Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

The internet, those start ups, as we know them, originate here

Wow. What a book. Izzy recommended this book in a post and I thought, why not. Published in 1992(!!!) this book is probably the reason why we have Second Life, Bitcoin, Uber and Airbnb today and will probably have travel pods soon, thanks to Elon Musk.

Among other things, the book also touches upon anthropology, religion and ancient civilisations and also tells us how the term “babbling” originated. Who knew the Tower of Babel had something to do with this?

Loved the book, wish I had read it in 1992 itself. 25 years too late, but then better now than later! 9/10. Buy it here.
