I got this softcover at Barnes and Noble; looks like a genre-bending approaching-apocalypse cyberpunk magic-vs-tech story - um, with some romance? {grin}

Later: Yep, that's it, with lots of levels of detail. We first meet Patricia and Laurence in their respective childhoods; she rescues an injured bird, finds that she has "witch" abilities and can talk with it, and makes a bargain with the Parliament of Birds regarding the "endless question". Laurence, a loner at school, has invented a very-short-term yet effective time machine, and earns an introduction to a group of like-minded techno-nerds with amazing plans.

When the two grow up, their paths cross - during a growing conflict between magic and science that might unmake the planet. Intriguing genre-mashup here!

I left this book, bagged against the elements, on a bench on the walking trail at Muldoon Park just off Mammoth Rd; hope the finder enjoys it!
