Too Geeky for Its Own Good? - 4/3/2006 - Publishers Weekly

A discussion of the New York Times Book Review SF column - Publishers Weekly.

A Review of 'Accelerando'

The Pinocchio Theory: Accelerando - Charles Stross‘ Accelerando (available for free download here) is a science fiction novel about the Singularity, the hypothesized point when radical increases in computing power — expressed both in neurological enhancements to our brains, and in the development of autonomous artificial intelligences — lead to an absolute discontinuity in history (the word was first used in this sense, as far as I know, by Vernor Vinge).
