I can’t help but think, ‘this is an important piece of work.’ We have all read about teleportation and have seen plenty of Star-Trek episodes of teleportation in action, but not once were we ever exposed to how that actually might come into being and what telephony would be involved. I completely overlooked this and took it for granted–being a Network Engineer, it was like one of those V8 commercials where I open-palm smacked myself on the forehead.
I loved this book. I thought it was brilliant in plot, characters, tech, and suspense. It gets a little Agatha Christie toward the end, but heck–that’s why it’s called fiction. Still, I think this is an important read for any technologist and I rate this up there with Snow Crash, and Starfish.
