Burroughs, and David Byrne.

This, in somewhat cleaned-up format, is the original manuscript of the novel I wrote between 1984 and 1989. I'm still not sure whether this is a functional book or merely interesting wreckage, but in an admittedly rather naive experiment in electronic publishing, I'm putting the file on the web under the terms of a shareware license.

THE HACKER CRACKDOWN Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier
Out in the traditional world of print, The Hacker Crackdown is ISBN 0-553-08058-X, and is formally catalogued by the Library of Congress as "1. Computer crimes -- United States. 2. Telephone -- United States -- Corrupt practices. 3. Programming (Electronic computers) -- United States -- Corrupt practices." `Corrupt practices,' I always get a kick out of that description. Librarians are very ingenious people.

In the early spring of 1980, I wrote a little story about
a gang of teenaged hackers. From the very first draft this
story had a name, and lo, the name was---
Future Culture Manifesto
You are five years old. You are lieing on a grassy hill, blowing bubbles up into a clear field of blue sky. Bubbles. Right now, as a five year old child, you look at the bubbles, and words pop into your head: "pretty", "oooooo", "float". To you, the bubbles are almost like people -- at least somewhat analogous to Bugs Bunny or a Smurf. Your wide eyes follow the bubbles as they traipse along the gentle prevailing curves of soft winds, turning, rotating, revolving endlessly in the air. A sunray beams its light through one particular bubble you have been admiring, and within its midst your eyes become privy to a new world -- a heretofor unknown domain of chaotic rainbows swirling about along the bubble. The colors, like a sentient anthill, work at once individually and synergetically to give the bubble it's unique flavor, an individual identity among the community of bubbles.
After the Deluge: Cyberpunk in the '80s and '90s
In the mid-'80s cyberpunk emerged as a new way of doing science fiction in both literature and film. The primary book was William Gibson's Neuromancer; the most important film, Blade Runner. Both featured a hard-boiled style, were intensely sensuous in their rendering of detail, and engaged technology in a manner unusual in science fiction: neither technophiliac (like so much of "Golden Age" sf) nor technophobic (like the sf "New Wave"), cyberpunk did not so much embrace technology as go along for the ride.
Cyberpunk Information Database
The Cyberpunk Project (TCP) is a remotely avaliable data-well net of files about cyberpunk subculture, cyberpunk science-fiction and general cyberculture in the form of collected information. It is the result of years of gathering data and sorting it, to compile a host of cyberpunk-ifnormation related documents and work.
The TCP started in 1996 and was actively supported until late 2002.
