In the News "Spain last night killed a controversial anti-P2P bill that would have made it easier to shut down websites that link to infringing content. The move was a blow to the ruling Socialist government, but it may be of even bigger concern to the US, which pushed, threatened, and cajoled Spain to clamp down on downloading. And Wikileaks can take a share of the credit for the defeat."

So, there I am walking down the street to work with moving picture billboards on every available surface and what apears to be an open space dedicated to them; TO's own little downtown Time's Square as it where. I'm talking on a small slab of phone plastic or through a small chunk of headset plastic hidden in my ear. I have at least four devices that can capture still images, three of which do video. Much of what I do during the day could easily be done from home or the office. (this about six years ago)

I've been watching Mr Gibson's future setting become reality for a while now. Technically, we're living in the Silverlight erra (hm.. did MS borrow the name?) which comes just before the Cyberpunk setting we know so well.

Welcome to the Cyber-corporation, Cyberpunks.
