This list is not exhaustive.

Cracked by: udupendra, devadutta, bobo, sidsen and teju.

Answer: The book, “The crying of Lot 49” connects them all.

The Adobe building in San Francisco has a semaphore that’s coding&transmitting this book.
Maas-Neotek from Gibson’s Sprawl Trilogy is a tribute to Oedipa Maas
Nullsoft’s WASTE (by Justin Frankel) is a reference to the postal service W.A.S.T.E
All Star Trek ships have starship drives designed by a company called Yoyodyne Propulsion Systems, named after Yoyodyne from the book.

Udupendra: Yeah, but this had star trek in it. More star trek= more awesome.
