>3) Is Network 23 an allusion to Warehouse 23?
Not even close. It comes from the show Max Headroom: Twenty Minutes Into the Future. The short run show, actually intended to build a backstory for the annoying virtual man, actually turned into one of the hardest edged cyberpunk shows ever produced. IMHO, it died because of the title character.
I put a primer over here.
