Some of the literati among you may recognize the weird sisters as the witches in Macbeth. The Wired Sisters, obviously, are a cyber-version. At the moment, there are, as in Macbeth, three of them: Red Emma, Jane Grey, and CynThesis. Others may turn up later. Red Emma (named for her icon, Emma Goldman, anarcho-free love advocate of the late 1890s and early 20th century) is the wild-eyed politico. Jane Grey (named for yet another icon, the 16th-century scholar and 16-year-old accidental martyr) is the religious scholar and social almost-conservative. CynThesis is, of course, the personality who tries to work out the conflicts between the other two.
