Burly Vinson (Founder/Snappies)As I said, I’m a SciFi nerd, so right now I’m reading Neuromancer by William Gibson. As for what I expect to get from it? Probably not a lot from an entrepreneur point of view, but that’s fine by me.
Damien Mulley (Owner/Mulley Communications)The coiner of "cyber space", the guy that created a virtual world full of hackers called "the Matrix" in 1984. A seminal book for me. I read it as a teen and it turned computers into a thing rockstars used. Possibly encouraged me to do things with computers you are not meant to do. A catalyst, a rabbit hole.
The sky above the port was the colour of television, tuned to a dead channel.
William Gibson revolutionised science fiction in his 1984 debut Neuromancer. The writer who gave us the matrix and coined the term 'cyberspace' produced a first novel that won the Hugo, Nebula and Philip K. Dick Awards, and lit the fuse on the Cyberpunk movement.
More than three decades later, Gibson's text is as stylish as ever, his noir narrative still glitters like chrome in the shadows and his depictions of the rise and abuse of corporate power look more prescient every day. Part thriller, part warning, Neuromancer is a timeless classic of modern SF and one of the 20th century's most potent and compelling visions of the future.
