"Cat Pictures Please" by Naomi Kritzer

A short story about a benevolent AI (Google?) who tries to help people who have posted good cat pictures. (And why not? After all, the Internet runs on cat pictures.)

 

It's always nice to find another "benevolent AI" story, although I winced at the idea of arranging things so that

the gay pastor would be outed for his own good.

(show spoiler)

And Bethany's rapidly worsening situation made me feel a little panicky.

 

This is terribly obvious, but I can't resist: Don't be evil, Google.
