This is the Word — one man’s word, certainly — about the art (and artifice) of the state of our computer-centric existence. And considering that the one man is Neal Stephenson, the hacker Hemingway (Newsweek) — acclaimed novelist, pragmatist, seer, nerd-friendly philosopher, and nationally bestselling author of groundbreaking literary works (Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, etc., etc.) — the word is well worth hearing. Mostly well-reasoned examination and partial rant, Stephenson’s In the Beginning… was the Command Line is a thoughtful, irreverent, hilarious treatise on the cyber-culture past and present on operating system tyrannies and downloaded popular revolutions on the Internet, Disney World, Big Bangs, not to mention the meaning of life itself.
