SF Read of the Week

RotW got lost in the mix yesterday, between Harry Potter reviews and my excessive napping, but I've made good and found a story I first read about five years ago.

Georgie still wasn't there at 8:05. Rayno checked his watch again, then finally looked up from his caffix. "The compiler's been cracked," he said. Lisa and I both swore. We'd worked up our own little code to keep our Net private. I mean, our Olders would just blow boards if they ever found out what we were really up to. And now somebody'd broken our code.

It's the story that gave a title to the most famous SF movement of the eighties. It's Bruce Bethke's "Cyberpunk", and it's reprinted at Infinity Plus.
