Along with Gibson's Neuromancer, Snow Crash effectively defines Cyper Punk and the whole Hacker concept. Virtually the entire subculture/genre revolves around memes from these two books.
Read it for that reason alone. So influential that it's hard to tell anymore whether those two books were inspired by, or inspired, the hacker culture itself.
Probably Stevenson's best work, too.
And it's hilarious. It doesn't just run on Rule of Cool, it virtually is Rule of Cool
