William Gibson on The Matrix/Neuromancer
First off, if anyone who reads here actually knows Mr. Reeves, please please please, let him know about William Gibson's blog .
Send him the link, or print it out if you have to.
The most recent entry is a must read for the first part alone, but Mr. Gibson also also responds to a thread about The Matrix on his board.
"When I began to write NEUROMANCER, there was no "cyberpunk". THE MATRIX is arguably the ultimate "cyberpunk" artifact. Or will be, if the sequels don't blow. I hope they don't, and somehow have a hunch they won't, but I'm glad I'm not the one who has to worry about it. "
That's just an excerpt, go read the whole thing
. (I really recommend reading the whole entry, but if you just want to read the Matrix stuff, scroll way down to where it says: "THE MATRIX: FAIR COP")
William Gibson is also getting ready to start the tour for Pattern Recognition.
Of course there's no way he'll come to Vegas, literary wasteland that it is.

Thanx for the link!
I hope he comes to London....
I should clarify that I didn't mean for Keanu read it for the Matrix mention, but for everything else.
yes, krix, so right! i read this Gibson post early this morning, and had a similar reaction (thought of keanu). but then, when DON'T i think of keanu?
Quite interesting to read that Gibson relates the Matrix more woth Phillip K Dick than with Neuromancer. Surprised, too, that he took so long to watch it once, and again, only to keep on digesting the enormous amount of subliminal/alternate conceptions that the Wachovski bros have put in it.
Still, though, waiting for Neuromancer, the movie.
