Justina Robson. Pwnage. (Twelve Tomorrows)

twelvetomorrowsWell-handled story set in the mind of young woman when such minds are more permanently connected to the interwebs. Or, considering the yoof of today are generally online courtesy of a finger tapping at a screen all day long, when minds are biologically connected to the interwebs.

Whilst monitoring the incessant chatter, and seeding misinformation, the better to catch terrorists, the protagonist witnesses a very quick, very very clever financial heist, except no laws are broken, and it’s more of a Robin Hood scenario, with financial institutions well and truly pwned – sadly putting this story into the fantasy genre, as not likely to happen :-(
