This afternoon I'm running over to the research buildings to hear William Gibson speak about something. Anything. Really, I don't care, anything. Gibson is easily my favorite author since my English teacher introduced me to Neuromancer back in high school. My teacher noted that my writing style was about as dense and cryptic as Gibson’s (not exactly a compliment, but whatever). He also mentioned that I’d probably enjoy the themes in the book as well. Was he ever right (he was also right about my writing style, but whatever).
