Re: William Gibson has said that Neuromancer is a more OPTIMISTIC view of the future than what would happen since **at least** 1994. Check Timothy Leary: Chaos & Cyberculture if you don't believe it.

Really interesting interview in general

Regarding Ray Bradbury and Fahrenheit 451- the book is themed against both censorship and television. The anti-television moral simply isn't as obvious now as it used to be because the obscenely large teleivisons and television-centered lifestyles described in the book are Not So Crazy Anymore.
