William Gibson

William Gibson: “Then Bruce Sterling’s father gave him an Apple II. I guess he’d moved up to the first Mac. So there’s Bruce on the phone from Austin: ‘This is *serious*, man. This thing *automates* the process.’ So I went down to Eaton’s and bought a IIC and a dot-matrix printer, marked way down because the new Mac was the thing. So I never got the Selectric that had been the pro writer’s awesomest tool when I’d started trying to write. I saw one of those for $29.95 in a charity shop, last year.”
