Quicksilver Metaweb: A while back, William Gibson asked for typo reports for his new book from fans via his blog. Now Neal Stephenson of Cryptonomicon and “Command Line” fame has created a wiki to help readers understand his new novel.
“In our first phase, we are annotating the ideas and historical period explored in Neal Stephenson’s novel Quicksilver, seeding the Metaweb with an initial base of information. “
From what I’ve heard about Stephenson’s books, a wiki may not be enough. A Harvard analysis course may not be enough.
