Does you mind wander regularly

"As a movement, cyberpunk denies progress towards a better society - there is only technological progress, which repeals utopia and threatens to undo the man himself."//tgdaily

Long Live the Web: A Call for Continued Open Standards and Neutrality

"Several threats to the Web’s universality have arisen recently," he says.

Such a game would be the big lab we need.//Castronova
