I read William Gibson’s novel “Pattern Recognition” a few years back. I remember thinking at the time that he was tapped right in to the culture of the Internet and that the book was a pretty important piece of fiction for the Design Industry.
This new post on the Core77 blog about a fake Porche design feels like it was stripped right from the book.
My guess is that someone’s hand has been slapped. The video has been taken off YouTube.
@Nurb…Pattern Recognition is my favorite William Gibson book to date. I am reading Spook Country right now, and it hasn’t gripped me nearly like his previous books…it has a much slower build and I am still waiting for the hook more than halfway into the book.
