2011: I write in how countries should start sending ambassadors to Facebook. 2019: Facebook introduces its own currency. 2025: Facebook declares itself soverign, à la ’s fictional Commonwealth corporation?

It's representative of massive American divestment from public infrastructure in general, both the hard stuff (e.g. highways) and the soft stuff (e.g. education).

You'd think so, but many US roads and highways are in terrible shape. Far worse than much of Europe/Asia.

Attention Cumulus fans: You will *love* 's reporting on the real world issues the novel extrapolates. Oakland is a model for surveillance and privacy governance.

: Visiting Europe in 2019 reveals that the US is a failed state where physical and social infrastructure has been steadily degrading since the 1970s. America needs to rediscover what it means to invest in a better future for everyone.

I highly recommend everything by in the near-future-techno-thriller genre. He's nailed the tension between the here-and-now and what is coming in a decade and it will give you chills. Start with the Analog series.
