Notes Toward A Postcyberpunk Manifesto

Slashdot ran a great article from lawrence person [http://features.slashdot.org/features/99/10/08/2123255.shtml?tid=99] on saturday detailing the shift in sci-fi novels from the classic cyberpunk chrome-and-nanoleather loner experience of the late eighties to early nineties to the generally more community-based post-cyberpunk novels of today. Interesting to note that while Gibson’s Neuromancer simply out-imagined the world in 1986 and has never really been imitated in reality, the societal influence of post-cyberpunk can already be felt on the net with reltagging, myspaces, blogs and the like.
