Kim Stanley Robinson and the networked frontier

This piece of mine came out in a collection of essays on California science fiction:

I've always found him good to think with--his recent stuff, especially, which has this thoughtful open-endedness that I find particularly inviting.  An odd parallel: Le Guin's work is similarly trending towards ambiguity.
