Snow Crash Chapter 8

By Neal Stephenson

Chapter 8

  • Based on all this, Hiro realizes that it's ironic for Juanita to visit the Metaverse in a crummy black and white avatar with limited facial expressions.
  • Hiro stalks around the lounge, noting various high-class businessmen and rockstars, before Juanita catches up and starts talking to him.
  • Practically the first thing she does is warn him not to take Snow Crash; then she says she'd like him to meet her associate, Lagos. They bicker a bit over religion—Juanita is Catholic, Hiro doesn't buy it—and then Juanita hands him a hypercard labeled "Babel (Infocalypse)."
