This book, by the well known blogger, techie, and SF author Cory Doctorow, is a look at a possible near future. The main character is a new type of industrial saboteur. He’s not dedicated to harming his company’s competition; his goal is to hamper another “Tribe”.
The books description has more detail:” Instant wireless communication puts everyone in touch with everyone else, twenty-four hours a day. But one thing hasn’t changed: the need for sleep. The world is slowly splintering into Tribes held together by a common time zone, less than family and more than nations. Art is working to humiliate the Greenwich Mean Tribe to the benefit of his own people. But in a world without boundaries, nothing can be taken for granted-not happiness, not money, and most certainly not love.”
