Well written, and for the avid scifi fan, not hard to follow the "sciences" of the future.
I found the idea of an AI Meritocracy quite fascinating. Some primal part of me still shivers at the though of AI's being in control and seeing how it works out piqued my interested.
The raw amount of action was welcome. You didn't find characters waxing philosophical for pages and pages and pages. Maybe a paragraph or two? Quite handle-able.
Looking forward to more of this series.
