This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Daemon
Pete Sebeck becomes an astronaut as part of his new identity

According to here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-11511604 one of the test pilots is called Pete Siebold. Hidden in plain sight? High tech, cutting-edge technology? Potential for unprecedented privatized wide-area surveillance? Angel Teeth, anyone? Coincidence? I think not.

The Daemon is closer to being sentient than anyone realises, possibly including Sobol himself

Cracked once compared computer game AI to a kind of flow-chart; it can't handle anything much more sophisticated than "if X happens, do Y". But then, are most living creatures really very different? It's a bit difficult to perform the mirror test on something with no physical body...
