The hardcopy magazine has an article following the story, "Mike Villa's
World" by Harry Goldstein, which mentions that the story "Synthetic
Serendiptiy" was adapted for IEEE Spectrum magazine from his upcoming novel,
Rainbows End. The article is a very interesting examination of the
technology in Vinge's near future world, well worth tracking down.
