Neal Stephenson and the book Quicksilver

Neal Stephenson, one of my favorite fiction writers, came by campus today as part of promoting his new book (released… today!). He did an interesting presentation that sort of gave background to the thinkings of one of his book characters. He’s going back to the original hackers: 17th century style. Looks like some of the characters have the same surnames as the excellent Cryptonomicon, so there’s a thread continuing there.
