It's interesting that you look at technology from an anthropological perspective, i.e. how technology affects humans.
What do you think about how your (and others) writings of technology also affects it's use and direction of development?
I think your books have had a huge influence on this.
On a personal level, your writing had a huge affect on me. It had more than a little to do with why I spent almost 4 years in Japan (I wanted to see if the sky over Chiba was really the color of tv, tuned to a dead channel) and move into the software industry.
It's interesting to think about how much the market drives the direction of technology versus how much science fiction drives it.
