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).
