Mini Review: Diamond Age

Neal Stephenson: Diamond Age - Amazing story of a future of nanotech, post-geographical identity through self-selecting cultural/linguistic enclaves preserving "superior" cultures while the masses devolve into consumption, illiteracy and violence. This book about the power of narrative itself to shape imagination and building a giant underwater supercomputer composed of human minds spreading information via nano-machine viruses. Big ideas nestled in human scale drama.
