I put the shotgun in an Adidas bag and padded it out with four pairs of
tennis socks, not my style at all, but that was what I was aiming for: If
they think you're crude, go technical; if they think you're technical, go
crude. I'm a very technical boy. So I decided to get as crude as possible.
These days, though, you have to be pretty technical before you can even
aspire to crudeness.
-- William Gibson, "Johnny Mnemonic"
