>>I'm not familiar with these books, but I thought the idea came from William
Gibson, who coined the word "cyberpunk," and wrote _Mona Lisa Overdrive_ and
other sci fi novels (of course, I can't remember the titles, but will look
up if people are interested)...<<
It at least came from the cyberpunk SF genre, of which Gibson was pretty much
the founding father. And, of course, the direct hookup we're discussing is
"wetware" in cyberpunk terminology.
Gosh, I haven't read any of that stuff in a very long time ...
