"The idea I want to push next is that the United States should make Siberia a Protectorate. Pay the Russians off – a hundred, two hundred billion dollars – and simply run Siberia in an ecologically responsible way."
This piece of technovelgy is the ultimate in mixed media. Not only do you have the usual items, text reports and photographs along with video recordings of the subject, but actual life experience of the person. In order to experience a biosoft, you need to "jack" it directly into your brain (the expression derives from "phone jack", the connector that you used to plug your phone line into before you got your cell phone.)
A biosoft is apparently not arranged in an ordered sequence; but neither is your life. One of the characteristics of people who request detailed biographies of others (particularly in a business context) is that they are looking for control and want to experience everything being in their control. This bewildering fountain of experience might be too chaotic for such individuals, but if you really want the flavor of the person, you may need to relinquish control.
