After a long hiatus, I've started up my podcast again with my story Truncat, an indirect sequel to my first novel, Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. Truncat is a parable about warez groups and Napster, about generation war and the trouble with power-laws. In Truncat, the reputation-based Bitchun Society is stagnating, and the birth rate has dropped off so far that only a million kids are alive on the whole planet. These kids have hacked the consciousness-backup system and illicitly copy and load the backups of their elders, treating these backups as a kind of drug.
