Rainbows End

Technology Review takes a break from reviewing technology, and has a crack at science fiction instead. Without too much hyperbole, they accurately sum up Vernor Vinge’s ‘Rainbows End’ and place it in context – although carefully skating around the intended implications of the ‘secure hardware environment’ idea, and what it represents metaphorically. If you have any love for science fiction whatsoever, you really need to read this book.
