I Listened to an audio book a few years ago. The main plot is humanity sends drone ships out to build gates in star systems then ships can be "beamed" to them using a giant laser. The catch is they still only travel at the speed of light so for them no time has passed but in reality it a been how ever many years it took to get there and then back again. Leads to a heap of time jumps eveytime they come back to earth technology and society has jumped forward. The people that travel this way eventually become known as "skips" for the way they skip though time.
