Nathan greg egan's _diaspora_ is quite similar.

Jayesh I'll check it out next. The thing is there are so many books to read and so little time. Sigh...
By the way how would you compare it to Permutation City by the same author?


Nathan permutation city is about a single idea, and while some other ideas play a part in PC (the insects, for instance) it's really just the two parts: before launch and after. diaspora is more like accelerando in that it takes place over a longer period of time and contains many parts, each of which has distinct world building that would suffice as the setting of an entire novel.
