William Gibson's cyberpunk novel turns 30

William Gibson, one of the most innovative science fiction writers of the last 30 years, invented “cyberpunk” with the publication of his novel Neuromancer in 1984.

  When Britain’s Peter Benenson founded Amnesty International in 1961, he was confronted not only by the reality that human dignity was routinely abused in most of the world, but by apologists for human rights abuse in the West. They fell in two camps: the mindless leftists willing to give the Soviet Bloc and Mao’s China a pass; and the feckless supporters of U.S. foreign policy ...

Ever since The Bad Plus attracted way more attention than most of their contemporaries could ever dream of over a decade ago with their cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," the unexpected cover has been the surest way for a jazz act to garner buzz outside of the usual jazz circles. That's proven to be both a blessing and a curse for the genre. While it's introduced new listeners to a form...

Today Pitchfork ran a thoughtful but dubious analysis of Radiohead's Kid A that argued, artfully but rather arbitrarily, the CD was "the last of its kind."

Perhaps jealous of all the buzz Radiohead gets whenever that band so much as offers a free JPG download on its Web site, Beck has upped his online game this summer, unleashing an onslaught of freebies, almost all of which are good enough to charge for. He re-launched his site in June with a "Record Club" where a different band is enlisted to cover a classic album in day, beginning with his own tak...
