In TVP, several of the characters ara seen communicating soundlessly via their wetware. We'd seen Admin people do that via touch communication in the previous book, but now we see SysGov contact-free communication.

What I found interesting is how the dialogue is described in the text: using angle brackets <>.

The Valkyrie Protocol, chapter sixteen wrote:<This is our first appearance, so let's make sure we do well.> she told him silently.

Which is the same way that David denotes treecat communication in the Honorverse. Could this be a foreshadowing of future times to come? A SysGov-wetware-enabled treecat?

Anyway, I'm confident we'll get this kind of communication by the end of this century. No need to wait for the 29th or 30th.
