Greg Egan: Diaspora

Diaspora: A Novel, from Matt Webb’s review: “This is a book about what it means to be human, what it means to be alive, and the nature of distance. On the second day, I finished the book in the morning. Egan has the concept of bridgers – a long chain of translators, each pair having a way to communicate, so two mutually unintelligible ends are bridged, able to communicate. That’s what day two was: extending the bridge of consciousness, of being human, of being itself. Stretching to extremes these things, probing in all directions to distill being to its purest form.”

The above was posted to my personal weblog on March 25, 2003. My name is Peter Lindberg and I am a thirtysomething software developer and dad living in Stockholm, Sweden. Here, you’ll find posts in English and Swedish about whatever happens to interest me for the moment.
