* HollywoodGameDesign: Stephenson has obviously done his homework in regards to MMO games, but he still takes creative license.

** At one point, the opening sequence of T'Rain is described as being ripped off from the opening sequence of GoogleEarth, which is in turn (accurately) described as being ripped off from some old science fiction novel. The novel in question is one of Stephenson's earlier books, ''Literature/SnowCrash''.
