William Gibson's response to the database debacle

Boing Boing quotes William Gibson speaking on a radio show about the database debacle:

"I keep seeing that in the lower discourse of the Internet, people saying, 'Oh, they're doing it anyway.' In some way our culture believes that, and it's a real problem, because evidently they haven't been doing it anyway, and now that they've started, we really need to pay attention and muster some kind of viable political response."
