I'm reading Cryptnomicon and this ***spying technique figures into the
story.  I had never heard of it before.  Basically, it picks up the EM
signal from one computer monitor and uses it to reconstruct the image on
another monitor.  

YouTube video here:

Pretty scary implications.

That's a very interesting book.  Tell us how well you ended up liking
it when you are done, I'm curious.

I am nearly through.  Excellent, excellent book.  Great story by a very
smart writer.

I've also just read "Anathem" and "Reamde" as well.  All very different,
but definitely worth looking into.

The video above is pretty interesting, even if it's just to see the news
announcers "hai" before starting the broadcast.  I am surprised that
this type of security issue not gotten more press over here.

Twenty years ago, I worked for a company with significant Defense Department contracts.  The patent attorney who did work for that division had to have his office lined with an EM shield to prevent just such an attack.

Have you tried, or are you going to now try, The Baroque Cycle?

I am thinking about it.  But I will probably have start triathlon
training and lose about 20 pounds first.  It looks like a *very*
formidable read.  

I take it you recommend it?

Yes.

Other than his bloated and meandering and badly-in-need-of-an-editor
Baroque Cycle books (or maybe he was using Stephen King's at the time),
I haven't read anything of his that wasn't good. From SNOW CRASH to
REAMDE to everything in-between. But he still needs an editor (not as
badly as at points in the past, but even REAMDE could have used some
more tightening) and CRYPTONOMICON remains his best, IMO.
