Stross, Charles -- Accelerando

I actually just finished this in December, despite having bought it in July. Fix-up of a sequence of short stories from across the Singularity -- and the author doesn't duck the issue, either. This was what Schroeder was trying to do. Information goes everywhere, social conventions turn upside down, corporations and lawsuits turn sentient and start having arguments with irate Ponzi schemes. Despite the title, the narrative rate-of-change stays fairly constant -- we stick with human protagonists even after humanity has become a sidethought in the Solar System. And despite Scalzi, I think this would be a fine first novel to hand to an SF-non-reader (as long as he was modern-tech literate. Ok, a computer geek.) (However, the big finish was unconvincing.)
