LG15 Anticipated by William Gibson
As usual, William Gibson presages reality by several years...
Those of you heartbroken by the LonelyGirl15 controversy - you mean she was FAKING!!!??? - should read or re-read Pattern Recognition (written in 2002).
In the story a series of art videos appear at irregular intervals on the Internet... Who posted them, are they real, what do they actually depict? It becomes a "mystical viral" thing.
I am not the first to note The Association with LG15 - it has been under discussion on Gibson's Blog's Message Board. (So many geeks in the world, so little semtex.)
Gibson's prescience is astounding. As per.
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
actually, I would say that Beckett's, Flinders' and Goodfried's powers of recognizing and coopting a cool idea are astounding. I *would* say it, if it hadn't taken them 14 years.
"so many geeks in the world, so little semtex"...dude I have seen you salivate in SinLim you are a geek ~lol~
I don't see what the fuss about lonelygirl is about. much of what's on virtual reality is fake anyway.
indiana, do you not know - geek is the new cool.
ps. being an early adopter, i was dating geeks from as far back as 10 years ago!
MM: being on he ball culturally speaking, is so mcu crap...
Indy: that was Bruce inthe 4FoW, not me in Simlim... TV/video pc-mcia card? how much?
Ivy: similar comments on the discussion site.
Ooops 2002, not 1992.
random cuts of art videos virally in the deep web which was presaged by ...?
XB: Is that a riddle? You've dropped back into code again.
