    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFI picked up this obscure 1981 novella by the insider loved science fiction author Vernor Vinge because of recently learning that it's demonstrably the very first story to define the trope we now know as cyberspace and that the authors who eventually created the cyberpunk genre in the late '80s and early '90s William Gibson Bruce Sterling Neal Stephenson etc were all passionate fans of this book and basically used it as a starting place for their own stories And after reading it I can attest that all this is very much true and

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFOriginally published as a novella in 1981 this version of True Names contains illustrations by Bob Walters and an afterword by Marvin Minsky I read this back in 1984 and really enjoyed re reading it on a plane flight across the country RecommendedWhile some of the tech is a little dated Vinge keeps it mostly in the background At one point the protagonist utilizes other computers to increase his power online and this is not so different from networked computers participating in a DDOS attack today For a story written in 1981 the author was remarkably prescientOther aspects of the plot are also well done and I found the female protagonist Erythrina well written Using fantasy metaphors for the imagined cyber

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFMy first Vinge even if A Fire Upon the Deep is still waiting to be read as well 'True Names and the Opening of the Cyberspace Frontier' is a re release of Vinge's same titled novella caught between introductions essays and an afterword The introduction of this edition is by Hari Kunzru whom I've never heard of to be honest He gives a bit of background on the novella and the period in which is was written Editor James Frenkel reminisces about his time as Vinge's editor at Tor Books and of course about the novella obviously Then comes Vinge's own introduction He tells about how the novella came to be what influenced him what it's about and so on The afterword is by Marvin Minsky another unknown name to me Neatly put after the novella itself he uses the events as basis for his view on the matter on how the future

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFBefore Neuromancer and Snow Crash there was Vinge's True Names written in 1981 Hackers meet in cyberspace a virtual representation of data space they call the Other Plane Metaphors and symbols of magic are applied to this world they are warlocks and wizards they cast spells modern day sorcery in a completely networked world There are battles in cyberspace amassing computation power that goes to your head and makes you Gods encryption schemes to trick those who control you because they know your true name there's the NSA conflicts over good and bad and governing authorities a dormant yet evolving AI even upload of consciousness There's a lot in there and it's a rather slim book ideas that Vinge doesn't nearly get enough credit for I am glad I got here finally

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFThe cyberpunk subgenre of science fiction was rooted in the work of New Wave SF authors such as Philip K Dick Roger Zelazny and JG Ballard Its themes began to emerge in the late 1970s in SF comics such as Judge Dredd and crystallized around the 1982 Riddley Scott movie Blade Runner the Japanese manga series Akira and in particular William Gibson’s novel Neuromancer 1984Gibson consolidated four elements that came to define the subgenre technology especially the internet cybernetics and artificial intelligence society a dystopic near future extension of neo liberalism an unending desolate urban landscape and a hard bitten noir style building on authors such as Raymond Chandler and William Burroughs and the gonzo journalism of Hunter S ThompsonThe most striking aspect of Neuromancer was its prediction of the internet which didn’t exist when the novel was published Gibson who knew very little about computers called it cyberspace Placed in the novel’s dystopic social an

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFI was inspired to read this after reading Finn Brunton's Digital Cash and how it inspired the early Crypto anarchists eventually leading to the creation of bitcoin and the vision for anonymous identities Some of the names seem archaic now but given that this was written in 1981 about 38 years from when I'm reading I think it holds up pretty wellThe story follows a group of early adopters of a new full immersion virtual reality technology called the Other Plane they call themselves warlocks in the story They resemble the curious hacker stereotypes that penetrate computer systems around the world for personal profit or curiosity They call their cabal a

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFI wasn't expecting to start reading the novel at page 190 Until then there are a series of articles to introduce the theme a set up the mood I honestly can't tell if I enjoyed the articles than the novel The article on remailers was amazingHaving been in contact the works such as The Matrix Strange Days eXistenZ Tron etc the universe presented by True Names doesn't have the wow effect it must have had in 1981 Overall the novel is enjoyableI might read another nove

    True Names MOBI º Paperback true kindle, names ebok, True Names PDFA uick read and a little dated but hey the book is as old as I am but very interesting to see Vinge's ideas of the potential future of tech back in the 80's A lot of the concepts here have been used by other authors since this was written and have been well updated That being said I enjoyed this novella short story and its discussion of AI and augmented human capabilitiesRating PG
