William Gibson on nationality

leave a comment »

Here’s a great clip from a 1992 documentary titled Cyberpunk, which contains this gem from William Gibson: “I think we’re leaning toward a world where all consumers under a certain age will probably identify more with their consumer status or with the products they consume than with an antiquated notion of nationality. We’re increasingly interchangeable.”

Need a hand?

You may be in luck. KPCC’s Alex Cohen recently interviewed Dr. Kodi Azari, surgical director of UCLA’s Hand Transplantation Program, who says his program is looking for candidates for a clinical study. Candidates must be between 18 and 60 years old, not have any major health problems or infections, and their amputation can’t be the result of cancer or a birth defect. In the interview, Azari says the donated hands come from individuals who have suffered “brain death,” meaning “their body is alive but they are considered dead according to organ procurement agency guidelines.”
