Section 77 is no can can

“Tell me Émile, can you really write an algorithm that can be used as an app to filter nonsense from data keyed into it? And, if you can, what would you charge?”

Jean Luc seemed at ease in conference with this juvenile consultant but Vernon was still acclimatising himself to having a teenage expert in their midst. At least he hoped Émile was an expert.

“So I can write it, if you can conceive of it. If you want me to design the thing from start to finish it will be more and I keep the copyright.” For a moment or two Vernon was tempted. He’d love to inflict the bookish mummy’s boy mathematician and this underage upstart entrepreneur on each other. Like Pilate, wash his hands of the whole sorry affair. He wasn’t sure however what get out clauses there were in the contract he’d signed. He, no doubt, was ultimately liable and Émile might screw the whole thing up letting him carry the can.
