Trivia

The name "Wilson" is used as a nickname by the main character in William Gibson's Cyberpunk novel Count Zero. The origin of the term is explained:

"A Wilson,"...
The Finn looked at him, blankly. "A what?"
"A Wilson. A fuck-up. It's hotdogger talk, I guess..." Did it again, Shit.
The Finn gave him a very strange look. "Jesus. That's your word for it, huh? I know the guy..."
"Who?"
"Bodine Wilson," he said. "First guy I ever knew wound up as a figure of speech."
"Was he stupid" Bobby asked, immediately regretting it.
"Stupid? Shit, no, he was as smart as hell." The Finn stubbed his cigarette out in a cracked ceramic Campari ashtray. "Just a total fuck-up, was all. He worked with Dixie Flatline once..."

The v2.0 version of this card has different artwork to v1.0, showing the apprentice runner getting his brains fried via a net connection.

No, I have not. The trivia comes from Scott Dickie's site 'Short Circuit' which seems to no longer be online:  http://www.geocities.com/theshortcircuit . I assume the image never made it to print.

In the odd chance that the artist of the Wilson v2.0 is reading this: It would be awesome if we could put a scan of the card on the site.
