I'll admit, I'm a total sucker for weapon/armor shopping when it comes to tabletop RPGs, and my group is the same: they love perusing the gear lists and kitting themselves out. This is something that, especially with the thoroughly fluffed nature of so much of the rest of the setting, always seems like an odd incongruity to me.

Nice to know I'm not the only aspiring writer here :P

This is a really good point. In past games I've explained the *inner* system's use of infugees by pointing out that there are really hard limits on AGIs after the fall, so indentured infomorphs are in high demand for analytical work, "soft skills" work that simple AIs still have some rough edges with, etc. It's not perfect, though, and i too would love to see some canon fluff around this kind of stuff!

We don't have writers for YWM yet, as we'll be doing an open call. But we have a contracting and production schedule worked out so an entire Series is produced at once, and then released according to schedule.

It depends what ALIs, like your muse, are. They aren't sapient. Though they can take Mental Stress. So they are capable of some limited empathy. This is also reenforce with them being able to act as your Pychologist.
But they must fail one of the AGI tests. I think its fair that they pass the Turing Test.
But they probably fail The Coffee Test, the College Test and the Employment Test.
In real life, there are jobs which are known collectiveably as HITs, or Human Intelegenc Tasks. These things are refining search engine results, or they work as final answer arbiter for things like siri. I dont know if Siri or Cortanna employ HITs. But other services like them do.
