When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro

So, 2015, and the world is weirder than ever. I’m not sure who was a better predictor of the weirdness: William Gibson or the Monty Python troupe. Though maybe Monty Python was a catalyst, as they weren’t in the business of futurism.

According to the FBI, Sony was hacked by the government of North Korea, and the U.S. now has sanctions against North Korea because of it, which just has Gibson written all over it.

This post's title, btw, is by Hunter S. Thompson, who knew a little something about weirdness. Happy new year.
