William Gibson has a weblog

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 07, 2003

Sci-fi writer William Gibson (Neuromancer) has started a weblog. Long regarded as a Luddite when it comes to writing, Gibson says that’s just not true:

“Google me and you can learn that I do it all on a manual typewriter, something that hasn’t been true since 1985, but which makes such an easy hook for a lazy journalist that I expect to be reading it for the rest of my life. I only used a typewriter because that was what everyone used in 1977, and it was manual because that was what I happened to have been able to get, for free.”

His weblog is powered by Blogger, which, I suppose, is the 2003 version of the manual typewriter: not state-of-the-art, but free. (via bb)
