William Gibson on William Gibson

William Gibson now on William Gibson then. Yep, that is indeed me, though nothing I'm saying there, at such painful length, is even remotely genuine. They were offering $500 for someone to monologue about the summer of lurve, etc., and I was (1) somewhat articulate, and (2) wanted desperately to get my ass out of Yorkville ... $500 was serious money

Thanks, delmoi.

Although he has a very pedestrian taste for blogs, his comment in today's Guardian about how blogging interferes with "the ecology of writing" rings true.

I figured as a comment, not as many people who read the first artical would see this.

It still didn't need its own FPP.

I love his work but man he's a pretty terrible writer from a more technical/mechanics standpoint.

Because, as we all know, the whole idea of MF is to have as few FPPs as possible.

Is this going to be another one of those threads where we spend the whole thread talking about whether the thread should exist?

Ah, I shouldn't complain. I love you guys! I'm so sorry!
