Perhaps I will write a short piece about an outlaw LibriVox reader. But it will be strictly fictional!!


Ow yeah! Hiro Protagonist always in hot pursuit by black-tied agents from the evil publisher-empire ruling the world. He tries to record whenever he can, wherever he can (with his portable shallenberg zero-noise device). Fleeing, finding cover in a zoo's chimpansee cage. Finally some rest to record the next chapter!
The piece later ends with him recording "End of Chapter. End of.." - then he dies. But before the blackties can do anything, the thing is already fileshared all over the net. They lost and they know it.


Stephan! you are so funny! ROFL!

It's a sure hit!!


As long as Neal Stephanson doesn't sue us for copyright infringement on his character name.

Oh I actually own a copy of In The Beginning... A fine example of reading something on the net, and being so impressed that I went out and bought it. I felt a duty to support someone who would write such a thing! I've also got Snow Crash, The Diamond Age, and Cryptonomicon and have enjoyed them all.

Unfortunately I don't have much time to read these days, so I haven't gotten into any of the newer stuff from the dark prince of hacker fiction.

And I should commend you on the language thing, Stephan. I couldn't even buy a train ticket in German; your English is better than most native-speakers over here! Of course, Americans are notorious for butchering our own language... or at least the language we stole from the Brits!

Chip, I highly recommend the Baroque Cycle books by Stephenson - some of the best fiction I've read in the past few years!!
