  Bridge trilogy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bridge trilogy incorporates elements of William Gibson's recurring exploration of the intersection of technology, traumatic change, and cyborg self perceptions.
Two representative examples of the new technology are the nanotechnology-based tunnel that replaces the bridge and the ad-hoc community built on the damaged bridge.
The ad-hoc bridge community is a cyborg since it takes essential structural elements from both the bridge and the people living on the bridge.

 All Tomorrow's Parties (novel) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
All Tomorrow's Parties is the third book in William Ford Gibson's "Bridge trilogy".
The San Francisco Bridge, the overarching setting of the trilogy, functions here as the narrative 'bridge' between these three stories and it is on the (literal) bridge that these individual stories eventually collide.

 Golden Gate Bridge   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The Bridge is 1.22 miles (1970 m) long, the distance between the towers ("main span") is 4200 ft (1280 m), and their height is 746 feet (230 m) above the water.
The Bridge was the brainchild of Joseph Strauss, an engineer responsible for over 400 drawbridges, though they were far smaller than this project and mostly inland.
The center span was the longest among suspension bridges until 1964 when the Verrazano Narrows Bridge was erected between the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City.

 Definition of Bridge trilogy
William Gibson's Bridge trilogy is his second trilogy, after the succesful Sprawl trilogy.
The Bridge trilogy, like the Sprawl trilogy, takes place in a dystopian future, although the world presented there is less advanced.
The books deal with the race to control the beginnings of cyberspace technology, and unlike the Sprawl trilogy are set on the USA's West coast, in a post-earthquake California.

 Bridge to Change
The three novels, Merlin's Parole, The Bridge and Eternity use storytelling to present a worldview, theory and analysis.
In Merlin’s Parole a dreamer recounts one individual's intellectual and experiential journey through the anti-war activism of the Sixties; the counter-cultural movement that found expression at Woodstock; and a kind of one-person demonstration — walking across the United States.
The Bridge continues the narrative through three more transcontinental walks, interspersed with cartoon-like dream sequences that explain how language and other cultural systems impede our efforts to change the world.

 Natalie Portman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the late 1990s, she was cast as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
She placed a priority on her education and pursued tertiary studies at Harvard University even though it had potential to conflict with her acting career.
Portman, still only 14 years old and having never seen the original three Star Wars films, was speculative at first about the commitment she was making and what impact it would have on her life, as the role would ultimately see her participate in three films over the course of a decade.

 Rolling Stone : Billy Joel: The Bridge : Music Reviews
On The Bridge, his first LP of new material in three years, Billy Joel gracefully rounds off the latest – and richest – phase of his tempestuous career.
The album essentially forms a trilogy with 1982's outward-looking The Nylon Curtain and 1983's backward-looking An Innocent Man, offering a modest yet moving portrait of a mature man battling the urban strains of the Eighties in search of both a separate peace and a sense of connection.
It's tempting to read the new-found comfort Joel displays on The Bridge in personal terms – this is, after all, his first album since his marriage to Christie Brinkley and the birth of their child.

 Ivo Andric
Through the metaphor of the bridge, the embodiment of human toil, Andric urged his readers to try to overcome their differences and live in harmony.
Andric structured the novel as a series of vignettes, each one presenting some aspect of life in the town from the time of the bridge's construction to its partial destruction at the outbreak of World War I. The author's personal history also is closely associated with the bridge connecting East and West.

In Count Zero, the second of these novels, an art dealer named Marly Krushkova is summoned from Paris to Brussels to be interviewed for a job by an ultra rich corporate mogul named Joseph Virek.
Then he wrote the Bridge trilogy, Virtual Light, Idoru and All Tomorrow's Parties, which while again full of wonderful images and situations, are less ambitious than the books that came before them.
