The follow-up to Delta-V that I read in 2021, a tech thriller by Daniel Suarez that is somewhat predictable, more because of its genre than the story itself. Just having explored the much richer world (and wildly different world) of Cage of Souls this techno-optimist tale felt a bit flat. Some fun exploration of the geopolitics of escaping Earth’s gravity well and using that to contain and reverse climate change. Some interesting thought experiments about DAO’s and blockchain set-ups that you can’t buy yourself into or convert your existing stuff into, to make it stand fully apart from the existing economies, as well as splitting governance and capital fully.
