Article offers straightforward biographical information about William Gibson.

“Gibson remembers picturing cyberspace in “the first micro-photographs of computer chips – which looked a lot like aerial photographs of cities.” He says: “One insight I’ve had recently is that the Internet may be important because we are seeing something akin to what we did when we invented cities.” Gibson glances to the horizon, at Victoria Day fireworks making zinnia blooms in the distance. “We invented this, as a species! Amazing really,” he says, looking out at the city – like someone staring up at the stars and glimpsing infinity.”
