Actually, this is probably a reference to Cory Doctrow's novel, Down and Out
in the Magic Kingdom. Its sort of a future/cypherpunk/? novel.

The book can be downloaded for free at http://www.craphound.com/down/, or
purchased from all of the usual haunts. I have the e-book, but while it is on
my list, I haven't read it yet. His second book, Eastern Standard Tribe is
available in much the same manner, at http://www.craphound.com/est/
