I must echo doofy's comment below. Gibson pretty much jumped the shark after his neuromancer or mona lisa overdrive; everything following those two pretty much reeks. And he completely lost any of the truly technoid crowd when he wrote that godawful and fictional op-ed in the New York Times about Stuxnet - - Gibson made the world's biggest fool of himself, something he will never live down [Yes, Gibson, Stuxnet wasn't a basement fanboi creation, it was extremely sophisticated, as many a real 10-level hacker will attest to!]
