i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?

>The ball has already started rolling
>AAA-Studio making Cyberpunk Games

There have always been Cyberpunk Videogames from major publishers. Especially when looking at the releases from the 80s/90s the ball seems to have slowed down a whole lot. Right now it gets a little momentum again compared to the last 5 or 10 years but it's far from where we've been.

Same with movies. There were so many big Cyberpunk Movies and Anime. BR2049 however was a financial desaster so the big studios won't look at Cyberpunk for a while. Right now we'll get some B-Movies on Netflix if anything (which I'd be fine with as long as they have a good story).

But I completely agree about what you say about people of course. The more people join a movement the more shallow it gets, unfortunately. Just look at the stuff on r/cyberpunk to see what the mainstream is taking away from this, for many it seems all of this boils down to some rainy neon city photograph and the occasional "dude wearing vr glasses with some cables" illustration they watch on their iPhone.


I think Cyberpunk 2077 is unique in that it has the word itself all over it. Usually when someone unaware of cyberpunk culture consumes cyberpunk themed media, they don't know about it and they don't really care. It's a game that will without a doubt reach a massive audience and at least in some degree cause people previously unaware of cyberpunk to get interested. In what degree, I'm not sure but my previous post would be a kind of "worst case scenario".
About BR2049, I think it was a nice movie (though, my favorite part was when it finally ended and I was able to pee, protip: don't drink +1liter of something right before a ~3 hour movie in a theater). I think its lack of success was mainly because of its slow pace which is a big no-no nowadays especially when the trailer makes it look like your basic Hollywood action film.


>cause people previously unaware of cyberpunk to get interested.

I already hate that they named it that way. try searching for "Cyberpunk" on Youtube. It's all about this game now. It's probably gotten even harder to find any other cyberpunk thing now.

I think that cyberpunk is not about augmented bodies. It's high teck technology that is so unevenly distributed, that someone might live in luxury smart home like in latest Bladerunner, and some 100 metres in other house people would hardly make a living. And it is now.
Like Gibson said: "The future is here. It’s just not widely distributed yet."
All technologies are available now, but are not so widely applicated. They may have improve living of 100s millions of people, but we have failed that up to now.


Nice video!

Thanks for these, pretty sweet. But do you remember the link for the imageboard? I'd love to check the archives and see how it compares to places like these.

And there also was this unique terminal-like board, which is dead now as well:

Where are you from and why are you interested in deep russian-speaking cyberpunk culture?


Thanks for the links, mate.

Cyberpunk music? Yeah, we all know synthwave but what else do you think would fit into a cyberpunk setting/universe?


First song. 1:11 onwards. Very much like neotokyo soundtrack


You might recognize the MacInTalk/PlaintTalk voice…

There was a strange asian news show playing at a noodle shop I ate in earlier today. Half the screen was taken up by subtitles in fifteen different languages, and the anchors had the kind of engineered persona you'd expect to see in a religious recrutment video or a piece of wartime propaganda. I assumed it was created by some enviromentalist organization since the news stories seemed to revolve around animal rights (it was a vegan place and the owners where chinese so it would make sense that they would want to play that).
They where talking about disaster relief after an earthquake in japan when they said "The victims of the disaster where grateful to the supreme master for sending her blessing". I then noticed that the channel was called Supreme Master TV. Later on they had a montage of people from different countries singing about how the supreme master cured all their problems. All those subtitles? They where the languages of every country that has followers of the supreme master. I did some research on the supreme master later. She is a vietnamese spiritual teacher named Ching Hai. Turns out she founded the restaurant chain. I looked at the logo for the restaurant, it contains the supreme masters symbol. They where good noodles, would go there again.


Weird. As a Vietnamese, I haven't heard of her.

spooky D:


i used to hang around on there a lot, the people are nice.. this is one of the screenshots i took back then


Seems interesting, I will definitely do some exploring.


Worlds can be spooky, I once was wandering all night there. Met a guy with very weird, spider like avatar and he showed me some stuff. Most people just stand and do nothing tho.


Have you ever dumpster dived and picked up any schway shit? I built my first 2 computers out of parts I found on street.

>>487How many thefts do you think are done by picking locks?


some! depends on the strength of the door jamb/steel door etc. in a regular house usually a good crowbar (strong legs) will work


>>210Lucky! I would love to find some great parts in some dumpsters around here. But I live in a small redneck town where no one ever even got into computers yet now everyone has to have a damn smartphone.The only interesting find I've ever had in a dumpster is a nice bowling ball that I decided to throw off a building and let it roll into oncoming traffic just out of sheer boredom.


i found a laser.


I wouldn't recommend taking lockpicking tools, getting caught with them isn't fun.

Late nights suck. I'll be looking into c programming later for sure. It's been awhile you could say. Patience is the virtue to have these days. Sometimes difficult, though always necessary.I've met someone. I distance myself for a multitude of reasons, but the foremost being I don't dare hurt them like so many others.This is real guilt unfortunately, not put upon by the forcefulness of codependency, so not a write off.I know full well the nature of my monstrosity, and I've burned so many bridges getting here.I don't want or need answers/help/care, just spaces and there just isn't any room for it where I am.


Just got a postcard from South America. I don't speak Portuguese but I could learn.When I drop all this gear and learn to travel light. I'm trying.Hope you're well.


As the snow falls on Christmas Eve, I have an update. Spreading wifi nodes through battery operated routers with a refreshed power and password list should be fairly doable, but i lack h/w to test. Openmaps api could be useful but gmaps is mature.Could just be a highres image with a legend too. Getting chased around by security was fun the other night as i grabbed some more files for sifting.Found a few hideyholes while out too but it was late and my camera sucks. Will upload if interesting.Need work soon and i hope my friend stays in contact. Wish i could offer more support, things are hard/busy here. Merry Christmas Lainons.


Hi. Haven't given up on this place yet. Everything is temporary anyway. I'm attracted to the idea of working in a team, each of us covering each other, in terms of digging and infosec. I'm working on it slowly. Once I have work my stress level should go down, and I can make more time. I do better under structure, my own too, and if I have a monetary stream I can do more.One of my team members I have history with, this is both a block and a plus. I need strategies to deal with that, so I don't fuck up again. Some others are local, one I don't trust or understand lol, but eventually, we'll parse each other or part ways. There's another programmer in the area that I'm reaching out to.I hope koi doesn't shit this up like the discord, but whatever is in the cards, I guess I'm prepared for the worst. I'm cool with elsewhere too, this was just convenient and not under lens.Bye for now and thanks for all the fish


>>824In what ways have I shit up the Discord if I may ask?And I'm trying to keep the new Wirechan as close to this one, with changes of course. But I want it to be appealing.You can reach out to me, I guess?




>>32I've had that lain image as my desktop background for a very long time


It makes that i want to connect.


i saw that the other day on lainchan.jp


my desktop. it's not Lain, but i still like it.
