That juxtaposition of technology and humanity is a key theme of the cyberpunk movement, but Cadigan brings it to life with a first person narrative that reveals the dark underside of the technology and examines exploitation, burnout and the subversion of self. Meanwhile Angela, naively thinking that by accepting an Evil Corp job offer she can try to change the machine, instead discovers that it’s all too easy to simply become a part of it. The changes have been so subtle many of us have not noticed how thoroughly technology has penetrated our lives.

By June, Jackson’s case had come to the attention of John Perry Barlow. In the cyberpunk genre, all life incubates in technology. It's the best manga, with the madness of human-like desire that only cyborgs -- not androids -- have, depicted together with hardcore violence. An even less common definition is "science fiction based on hard sciences ( physics, chemistry, etc)." On the phone recently, I suggested to Delany that Asimov’s poor attempt at humor—which, whatever its intent, also served as a reminder, as Delany notes in “Racism and Science Fiction,” that his racial identity would forever be in the minds of his white peers, no matter the occasion—foreshadowed a more recent controversy, centered on a different set of sci-fi awards.

Both women have been wired with the newest technology, a "brainworm" that enables them to receive sensations when they're plugged in--a development despised by the older, mostly male heterosexual "netwalkers."
