Hippiepunk

Take a look…an amazing snippet of a news piece from the CBC from 1967 about the Hippie movement in Yorkville. Why should you watch this? Because the hippie that is interviewed at the beginning of the piece, Bill, is now better known as William Gibson, one of the founders of the cyberpunk movement of sci-fi and the writer of the book after which this blog is named.

Really a great window into the world of 1967, but it is incredible to look at that 19 year old and see and hear in him the author that would come to be.
