Excellent Friday topic.
I'm sure it's a theme in several scifi stories I've read.
For one: Snow Crash <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_Crash>
I vaguely remember others too.
You can download some for free!!! Surprisingly the site doesn't
mention the quantum energy benefits! One of them sounds like putting
your head next to a helicopter another like being on the side of a
busy highway. After about ten minutes of that I think I'd rather eat
my own head.
Can't see why this is "digital" in particular. Maybe someone is
trying to sell something?
