Margaret Atwood is at it again.  Given the Handmaid's Tale-like 
character of America these days, her new book is on my must-read short 
list...  nb, it looks like a technology cautionary tale sort of thing, 
and that's troublesome.  The emergent neo-Luddites may yet cost us the 
Singularity.  But I haven't read this book yet, so I don't know if 
she's verging into that camp or not:

Also, I can't remember if I posted this or not (or if somebody else 
here pointed me at it!  apologies if this is a dupe) but just in case, 
Atwood writes an open letter to America:

Fyi,
