Lew Platt, CEO of Hewlett-Packard, wrote this fascinating, futuristic fiction for "stubborn idealists in biology and computer science, searching even now for ways to free us from the injustice of mortality." This book is about hackers and the near future in cyberspace. A person finds himself inside of a computer being manipulated from the outside. Life can be eternal but death can be as instant as a power failure or system crash. This computerized reality, populated with "infomorphs", is described with unprecedented realism.
