The LSD guru, the 1980s pop-star and video games to reprogram your brain

Eric Pedersen

Are you sure about it not seeing the light of day?

I've got a copy of Neuromancer sitting on my shelf at home. It definitely has a soundtrack by Devo. However I don't know if it's the same one that you're talking about. Pictures to follow if anyone is interested.

It works; better than my brain anyways.

I'm a happy Nimble customer because their support (with the system heartbeats, etc) has saved my bacon a few times. For example; the UBD moment when I downsized a LUN on the SAN *before* I shrank it on the VMware guest & host. Oh, how we laughed - after it was fixed...

Can we look forward to a future 'technology/revenue sharing agreement' wrapped in NDAs?

Enjoy your Pyhrric victory when it comes, boys and/or girls. (Though I'm sure that members of the sensible sex are not involved.)

"Sheep Shifting?! Sheep Shifting???!!"

Baaaah'd punster, baaaaah'd! Ewe otter be ashamed of yourself.

World Camera offers enhanced reality via iPhone

"Virtual Light" anyone?

I think William Gibson deserves a bit of credit for introducing the concept. Such a pity that sci-fi novels don't count as prior art, seeing as so many patents are pure fiction.

I, for one, welcome our new geo-tagging overlords...

Blu-man, cause he looks a little like Mr. G.

There I go to G-Bay

I'm not exactly the most calm flyer, and it's gotten worse with age. I guess I'll be plastered against the wall by the CCTV-watching Jack Bauer wanna-be for grimacing during turbulence.
