No thread for this guy?
I just blew through "Transmission" and thought it was fantastic. It's the story of a hacker who unleashes a computer virus on the world based on a dancing Bollywood film star, and the impact this has on his life, hers, and others'. There is a subplot involving a super-trendy marketing consultant trying to rebrand the EU Border Patrol which I found especially good.
Think "My Revolutions" sounds even better: http://www.harikunzru.com/archive/novels/revolutions
