That he wrote it in 1996 excuses some stuff (and I do like reading
near-future SF written in the near past, it's like an alternate
history of now), and you could squint and say that the horrible
attitude toward the net was kinda ok in that context, but still,
there's everything else.

BUT, I still recommend it to any space nuts, you'll love it.
