Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, the Freitas books are not in-stock at online bookstores, new or used, and I couldn't afford them if they were. I guess I'll be reading them on my computer screen. Steve Jurvetson has a great photo on his blog of the books he is currently reading

I'm still open to suggestions, so keep'em coming.

For people who would rather make a start with fiction:

Neal Stephenson
- Diamond Age
- Snow Crash

Tom Craver

For fiction - I just finished Newton's Wake by Ken MacLeod (featuring "drexlers" - nanofactories - and a look at an "abundance" society). Pretty good, lives up to the subtitle "A Space Opera" - i.e. a starships and ray guns science fiction romp.

Next on my light holiday reading - Accelerando, which I started reading online.

I've got "The Singularity is Near" on hold at the library - not sure if I'll buy it, but the holds list is pretty long, so maybe.

Miron

Here's some fiction I recommend:

- Charles Stross "Accelerando". A pretty good guess at how the near-term future will happen.

- Greg Egan "Axiomatic". Greg may be the best contemporary sci-fi thinker. Short stories collection. Permutation City is also very good.

- Karl Schroeder "Ventus". Very advanced distributed system indistinguishable from prevasive magic. Somewhat flawed.

- Rheingold "Smart Mobs". non-fiction.

- Wright "the Golden Age" mid future, very thoughtful.
