So Bruce Sterling is the flavor of the moment of the blogging set for his Austin Chronicle article called Information Wants To Be Worthless. As usual he’s smart, insightful, witty, and forces you to think. He’s able to generate hope and cynicism at the same time. I love the guy. I’ll just say that I’ve been talking about the guy to anyone who would listen to me since I read Islands in the Net in 1989. 1989 was 13 years ago. And with the net, I have proof! Here I am in 1997 talking about Bruce on usenet. For even more Bruce, do not miss the Bruce Sterling Online Index. Be sure to check the speeches. Those are my favorites.
