Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the twenty-first century.

Re-read Snow Crash this weekend, and it is remarkable that it was published *30 years ago* in 1992… sovereign corporations hyperinflation digital currency the metaverse anon avatars memetics linguistic brain viruses … it really has it all.

Snow Crash was a really interesting book! What is your favorite genre to read?

Snow Crash even though I loathe the prose
