Neuromancer turns 25: What it got right, what it got wrong
Ultimately Neuromancer is a book about the increasing presence of technology in the life of human beings. This may well be the dominant story line of the 21st century. Macworld examines Gibson's prophecies and which have come true and which, perhaps thankfully, remain the remit of fiction.
