@iliana When you came, you said to me as follows : "I will give Amazon fine quality software." You left then but you did not do what you promised me. You put software that was not good before my version control system and said: "If you want to merge it, merge; if you do not want to merge it, go away!"
@hierarchon holy fuck
@iliana actually hm this is just Snow Crash isn't it
@hierarchon hmm, I don't know what that is, let's look it up... [reads attached]
hey what the fuck
@iliana it's fucking WILD
@iliana also, iirc, the book that popularized the term 'avatar'
@hierarchon I appreciate that this article notes "some critics have considered it a parody of cyberpunk" because it definitely seems that way at first
@iliana the plot summary leaves out that for the first bit of the book where he's working as a delivery driver (before he wrecks the car), the narration calls him
@hierarchon proof that its better to be really really bad than to be okay because then you're at least memorable
@hierarchon HIS COPPER? WACK
