William Gibson Speaks!

“The story of film begins around a fire, in darkness. Gathered around this fire are primates of a certain species, our ancestors, an animal distinguished by a peculiar ability to recognize patterns.”

William Gibson, from his speech to the Directors Guild of America on their Digital Day,  Los Angeles, May 17, 2003.

Gibson is just amazing in his ability to weave words into patterns that mean more than the words seperately…they hold weight they did not previously have access to when he finishes with them.
