Quotes[edit]

"This Snow Crash - what is it? Drug, Virus, or Religion?"
"What's the difference?" - Snow Crash
"The difference between stupid and intelligent people -- and this is true whether or not they are well-educated -- 
is that intelligent people can handle subtlety. They are not baffled by ambiguous or even contradictory situations -- in fact,  
they expect them and are apt to become suspicious when things seem overly straightforward." - The Diamond Age
