It was a world wherein there was a brain-implant which allowed people to snapshot, transfer and interpret partial mind-states as unaugmented humans use words.
The actual story was about a detective investigating the murder of a poet and and advocate of this technology who was evidently killed (a heart attack triggered by the augmentation releasing adrenaline) through her augmentation.
The murder was perpetrated by an organization who are motivated by what this augmentation does when implanted in children at a young age, and left to affect their development: a little girl of eight is shown being "super-sane" to almost cynical extent, tossing aside patriotism and other conventionally motivating causes, in favour of a form of intellectual enlightenment.
The government is trying to stop the augmentation from becoming popular because of it.
The detective eventually realises, or is convinced, that they are out of their league and leaves the case.
I have lost both author, title and even the name of the augmentation, so Google is proving uncooperative.
ETA: The story was in English, it was available in full text on a static-content web-page, I read it between one and three years ago.
