Over at at the Internet Archive's Timothy Leary collection, my pal Chris Arkenberg spotted this cyberpunk flashback: a promotional video featuring Leary, William Gibson, and others promoting a film adaptation of Neuromancer that, obviously, never happened. The film was also teased on the box for the Neuromancer computer game released in 1988, dating the above video to that same period. Gibson: "To my mind at least, (Neuromancer) is really the world that we live in, just pushed a little bit."
