Sites about Synners
by Pat Cadigan
"To be a Synner is to join the on-line hardcore, an outlaw band of video hackers, simulation pirates, and reality synthesisers - hot-wired socket-jockeys hooked on artificial reality and virtual space. Now you can change yourself to suit the machines - jack into cyberspace dreamworlds and leave the meat behind. All it costs you is your freedom - and your humanity. But something new is loose in the network, a wildfire virus with a mind of its own that can crash the system and trash your brain. The Synners created it. Now it's up to them to stop it."
