My festive wish.

It has been a great year for me this 2009. My kids have been a pleasure and grown in theier own way outwards, and I was lucky enough to go to Japan where I met some great people.

So my Festive wish for everyone is to just 'Let it happen" and by that I mean the good stuff.

The good stuff is different for everyone. So Just let it happen.

Virtual Light comes of age

Battle of Branchage from seeper on Vimeo.



Virtual Light is a novel by William Gibson. If you do not know who or what William Gibson is I recommend you follow these links. to WIKI, to his official BOOK site.

When I taught IT and Multimedia i asked my students to write a few paragraphs on the computer about why William Gibson is significant ? If they did not want to write about him they must write the same amount of content of some other significant person from the world of CYBER... nothing to do with dirty chats either.

Out of 7 classes only only one person thought they should write about Bill Gates instead.

copied from wiki.

In Neuromancer, Gibson first used the term "matrix" to refer to the visualised Internet, two years after the nascent Internet was formed in the early 1980s from the computer networks of the 1970s.[127][128][129] Gibson thereby imagined a worldwide communications network years before the origin of the World Wide Web,[47] although related notions had been previously been imagined by others, including science fiction writers.[VI][VII] At the time he wrote "Burning Chrome", Gibson "had a hunch that [the Internet] would change things, in the same way that the ubiquity of the automobile changed things."[26] In 1995, he identified the advent, evolution and growth of the Internet as "one of the most fascinating and unprecedented human achievements of the century", a new kind of civilization that is – in terms of significance — on a par with the birth of cities,[82] and in 2000 predicted it would lead to the death of the nation state.[26]

Observers contend that Gibson's influence on the development of the Web reached beyond prediction; he is widely credited with creating an iconography for the information age, long before the embrace of the Internet by the mainstream.
