PostsingularBook - 2007
"It all begins the year after tomorrow in California. A maladjusted computer industry billionaire and a somewhat crazy U.S. president initiate a radical transformation of the planet through sentient nanotechnology (the equivalent of biological artificial intelligence). At first they succeed, but their plans are reversed by Chu, an autistic boy who saves the world." "The next time it isn't so easy to stop them. Most of the story takes place in a world after a heretofore unimaginable transformation, where all the things look the same but all the people are different (they're able to read one another's minds, for starters). Travel to and from other nearby worlds in the quantum universe is possible, so now our world is visited by giant humanoids from another quantum universe, and some of them mean to tidy up the mess we've made. Or maybe just run things."--BOOK JACKET.
