Revisiting Snow Crash

I recently, um, acquired an audiobook reading of Neal Stephenson’s SNOW CRASH and have been listening to it during my commute.  I first read this book, well-known to be the philosophic foundation of SecondLife, in the mid-80’s, when the whole thing was pure fantasy.

Each chapter holds some amazing foresight by Neal.  Today, he introduced an object called Earth which is almost a complete imagination of what we all now know and love as GoogleEarth.

So cool.
