(1968) by Phillip K.

Foreman had always regarded space travel as a dangerous business, but he had no idea just how dangerous. Although the "self-important rhetoric and whines of persecution" on the part of cyberpunk fans were irritating at worst and humorous at best, Brin declares that the "rebels did shake things up. He has been right about a great deal, but mainly about the shape of the internet and how it filters down to the lowest strata of society.
