Being Ahead Of The Curve

As reported by the Financial Times, the Guardian and the BBC, it appears that elements of the Chinese army have been tested the electronic defences of this country.

Once again it looks like William Gibson was ahead of the curve in his book Neuromancer in which he foresaw the Chinese army deploying large virus clouds to take out part of cyberspace.

If you haven't already read Neuromancer, I'd highly recommend doing so as William Gibson describes the cyberspace & the web back in 1986, a full three years before Tim Berners Lee even started fiddling around with it at Cern. Its influence can be seen in films such as the Matrix.
