A positive virus

"The Internet is strange. It doesn't make any money. It is transnational, beyond anyone's control. It is the great anarchist event." - William Gibson

And language is a virus, said Burroughs. The great anarchist event prophetically depicted in Gibson's Neuromancer, has created a pandemic of the language virus, that is immunizing the tyrannies of ignorance and hierarchy. The consequence of the virus is freethought and revolt.
