Total Recall RJS nod


Woohoo! Just started reading the book Total Recall: How the E-Memory Revolution Will Change Everything by Gordon Bell and Jim Gemmell (with a forward by Bill Gates), and what should I find on page 16 but this:
But themes of Total Recall have been explored in science fiction for decades. In Hominids, Robert J. Sawyer imagines the citizen of the future sporting a body-implanted "companion" computer that transmits information about his or her location, as well as three-dimensional images of exactly what he or she is doing, to an "alibi archive." The archive protects against false accusations.
Needless to say, so far I'm quite enjoying the book!

(Although I do admit to being much more surprised to find myself quoted in The 4-Hour Workweek -- but this is still way cool.)

The books enter the world, and go where they will.
