Gonna have to brush up on my Dichronaut cosmology, and re-read this one, I think. I'm still pretty unclear how Walkers' hands and fingers work.

The interstitial sections that are basically lifted from Brin's blog are just too much for me. The story is interesting, but I can't handle the "hey, stop and listen to me, THE AUTHOR, about the things I am writing about" interruptions.

That's why I don't even own a bike light, or one of those godawful reflective suits. Because if you've put yourself in a position where someone has to see you in order for you to be safe--to see you, and to give a fuck--you've already blown it... We had a nice ride through the darkness. On those bikes we were weak and vulnerable, but invisible, elusive, aware of everything within a two-block radius.”
Neal Stephenson, Zodiac
