Just read "Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson after about a dozen
recommendations. It is a must-read for all Virions - Stephenson really
"gets" mind viruses and extrapolates a (not too far-off) future in which
they have run rampant AND someone is trying to come up with a killer
designer virus to take over the world. Put that together with a society
in which everyone is a hacker, skateboarding courier, musician, or
pizza-delivery driver and you've got a very entertaining package.

By the way, Amazon.Com books has my book "Virus of the Mind" on sale
