Golf GTIs, Neuromancers, and Postfix Enabler Betas

Category : Commentary/neuromancer.txt

Lots of downloads of Postfix Enabler Beta. I'd like to thank the people who left their real names and e-mail addresses (at least from what I can tell, they look real) because it feels good to know it's been used by all of you and that you trust us not to spam you, or otherwise abuse the information.

Just a story. I once sold my car (an old racing-green Golf GTI Mark I) to a guy who's a music producer, and I was still working at the Ministry of Defense's IT operations then. He came into our office, which was a Kafka-esque kind of place, and he was telling me how he can't understand how all of us could be staring into the computer terminals all day long. I mean, this is a guy who works with pretty Taiwanese artistes all night long, and so I can imagine how he's got better things to stare at.

So it's amazing that you could gaze into this flat screen of the iBook, and feel yourself connected to dozens of people all over the world. Open the lid, wait for the Airport signal to latch on, and you're ready to jack yourself in. Neuromancers all of us.
