I didn't think _Earth_ was one of Brin's better books, at least back
I was more focused on its merits as a novel, though, than on its
near-future predictions. I may also have been less impressed by
Brin's predictions about the Internet than some as I was already
using the Internet in 1992 (when I read _Earth_) and even in 1990
(when it was published).
