Vernor Vinge Story Excerpt Online
http://www.sfsignal.com/archives/001711.html

Vernor Vinge's next novel is titled Rainbow's End, and IEEE Spectrum has an excerpt online for your reading pleasure. I know what you're thinking, why does a magazine that caters to a bunch of EE hardware geeks run a science fiction story in its pages? Well, apparently the new novel is about a society where computing is ubiquitous (come on Lix!) and people share a consensual reality. The Spectrum is also running a report, called Sensor Nation, about ubiquitous computing and the issues surrounding it. See, there's the connection, and it wasn't that I was claiming EE's don't read anything other than technical manuals, much.
