A conceit in my novel Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom is that our cellphones will disappear into our bodies, silently feeding us audio via cochlear implants and micing our throats to pick up sub-vocalizations (something I think I ripped off from Harry Harrison, though others have done it too). Now a DARPA program has produced a functional prototype of a subvocal pickup that can turn words you haven't spoken into signals on the wire.

I loved this book. The only thing Cory brings to life more vividly than the future WDW is the Bitchun Society itself. I was so engrossed in it, I didn’t want to leave.
