When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth

Novel logo

A really really really NERD novel by Cory Doctorow that tells about a bunch of sysadmins that strive to keep the good ol’ Net online, after a catastrophic event that brought the entire world to its knees. They fight with scarce power and food supplies, and communicate over the Usenet… using the “good old alt. hierarchy”.

Vote: 10+ for the geekiest thing I’ve ever read, it’s really worth the hour needed to read it completely. Enjoy it.
