In the Beginning...Was the Command Line

In the Beginning…Was the Command Line by Neal Stephenson
English | October 13th, 2009 | ISBN: 0380815931 | 160 Pages | EPUB | 0.23 MB

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.
