A review by marksutherland
An Aura of Familiarity: Visions from the Coming Age of Networked Matter, by Ramez Naam, Cory Doctorow, Bruce Sterling, Institute for the Future, Warren Ellis, Madeline Ashby, David Pescovitz, Rudy Rucker


What starts as a scene from Cryptonomicon quickly devolves into a Lovecraftian trip infused with the spirit of Gibson. Also bees.

Merged review:

A rumination on the failure modes of networked systems, and how things may die in the future, framed as a short crime tale.
