The Diamond Age had its moments, but other things about it annoyed me.For example, they can do all kinds of wonderful nanotechnological things, but (for plot purposes) computers are unable to do a good job of reproducing natural human speech. Oh brother! That has to rank up there with the Heinlein novel where the spaceships jump through space faster than light, but (for plot purposes) you have to convert decimal numbers into binary before they can be entered into the navigation computer.
