Sci-Fi writer William Gibson on his new iPad

William Gibson

Science-fiction author William Gibson talks to WSJ about his iPad (and other things):

I’ve watched myself very carefully in my first week of being a tablet user, and I did experience some amazement and in a way it caused me to recalibrate my view of what you could do with a personal computer. But now, I take it for granted, and that’s the weird thing that happens with new technology. It requires an act of conscious archaeology now, for me to go back and imagine what it was like before I had this little portable thing with scarcely any moving parts.
