I just read a dualogy by Daniel Suarez that might be of interest to some of you. Basically a highly sophisticated botnet takes over the world and turns it into sort of a living MMOG. Members of the darknet use a digital currency that quickly outpaces the dollar and interact with each other (and various aspects of the world at large) using augmented reality displays in their glasses. I found some of the concepts interesting, so I thought some of you might want to check it out. It gets pretty graphic, so consider yourself warned. The first book is titled Daemon, the second is Freedom (tm).

Great books.  Check out this presentation by the author, too:
