The way Sundar doesn’t actually name his brother here, you might think Byron had never met him, but in the story “Entitlement,” published at the start of this volume once it went into print, Byron is working with both brothers. Maybe Sundar’s just emphasizing the connection as a form of name-dropping. You know, “MY BROTHER’s gonna be, like, worth more than Mark Zuckerberg.”

The land sharks make their first appearance here, and it must’ve been Phil who came up with them, because I was so unfamiliar with World of Warcraft that I thought using “land shark” to describe a fantasy creature (instead of a real estate speculator) was original with us. It wasn’t.
