Pattern Recognition

The most important study of new media today to appear this year. The center of this story if the quest for The Footage -- a set of strangely evocative snippets of film that have been appearing sporadically on the Web and which have gained an international cult following. Gibson gets Web culture exactly right, and gives us a glimpse at the culture's aspirations as no writer has done before.
