I think what happened in Matriculated (sp), was not even supposed to take place in the storyline of The Matrix, alot of it didn't make sense. Like how did they know that when they plugged something into the particular place (it looked like a head), how did they know that was where its CPU-type thing was, it could've deep inside it somewhere. I think it was just to make a weird movie about what robot would do inside the constructed matrix like enviroment.

as far as i can tell, in world record the guy accidentally became unplugged (maybe as a result of his running at such a breakneck speed). either as a result of that or the agents, he became a vegetable, but he refused to stay that way because he knew the truth now.
i think. yeah, it was confusing.

just because they wrote it (i think you are reffering to renaisance II) doesn't mean a thing. they still overlooked a major point about the effects of a nuclear bomb. by doing this it allowed them to create their world, but if they had relized it i think the story would be much different. go back and read the posts about the real effect of a nuke.
world record just made no sense. almost less sense than matriculated. who was that guy at the begining? was he his trainer or drug dealer or someone unplugged from the matrix trying to encourage him to realize that he is faster?
Renaissance I and II can’t possibly portray the actual history. I think Ushgarak made that point earlier: They both start by elaborately pulling us into the Zion database archive. We now know that Zion is destroyed at the end of each loop of the Matrix, the One is allowed to chose 23 hapless oblivious humans from the system to be unplugged and together they rebuild the city.
Of course such database stories MUST be there, as every free human is supposed to at least believe that a man was born in the matrix, broke free (or was freed by rebels), and freed the first minds.
I see both short-stories as another stroke of Wachoski Brother genius. The humans are the bad, evil, aggressive, intolerant (insert other synonyms here please) species, that attack and harass the nice, friendly robots and AIs who only after being attacked strike back, and are almost forced, by us, the humans, to use us as a power-source.
As agent Smith says in M1 we wouldn’t accept the perfect world of bliss and happiness, we seem to thrive on misery and pain. Of course we would accept such a horrid story of how mankind fell. Right?
