OK... who else read this?
I thought it was a great book... however, I thought things were just to easy for the Verdant people.
Also, I thought the whole "data chip" thing was a bit 2002. Um, even in 2009 every computer in the world is connected to every other one. Carrying around files on a data chip sounds so 1990's sneaker net'ish.
Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence.
