I'm a big Neal Stephenson fan (not so much the recent historical stuff, but otherwise) and he writes in depth about technological or systematic things. I think his nonfiction essays are even better. See for instance these two excellent pieces:
Mother Earth, Motherboard
In the Kingdom of Mao Bell
But this kind of geek writing is found in relatively few places. Wired is one. Can anyone point me to other writers who write about similarly techy topics? To be clear, I don't merely mean computer things, anything where a complex system is discussed in an interesting way.
