Ya know standing in the backyard posting to live journal from your phone feels at once really liberating and really stupid. Technology is finally catching up to what was promised in all those William Gibson novels and this is what I'm using it for.

We are truly just smart apes. Or at least I am.

Did Gibson not fail to predict portable mobile phones in his work then? I seem to remember that the only comms devices in his books are either hard-wired or satellite based.

I was referring more to the "wired everywhere" thing. It's true that he kind of jumped right to the jack in the back of the head simstim thing.

And I just read Snow Crash so maybe I'm thinking more like the "Gargoyles" with their computer bits hanging all over them.
