Via “Crooked Timber”:http://www.crookedtimber.com/ : Neal Stephenson has set up a “Wiki for Quicksilver”:http://www.metaweb.com/wiki/wiki.phtml. Basically a place for the community at large to provide annotations and background. Cool idea.
The book is out, and all kinds of people are reading it right now, and I’m not because I was stupid and ordered it on Amazon. What was I thinking?
It will be arriving in a box that also contains “What To Expect the First Year”:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0894805770/qid=1064425752/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/002-5302622-9575239?v=glance&s=books&n=507846. Crikey.
UPDATE: Regarding the wiki: look also at Neal’s description of the project, which makes it clear that it’s a little more ambitious than a standard wiki, in some interesting ways.
