Content:

Gibson is way ahead, even for today. I couldn't believe that this book is ten years old.

Laney is a guy, who can anticipate a persons next move by looking at the data being generated by that person up to now.

Chia is a fan of Lo/Rez, a japanese Band, whose singer has announced his marriage to a digital celebrity.

Both of them get on the task of finding out what is beind all that.

A mixture of a cyber culture that is still futuristic today, music culture and thriller. The style of writing is sometimes hard to grasp for a german dude like me.

Still, I recommend this book, especially if you are into flickr, del.icio.us and all these kind of things.
