Gibson himself is well aware of how science fiction becomes dated. He even wrote a short story partly based on that concept ("The Gernsback Continuum") in which the main character suffers from visions of the 1950s "future that never was." Personally, I don't see it as a problem. As long as the world of the story is logical and self-consistent, does it matter whether it matches up exactly with reality? And as other posters have noted, Gibson's work is less about the technology itself than the technology's effect on society. And his views on that, I think, are still quite relevant.
Did I just read someone's Knight Rider fanfiction erotica? Thanks, Slashdot.

Adoption of the metric system is the first step on the slippery slope to communism. I will grant the difficulty of converting back for those nations that have already made this mistake, and so I move that we rechristen the "kilometer" the "freedom mile."
I live in Nagano, Japan, which at over 350,000 people would be an "ordinary city" most places, but in Japan it feels pretty small. You could slot the whole downtown area into a few blocks of Tokyo and no one would likely notice...
Hey, you're a vampire. You got time.
Walking around neighborhoods? More like driving around in vans with obnoxious loudspeakers. The campaign posters are funny, too. It's obvious that they're heavily regulated as to content and layout. Candidate name, picture, office desired, party name, brief generic slogan. It's like the elections are designed to be boring. I'm almost glad I can't vote...
I expect Yahoo Answers can help out with the first question, at least... http://encyclopediadramatica.com/How_is_babby_formed%3F
