Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If I'd answered seriously it'd have been Playing the Odds, but what can you do against photosynthetic chickens, peach-flavored eggs, carnivorous candle-plants, talking crows, pink tiger-striped squirrels and birds that sound like spooky violins ? Huh?

I know... it's a Hiyazaki future... I don't believe it for a minute, but wouldn't it be something?

Playing the Odds, but perhaps even more the Optimistic scenario, puts Ran kind of in line with Bruce Sterling's speculations in Heavy Weather and the far more amusing Distraction.  I personally like the San Francisco that Gibson paints for us in Virtual Light -- the Bridge community seems very real to me...

The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
