This Sounds Like Something William Gibson Would Make Up

Regarding Google’s plans to bid in the upcoming wireless spectrum auction, PaidContent notes:

Since the auction will be intense, Google has hired game-theory specialists to help plot its auction strategy, the story says.

One of those game theorists is totally a character out of a William Gibson book.

Actually, wait, no. In the Gibson book it would never be Google — it would be some shadowy Russian holding company. Never mind.

I admit that I am (often) strangely disquieted by the similarity of actual life (as I perceive it) and the speculative fiction of Gibson and Bruce Sterling. The distinctions grow more and more opaque.
