Infomocracy This political thriller encapsulates a lot of interesting ideas but ultimately falls flat. In the world of Infomocracy the non-governmental organisation Information (basically an advanced google that's seen to have a monopoly on information, data and accuracy) has transitioned most of the world away from nation states and into 'micro democracy' where units of 100,000 people vote for governments once every 10 years. The story follows two characters: one a campaigner for a political party and one a high-level worker for Information as a election begins. Unfortunately there is sabotage for the first time, and it seems that the fabric of micro-democracy might be destroyed. I felt a bit let down by this book because it seemed incredibly pro global monopoly of information and information workers. Which I detest, and I felt that the criticism was really conservative (politicians will do anything to stay in power). The IT workers are heroes and the politicians scum bags, but the technology itself and how that warps, shifts and alters things wasn't really expounded upon and that just can't fly - a technological shift like that would be huge and there would be massive push back and difference, I think anyway. Plus I hate technology's increasing role in our lives so I'm a bit of a curmudgeon.
