Notes on 'Software' (1982) by Rudy Rucker (b. 1946)

Software is a pioneering proto-Cyberpunk work that envisions an absurd world of sentient machines. It is the first book in Rudy Rucker’s Ware tetralogy (1982-2000), which follows the lives of a small number of west-coast, counter-cultural families, their haphazard and often accidental relationship with rapid technological change gradually moving towards pure technological transcendence. It won the PKD Award (1983).
