Zero History

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I’m really enjoying reading William Gibson’s latest, Zero History, which includes such lovely bits of writing as this:

He looked down at the screen, the glowing map. Saw it as a window into the city’s underlying fabric, as though he held something from which a rectangular chip of London’s surface had been pried, revealing a substrate of bright code. But really, wasn’t the opposite true, the city the code that underlay the map?
