One of Time’s 100 best English-language novels • A mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous—you’ll recognize it immediately Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison—a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age. In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo’s CosoNostra Pizza Inc., but in the Metaverse he’s a warrior prince. Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus that’s striking down hackers everywhere, he races along the neon-lit streets on a search-and-destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse. Praise for Snow Crash “[Snow Crash is] a cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon’s Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole.”—The San Francisco Bay Guardian “Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the twenty-first century.”—William Gibson “Brilliantly realized . . . Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow.”—The New York Times Book Review

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Snow Crash is Neal Stephenson's third novel, published in 1992. Like many of Stephenson's other novels it references history, linguistics, anthropology, archaeology, religion, computer science, politics, cryptography, and philosophy. Stephenson explained the title of the novel in his 1999 essay In the Beginning... was the Command Line as his term for a particular software failure mode on the early Apple Macintosh computer. Stephenson wrote about the Macintosh that "When the computer crashed and wrote gibberish into the bitmap, the result was something that looked vaguely like static on a broken television set - a 'Snow crash'." Snow Crash was nominated for both the British Science Fiction Award in 1993, and the Arthur C. Clarke Award in 1994.

«‹Vineland› ist vermutlich das zugänglichste Buch, das der große Unbekannte je geschrieben hat.

Der Mond explodierte ohne Vorwarnung und ohne erkennbaren Grund. Die Uhrzeit würde man später als A+0.0.0 oder schlicht Null bezeichnen ... 05:03:12 Weltzeit. Die Stunde Null. Nach der Explosion des Mondes wütet über Jahrtausende ein Meteoritensturm, der die Erdoberfläche in eine unbewohnbare Wüstenei verwandelt. Um die Menschheit vor der Auslöschung zu bewahren, schickten die Nationen der Erde eine Flotte von Archen ins All. Der Asteroid Amalthea, der ursprünglich zu Forschungszwecken an eine internationale Raumstation angedockt worden war, soll der Kolonie als Schutzschild dienen. Doch das Leben im Weltraum fordert einen hohen Tribut, und die meisten Menschen sterben, bis schließlich nur noch sieben Frauen übrig sind, um eine neue Zivilisation zu begründen. 5000 Jahre später existieren zwei Völker: die Nachfahren derer, die die Katastrophe auf der Erde überlebt haben, sind primitive Siedler; die sieben Stämme der Nachkommen der Sieben Evas von der Raumstation hingegen hochkultiviert — und sie machen sich auf, die Erde zu kolonialisieren ...

"Snow Crash was written by Neal Stephenson and published in 1992. The novel touches upon the topics of technology, information, computer science, and philosophy. The main character, appropriately named Hiro Protagonist, delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo's Cosa Nostra Pizza Inc., but in the Metaverse (Virtual Reality Network) he's a katana wielding warrior. Hiro gets involved with the enigma of a new computer virus that's infecting hackers everywhere. He navigates the neon-lit streets with a mission of locating and neutralizing a new villain who is trying to bring forth the Infocalypse. Neal Stephenson paints a vivid world filled with astonishing multifaceted characters, diverse city states and uncanny descriptions of future technology and global networking. For instance a Google Earth-like system was described in great detail with remarkably similar functionality to that common piece of software we use to find directions, discover new places and enjoy high resolution aerial images. Snow Crash also addresses the issues of linguistics, history, religion as well as politics, which are tremendously interesting and compelling, however not as suited to my direction in this particular project. For the purposes of my industrial design thesis I had focused on the development of the technology that was described in the novel. Neal Stephenson provides rather detailed function and use scenarios of these systems in the book. I chose to focus on certain items described in greater detail since they would hold a great amount of viewer interest in either a feature film or a video game, while maintaining a style and visual aspects a modern consumer of entertainment expects."--Abstract.

Excerpt: The following is a list of works commonly ascribed to the cyberpunk genre of science fiction. While some of these works-such as Neuromancer and Blade Runner-have become accepted as archetypal examples of cyberpunk, the classification of others can be debated. Furthermore, works published after 1993 are increasingly likely to be labeled "postcyberpunk," a term first applied to Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash. Consequently, all categorizations are likely to be incomplete, contested or provisional. Several observers, including the SF writer David Brin, have commented that cyberpunk was not as original as the genre's boosters once claimed. Such works as Fritz Lang's movie Metropolis (1927) contain elements that a 21st-century viewer might call "cyberpunk," even though they predate the cyberpunk canon by many years. These works could be labeled cyberpunk's "precursors," but a causal connection is not always clear.

The increasing diversity of Infonnation Communication Technologies and their equally diverse range of uses in personal, professional and official capacities raise challenging questions of identity in a variety of contexts. Each communication exchange contains an identifier which may, or may not, be intended by the parties involved. What constitutes an identity, how do new technologies affect identity, how do we manage identities in a globally networked infonnation society? th th From the 6 to the 10 August 2007, IFIP (International Federation for Infonnation Processing) working groups 9. 2 (Social Accountability), 9. 6/11. 7 (IT rd Misuse and the Law) and 11. 6 (Identity Management) hold their 3 Intemational Summer School on "The Future of Identity in the Infonnation Society" in cooperation with the EU Network of Excellence FIDIS at Karlstad University. The Summer School addressed the theme of Identity Management in relation to current and future technologies in a variety of contexts. The aim of the IFIP summer schools has been to introduce participants to the social implications of Infonnation Technology through the process of infonned discussion. Following the holistic approach advocated by the involved IFIP working groups, a diverse group of participants ranging from young doctoral students to leading researchers in the field were encouraged to engage in discussion, dialogue and debate in an infonnal and supportive setting. The interdisciplinary, and intemational, emphasis of the Summer School allowed for a broader understanding of the issues in the technical and social spheres.

Addressing a key issue related to human nature, this book argues that the first-person experience of pure consciousness may soon be under threat from posthuman biotechnology. In exploiting the mind's capacity for instrumental behavior, posthumanists seek to extend human experience by physically projecting the mind outward through the continuity of thought and the material world, as through telepresence and other forms of prosthetic enhancements. Posthumanism envisions a biology/machine symbiosis that will promote this extension, arguably at the expense of the natural tendency of the mind to move toward pure consciousness. As each chapter of this book contends, by forcibly overextending and thus jeopardizing the neurophysiology of consciousness, the posthuman condition could in the long term undermine human nature, defined as the effortless capacity for transcending the mind's conceptual content.Presented here for the first time, the essential argument of this book is more than a warning; it gives a direction: far better to practice patience and develop pure consciousness and evolve into a higher human being than to fall prey to the Faustian temptations of biotechnological power. As argued throughout the book, each person must choose for him or herself between the technological extension of physical experience through mind, body and world on the one hand, and the natural powers of human consciousness on the other as a means to realize their ultimate vision.
