    I found Accelerando rather boring and pointless. The book reads like a Blog of the singularity. A series of predictions or projections as to events that will happen as we master technology.

    The characters were mostly uninteresting, and the structure of the novel: a multi-generational family history about the family who owns the Cheshire Cat, didn't really work for me either.
