I'm still reading Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch series, 7 books in now.
The 1999 novel had some internet stuff in it, fun to read 20 years later:
Detective1: It's a hyperlink for a web address.
Detective2: What? English please!

I'm also reading Tim Winton's Eyrie which, after a bumpy start, I like more and more. It's not a sad description of a depressed dropout drinking himself to death.

Then I grabbed a friend's book for a moment and was very intrigued by one of Lester Bangs' articles, The White Noise Supremacists - and how much I see the Internet of the 3rd millenium in it. Things haven't really changed all that much in 40 years. Of course this guy was some sort of avantgarde thinker.
