Hi guys! Just wanted to say a few things (mostly about technos):
Not sure about 5E or Anarchy, but in 4E firewall is willpower, so a lot of different elements make more sense (like infusion, etc). Though the prevalence of logic is still quite real.
As for Diffusion and Pulse Storm, it would seem natural that Pulse Storm would be an aggressive, obvious attack on your target, whereas Diffusion should be more “sly”, not necessarily raising all the red flags in whatever place you’re messing with?
I do wish techno Firewall was Willpower in Anarchy – however it is Log+Log in the book.
As for Pulse Storm v Diffusion, you do make a good point that Diffusion is definitely more sly when it comes to the narrative. However the wording implies more limited practial use than Pulse Storm. Your mileage may vary – just make it work with your narration!
