In the last few years, sites have appeared such as Orion's Arm and Galaxiki, which encourage collaborative development of science fiction universes. Why has Gibson invented the term "nighted"? "Le Monde" is French for "The World." "Old money" means wealth combined with social status in old families such as the Rockefellers. "Old credit" would be mean the same in a culture where physical money no longer has a function.
