How exactly do people gain social status in snow crash?

Definitely! It's one of those scenes that you read over a few times...or one that you'd like to read over a few times...especially when someone reminds you of it...but you can't re-read it because you can't find the page number in this 887 page tome!!! D'oh!
But seriously, "Who are you talking to?" "I've no idea Wally."

What did you think off the discussion between Daniel,Dappa and Daniels cousin in the KitKat club. I thought it was one of the funniest things I've read in ages.

Finished the System of the World. I decided it was necessary to find as many different Neal Stepheson discussion boards as I could and join them all. After finishing 2500+ pages of one author you get a little lonely when you close that book, so I thought I'd look for fellow readers to celebrate Stephenson's greatness with! Am willing to discuss!

Also, check out the Metaweb or the page "What's Up with Enoch Root" (You will have to google - they won't let me post the link.

That is the question. If you are ambitious, read "The Baroque Cycle". It answers a lot of questions about Enoch Root, but presents even more. Also, you will have to be patient, as it is about 2700 pages.

You are lead to beleive that Enoch dies but read the passage again. Also if you read the Quicksilver / Confusion and System of the World books you'll find that Enoch the Red was alive in the 17th Centuary.

A freind and I were discussing this book and wondered about a particular loose end. How is it that Enoch Root goes from dying on the icy shores of WWII Norway to alive and well, in a jail cell next to Randy Waterhouse some 50 odd years later? We cannot resolve that. Anyone else got ideas?
