Snow Crash, Vaspars. By Neal Stephenson. Required reading for any true virtual revolutionary.

I’m too busy writing books, to READ any books. No reading is required when one is already a Visionary.
I don’t read books. People write books about me.
Vaspers on February 23rd, 2006 at 11:06 pm
Thus began the quiet little conversation about me, books, my books, my relationship with books, and why I wait so long to publish my books.
So after that blog post exchange of information, them asking me questions, me answering (as usual, with not a drop of help from anyone—and you fucking wonder why I’m ALWAYS in a foul mood?), I got an email from Gene at United Hackers International. He wanted to Skype me and do a podcast of an interview with me for, possibly Tech Central Station, O’Reilly, IBM, or Wiley. I was tired and confused, so I agreed.

Interview with Vaspers the Grate(unabridged, unedited, uncensored)
Gene Schmidgall (UHI): “So tell me Vaspers, why do you blog?”
Vaspers the Grate: “I’m a janitor and cop combined.”
Gene: “That’s funny. What does it mean?”
Vaspers: “The mind of the blogger becomes one with his blog, which is composed not only of words and pictures, but an audience, other minds. The blogger must be a Visionary, and must disguise much of his discourse, lest it fall into the wrong hands. You embed reverse Easter eggs and other pitfalls, so no one can abuse your secrets and use them for harm.”
Gene: “I see…I think. You use so many strange words. I was given a list compiled by your nemesis, Carrie Snell of the popular Om Namaste blog. This she-blogger claims you use the following words, and derivatives, in almost every post: digital effluvium, clinking, ghosting, domination systems, reverse Easter eggs, linkbombs, siglinking, blog scorching, peering through the monkey hole, a slop bucketing with special effects…can you blame anyone for being hesitant to post any comments on your blogs?”
Vaspers: “This interview has now ended.”
Gene: “Yeah, I thought it was going to be this empty and short. Thanks, asshole.”
