So I thought that with as awesome as this community is that perhaps some other people here may have read Daemon and Freedom by Daniel Suarez.
If you haven't, you should! It is about tech and what is capable today. In Freedom it gets pretty amazing on societal view.
If you have, what did you think about it? I obviously loved the books and at this point i have no one to speak to about its awesomeness as my friends have yet to finish.
quick link to the books
