    True Names eBook × Paperback true free, names free, 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 eBook × Paperback true free, names free, 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 comp

    True Names eBook × Paperback true free, names free, True Names PDFA quick 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
