Toner Wars?

And So Begins the Toner WarsIn Neal Stephenson’s SF novel Diamond Age, competing kinds of nanomechanical devices fought against one another. Their tiny diamondoid corpses littered the landscape in the form of a film of black soot. Nanomechs aren’t here today, but it turns out that Internet worms and the machines they control are locked in combat. According to this article, three different breeds of worms are attempting to steal each other’s infected “zombie” machines for their own.

Fun! I have Diamond Age on my "to read" list.

Between the drones and the cyber attacks, it feels like the world is living in a Neal Stephenson novel.

he may be a close winner for science fiction writers of recent years
