Neal Stephenson's latest.

Neal has done it again.

This time with a little New York Times article called Turn on, Tune In, Veg Out. Think of it as a recruitment poster for the technocratic subculture that was created by a handful of dorks in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Or a rallying cry for computer geeks everywhere.

The article uses the modern Star Wars movies as its foundation. Revenge of the Sith is referenced to illuminate the differences between the first three movies and the most recent three. It does all this in a way that is both unique and cutting. Brilliant stuff.
