Extrapolation: A Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy 41.4 (Winter 2000): 359-74. William Gibson was born in South Carolina in 1948 and was by most accounts a nerd.

Ryan, Richard. "On the run in a cyberpunk future." I recently got a Mac Plus, where can I find a keyboard and mouse without getting jewed? This raises the question as to whether intelligence comparable to humans should give them comparable legal and moral standing. My measly 8 year infatuation with sci-fi has apparently left me thinking I knew what was going on. :-) Re: #12 - I guess that makes more sense now that I think back on what these books were trying to do; in light of what everyone has been saying.

Robbed of his talent through a crippling injury inflicted by the vengeful partners, Case unexpectedly receives a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be healed by expert medical care but only if he participates in another criminal enterprise with a new crew.

In particular he believes it will be down to "how the university values the output" compared to the traditional way of measuring the number of publications put out by a researcher or department. "It will be interesting to see how they have figured out how talk about fiction and speculation can exist in that framework."
