A term from Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. It is meant to be a person who is decked out in computer gear such that they are able to catalog all data collected through their senses as well as get data that is useful to whatever goal that they have. The main difference between the system the gargoyles use and everything, is that everything:

  • isn't noded directly by people wandering around (for the most part)
  • has more sarcastic ego boosting waste
  • does not have any information that might be useful for someone trying to figure out the link between an ancient babylonian mythos, a religion, and an intellectual disease
