A River of Time
The Uplift universe probably inspired Anders when he was setting out the foundations of the OA universe. It had less effect on me, because I'd never read any Brin until well after I joined the project. At one point we wrote to him for permission to use the term Uplift, and he, or rather his agent, advised against it. So we developed the term 'provolve' instead.

Since that time, I've 'friended' him on Facebook, and he is a great bloke; his work on sousveillance and the Fermi Paradox is essential reading. I now prefer the fact that we have our own term for uplift; it makes more sense to me.
