Hugo Award, Best Novella, 2002
This short story provides a miniature preview of the story in Rainbows End ... but I recommend you skip it and go directly to the good stuff!
I totally failed to see why this book/novella is so highly thought of and recommended. The entire story is essentially Juan coming to realize what is clear to everyone else - including the reader - from the very beginning. Vinge's vision of the future was nothing special; kids are really smart and get to use neat technology, whoopty do. Even though the story is relatively short, I found it difficult to stay interested though I did, finally, manage my way through it.
