I'm reading The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. It's a fascinating hypothesis, if somewhat outlandish. The text is a little dated, as far as the neurological literature is concerned, but so far only minor pieces of evidence are made moot by modern research, and I can't think of any good reason why the theory couldn't hold up.
Robert J. Sawyer used that book a lot in developing the story for his WWW trilogy (Wake, Watch and Wonder), in which the Internet gains sentience. I've considered finding a copy and checking it out, but my "to read" list is still way too long as it is.
Now that will be interesting to read after this! Was the trilogy good?
