Of course, and what's with this 4000 characters left ? LOL
Do i need to write an auto biography on my self before i'm able to make an actual thread - post on this website these days ? They must have huge issues with spam etc.
What books have you read bye the author ? Snow Crash was Neal Stephenson's third novel, published in 1992. Like many of Stephenson's other novels it covers history, linguistics, anthropology, archaeology, religion, computer science, politics, cryptography, memetics, and philosophy What is there not to love about this!

lol lifted from wikipedia eh?

I've read: Snow Crash, Diamond Age, Cryptonomicon (I am actually going to reread it again shortly), I got about 1/3 of the way through Anathem (brain hurt), AND I am currently reading Reamde, 3/4 of the way through.

I read about half of Quicksilver but got sidetracked with a whole heap of other books and studying lol. And I have the other two books in the Baroque Cycle on my shelf.

What about you?

What other authors are you into??

EDIT TO ADD: You need to post I think 20 replies or something before you can post a topic.

What made you come back?

Snowcrash and the Diamond Age are epic novels i've kept and re-read countless times since they were released in the 90's.

Btw, Ever get the feeling were headed for the Snowcrash version of America's future? It's almost prophetic.

Long live Hiroaki Protagonist.

You need to read Zodiac and The Big U.
A Stephenson fan will have the brains to cope in this neighborhood.
Double ply your tinfoil and don't feed the trolls.
Have fun.

I'm hesitant to reply in case you're here to call be back to the beta team. I did my 10-12 years.

But, just in case it's coincidence, welcome to ATS!
