software or item of consumer electronics. The creation itself may be emergent homebrew or cutting-edge tech born in a vacuum of deep lobbying and total promotion, with its official pursuers likely hindered by specialisation, self-confidence and personal failings. The whole is a thought experiment in noötranshumanism, its themes including Anglo-Saxon economics, big silicon, symbiogenesis and self-annihilation. You could think of it as the Gaia principle meets The Silence of the Lambs meets The IT Crowd.
