Agreed, quite a good series. I read it maybe 6 months ago, after GCC recommended it, and enjoyed it quite a bit.
Wholeheartedly agree. Maybe not quite on the level of Stephenson or Gibson, but quite worth reading in his own right.
Funny, I just read my first Stephenson about two weeks ago (Snow Crash) and thought his was a more primitive version of the same idea (though, to be fair, it was published before the first graphical web browser was released), but that Nexus is the better, more modern version (again, written 22 years later, with all the benefits that entails).
