Looking for Good and Recent Sci-Fi Books
Karl Schroeder has inspired several aspects of the OA scenario. The Beamrider Network is at least partly based on his work, and the Snarks are inspired by his novel Permanence. Schroeder's Sun of Suns appears to have at least partly inspired the Gravity Balloon concept, which I intend to add to the scenario at some point, if no-one else does it first.

I'm not sure that Lockstep is as practical as some of his other work - there seems to be little advantage to this use of cryosleep, but perhaps something similar might be useful.
