In a way, Gibson has quoted me. Oh. My. God. This Guardian UK article gave me credit for the “database of intentions” which readers will recall was post #63 (of about 4500 or so) and the basis of my first book. Gibson then goes on to quote Borges and the idea of the DBoI.
William Gibson was my hero at Wired, I worked with him as his editor (if you can call it that) while at Wired, but we’ve lost touch.
Wow, what an honor. Cool!
