Daemon. By Daniel Suarez.
Interesting so far but it seems tech’d-up.
All the techno babble is ok but nobody looks at hardware and says “it has a TCP/IP stack that enables to to interact with IP networks over this cat5 cable”. Either the people you’re talking to know what you’re talking about and you’d just say talk about a network interface & cable. Or they don’t and then they would understand even less of what your saying than without those words.
So it’s just technical correct verbosity to up the tech appeal and credibility for non tech people.
(Originally a Goodreads update but apparently those are limited to 420 characters. And that’s a weird short limit for a site about books.)
