Cyberpunk novelist, designer, academic, blogger, thinker, Bruce Sterling at the SAP Community day – Munich Teched. Great speech, Fascinating man.
but I kept expecting him to say,
“It seems that you’ve been living two lives. One life, you’re Thomas A. Anderson, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a social security number, pay your taxes, and you… help your landlady carry out her garbage. The other life is lived in computers, where you go by the hacker alias “Neo” and are guilty of virtually every computer crime we have a law for. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not.
It is entirely appropriate for a founder of the cyberpunk genre to dress like the world’s most famous screensaver, but DFOF would not recommend it for the rest of us.
