Top ten novels that predicted the future

At the Guardian, Andrew Crumey listed the top ten novels that predicted the future.

One book on the list:
William Gibson: Neuromancer (1984)

That's right, cyberspace. The year that saw the first Apple Mac go on sale was also when Gibson unleashed the idea of people plugging themselves into a virtual-reality matrix.
Read about another title on the list.

Neuromancer also appears on Annalee Newitz's list of "Thirteen Books That Will Change The Way You Look At Robots."
