Quotes of the day, William Gibson (b. March 17, 1948):

As I've said many times, the future is already here. It's just not very evenly distributed.

The Net is a waste of time, and that's exactly what's right about it.

Time moves in one direction, memory in another.

We live in a world where emissions from our refrigerators have caused the ozone layer to evaporate and we'll get skin cancer if we sunbathe. If that's not a science fiction scenario, I don't know what is.

All any drug amounts to is tweaking the incoming data. You have to be incredibly self-centered or pathetic to be satisfied with simply tweaking the incoming data.

[The Internet] will bring about the extinction of the nation-state as we know it... I think it will be as big a deal as the creation of cities.
