post-singularity space opera

T. Aubuchon "/:set\AI transmedia"
The list author says: "the traditional space opera we all grew up with in print and screen is little more than an anachronistic fantasy of primitive industrial age technology and culture projected into a future among the stars- these works represent the new breed of space opera- informed by cyberpunk and the internet age- where we see a more realistic vision of technology accelerating in the near future toward a 'Singularity' where humanity transcends the physical universe into limitless immortal Information- where giant metal starships are replaced by nanotech and digital entities riding coherent beams of light between the stars- where concrete and steel cities have collapsed into virtual Edens with variable dimensions- where instead of terraforming worlds to conform to man our decedents adapt themselves to new worlds- and galactic human empires at war with alien hegemonies are nowhere to be found- instead humanity has branched into multitudes of virtual/biological/robotic species and become alien to itself and all of our notions of reality/personhood/gender/society have become incomprehensible-"
