there's this book i read a while back called snow crash.
in it, the protagonist, who's name is hiro protagonist, starts investigating a virus that is turning all of his real world friends (who he meets in a virtual world he designed) into vegetables.
anyway one person who he meet in the real world walked around with a computer that he used at all times like an extension of himself.
i think we're there now. i think i'm here with that. it's kind of odd to walk around with a ton of technology strapped to your ears. i'm missing a headset to visualize the internet.
except if i was engaing in criminal activities, the spooks would find me in five minutes.
black helicopters and all that shit.
