Cyberwar not as exciting as we thought.

A funny comparison of Gibson's classic Neuromancer "Operation Screaming Fist" and real life cyber attacks. One of my Shadowrun players kept wanting to know why we had to break into buildings in order to steal data. Looks like he was right all along. I rewrote a scene from one of our futuristic Wars TCG stories to include a wireless connection. I was so inculcated by Gibson's view of "the future" I forgot that wires are so twentieth century.
