Now I remember! The hacker! Yes. You got some feedback there. Including mine. I think if people told you that "nothing happened" in the hacker introduction it means that the introduction is too forced not flowing enough and leads to a larger story. If you don't have the rest of the story... then nothing happened in my opinion. The hacker came back from the hospital, threw a fit, destroying a top of the line computer in the process, then did her job. If it can be summarized that drolly then nothing happened. If even the dry synopsis written by a realist who has no creativity is compelling because he's summarizing a compelling plot... then you've got a story where something happens. Opening a story with filler (the boring stuff) is I think the mistake you made. Hope this helps.
The pen is only mightier than the sword when the collective draws their swords on reflex to slay the beast described in fiction.
Without support of the masses a writer is the most vulnerable entity of all. He crawls into the shadows of night and returns only at the crack of dawn.

PM me when dawn breaks.
