Reading
It looks like Melissa Good is starting to write an original sci-fi story called Partners. Chapter 1 looks pretty good so far; I'm interested to see where she's going to take it. The storyline looks set to be a cross between that AI "awareness" / "consciousness" storyline in Ghost in the Shell and maybe AI-human love (the Aliens storyline) from what I've seen. The last good storyline that I've seen about AI and sci-fi in the past couple of years that's really advanced ideas regarding "the sea of consciousness" was probably Real Drive (Wikipedia article), or RD 潜脳調査室, and that had some pretty epic world building and meta. Don't think this fic will break that meta ceiling but who knows!

Edit: You can get the fansub of the Real Drive series here.

Also: 1st gen E-ink colors appear "a little dull." Looks like it'll be a while before my mythical cheap, accessible, and reliable colored e-ink reader becomes a reality. lol

Master list of Big Bangs. "Big Bangs are a challenge that was developed over the years, it usually brings Authors and Artists together in a fandom to creat a completed, multi-part fic with accompanying art. The art works as a sort of reward for Authors who sign up to write anywhere between 10,000 to 50,000 word stories."
