The Code Challenge

I've been working on a big treasure/puzzle hunt for a BBC show called The Code , a three-part series by Prof. Marcus du Sautoy about maths in the world around us. To win the treasure, you need to be a UK resident over 18 BUT that doesn't mean you can't play the treasure hunt, which is plenty fun and...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hi! I'm Adrian Hon.

Been reading the comics for years and have a copy of the book which serves as a good indicator of coolness among people who recognise it in my flat. Interested in games, SF, futurism, plus I run a games company called Six to Start and do various online things.

Re: The Great Recommendation Thread (Movie, TV, Anime, Carto

Re: Neal Stephenson: Where to start?

I'm not sure I'd recommend Snow Crash either, for the 'bad ending' reasons already mentioned below (I had a strong desire to fling the book out of the window after finishing it, mostly because I'd enjoyed it so much up to that point). Baroque Trilogy is too hard to get in to for many, although it do...

Re: Recommend a book

I was very much taken with Mira Grant's 'Feed', which is a slightly more realistic and scientific take on a post-zombie world. I'm not much of a zombie fan myself, but this did a great job of depicting the sorts of measures a rich country like the US would take after zombies were more or less 'manag...

Re: What is your favourite book?

It changes more or less every other year or so, but: Cryptonomicon (followed closely behind by The Diamond Age in the Stephenson pantheon) The Cyberiad (all of Stanislaw Lem's books are sadly not well-known enough though) The Player of Games (not the 'best' Culture novel but the most readable) The B...
