Hey thanks, maybe I should draw something today
This is really interesting. Pretty much anything is cyberpunk today. Circuit-bending a gameboy, telesurgery, spying on people through angry birds, combat drones, mobile phones, hatsune miku — the way people mess with technology and the way technology messes with people is a big cyberpunk thing for me. In a lot of ways, the world is already more cyberpunk than cyberpunk — in many ways, it’s already like a Verne thing. Half the world is constantly online, while the other half is out scavenging electronic parts in mega-dumps — that’s it, that’s cyberpunk.
I probably think about cyberpunk literature the way other people think about Lord of the Rings and stuff — it’s a fantasy world. It’s a total child of the 80’s and it’s beautiful. The real world is definitely a post-cyberpunk place, but I don’t really think about it that much, or if cyberpunk’s coming true or anything. I like daydreaming about brain-jacks and AI’s in alpha centauri, but I never really find myself hoping the real world would be like a cyberpunk book. I’d probably really hate living in the Sprawl.
Hey, thanks man. I did a thing on that here a while ago: http://milonogiannis.tumblr.com/post/69777135280/so-heres-a-real-quick-thing-since-i-get-often-get
Hope that covers it!
