In an eerie echo from William Gibson's Count Zero, the New York Times syndication feed keeps chanting at me: “Names of the Dead, Names of the Dead.” (Update: The day after I published this piece, the Times changed the way they run these stories!)
No more “Names of the Dead.” I wonder if this is a coincidence.
Original Note · I find it a little disturbing, and not because of the Gibson reference. I don’t often click on these, but probably we all should, more often. And a visit to that mirror’s other side couldn’t hurt, either.
Thanks to Anthony Foiani (Tkil) for straightening me out on Gibson.
