The otaku, the passionate obsessive, the internal linkinformation age's embodiment of the connoisseur, more concerned with the accumulation of data than of objects, seems a natural crossover figure in today's internal linkinterface of British and internal linkJapanese cultures. I see it in the eyes of the Portobello dealers, and in the eyes of the Japanese collectors: a perfectly calm train-spotter frenzy, murderous and sublime. Understanding otaku-hood, I think, is one of the keys to understanding the culture of the web. There is something profoundly post-national about it, extra-geographic. We are all curators, in the post-modern world, whether we want to be or not. - internal linkWilliam Gibson

Diane: "You're not getting any younger, Mark. The world is changing, music is changing, even drugs are changing. You can't stay in here all day dreaming about heroin and Ziggy Pop."

Renton: "It's Iggy Pop."

Diane: "Whatever. I mean, the guy's dead anyway."

Renton: "Iggy Pop is not dead. He toured last year. Tommy went to see him."

Diane: "The point is, you've got to find something new."

Renton (voice over): "She was right. I had to find something new. There was only one thing for it."
