There was this book. from the mid 80's. Ive done several google searches for it, but keep coming up empty. This book was similar to Neuromancer and such, but had some different aspects to it that, looking back on it, was very prophetic of internet and cybercrime and AI issues we are experiencing... TODAY. I just wanna buy/own the book again. So, here are the details, dusted from my old memories: The protagonist is a hacker-semi criminal/activist. He has a little handheld proto-AI assistant named "Johnny" [kind of like a prophetic Siri], that talked to the protagonist, often saying "yeah, boss?" The Online persona (hacker tag) of the protagonist and AI pair was called "Johnny Johnny" out on the Net (before the internet, point of note) For some reason the French were now the worldwide peacekeeping force, the PK-ers (Peace Keepers) are heavily cybernetically augmented, and hunt people like the protagonist, and well... kill them. They are very real Terminators- specialist investigator/assassins of the Frogs.. the french peacekeeper incarnation of the UN The protagonist is on the run nearly constantly. Over the course of the story the AI Johnny is becoming more and more upgraded and advanced, and at some point reached true AI (the cause of them being hunted?), that was whispering with other hidden AI's out on the Net, discussing what to do about the world/humanity The protagonist winds up fleeing to the moon, for the illegal black surgery Brain Lattice upgrade- literally uploading the AI johnny into his mind- making Johnny-Johnny truly one person. At some point "Johnny? Yeah, Boss? Trash the place. You got it, boss" was said, and the AI is unleashed, and went Public. And great chaos ensues. Anyway. That was the gist of the story. It is becoming more and more interesting to me, as it seemed very, very prophetic of things like Siri and DeepAI stuff going on today. considering this is the time before the internet (late 80s at the latest), its description of recognizable description of things like DDOS net attacks and popup Spam attacks, as well as Cybercrime and intellectual property theft... Even discussions of the very rapid AI processing power and speeds being unable to compete with the much slower but parallel wetware minds' abilities of intuition and creative deception/manipulation (like DeepAI being good at Go but horrible at Quake Tournament?) ...all at a time before the The internet, or even windows operating system was a thing... this vision of the Net and AI makes it a book I truly want to get my hands on again. Just to re read it with todays' point of view in mind. So.. what was name, the author of that book?
