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

4.0

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.
