I was checking out Google's increasingly helpful Book Search today and was surprised to discover this:I'm sure this sort of experience grows old quick, but I'm appreciating the novelty of seeing my own words reduced to a blockquote in someone else's argument. The realization that my, "subtle understanding of the spirit of cultural revolt is not matched by a sober estimation of its potential influence on the social order," is an added bonus. Oddly, this nearly twelve-year-old piece was also the occasion for the most exciting fanmail I ever received, a short note of praise from cyberpunk author Bruce Sterling sent from his Well account. Oh, to be a young, vivacious long-hair once more. . .
