In the blossoming dystopia of Alamo City, genetic modification is banned. Enterprising biohackers are beginning to sneak valuable data the old-fashioned way—on any vintage memory cards and drives they can get their hands on.

All they need to do is successfully biohack a killer parasite and also catch a human to test it on.
GLOWING SURF: a neon, visually disorienting phenomenon that can occur when many electronic and memory-filled devices come into close physical contact, particularly in bodies of water polluted by isotopes and synthetic organisms. see also: Tamagotchi, phosphorous-32, VirtualBoy, Baker’s yeast
