When I first read Rainbows End[^] I considered it about as plausible as the galactic usenet of A Fire Upon the Deep[^]. Unfortunately I'm beginning to think he got it at least half right, with the main difference being that in addition to the corporate microtransaction skim off of everything you do the universal connection/infrastructure will lead to the pervasive surveillance tyranny that he gave as one of the ways advanced civilizations could collapse in A Deepness in the Sky[^].
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
