Read Gibson’s Sprawl Trilogy (Neuromancer, Count Zero, and Mona Lisa Overdrive) again this week.
Why isn’t the future here yet. It’s pretty fucking late. Or to quote Erik, “It’s 2002, where’s my god damn flying car? You promised us flying cars!”
Really, all I want in life is to be a William Gibson character. Is that so much to ask? I want the microsofts and the biosofts and the augmentation and the mirrored freakin shades and all that. Wake me up in fifty years when it’s not.
Oh, has anyone seen the documentary about him, No Maps for these Territories. Good? Bad? eh? Huh? If Cinefile or Vidiots have it I’m gonna rent it this week…
