The worst part of reviewing books is trying not to spoil the ever-loving crap out of the plot. Seriously, I was only 100 pages from the end of State Tectonics (the third in the Centenal Cycle by Malka Older) and had no idea what would happen. And I can’t really tell you, because you should totally read this series and I don’t want to ruin it for you.
The sequel to Infomocracy takes us to the margins of the micro-democratic system and of Information’s reach.
In this episode of Science Fiction Double Feature, I talk to Malka Older, author of the science fiction mystery-action-thriller, Infomocracy. We then find out about the state of e-democracy and e-participation with Stefan Strauß from the Institute of Technology Assessment in the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
A smart sci-fi thriller, set in the election year after the world has been divided into micro-democracies. But is the election under threat, and with that threat, the undermining of the entire micro-democracy system?
