Thanks to my friend Memetic Engineer for posting this report on a recent William Gibson book signing in the UK to his excellent blog SpookCountry.co.uk:
William Gibson mentioned Node website at least twice during his reading, talk and signing session at the TUC conference centre in London:
- The very first question the moderator asked about was the impact of the annotations in the Node magazine node.tumblr.com. – William Gibson seemed to be positive about them, but noted that the previous PR-otaku site for Pattern Recognition took about a year to appear after publication, whilst this project, to which I have added my own annotations here on this blog happened even before the official book publication date.
- When asked about the impact of “micro-celebrity” and “Web 2.0” technology, William Gibson again cited his meeting with patternboy who made an impact from a small town in Colorado, with the help of international contributors.
