Hello /cyber/, I've been kind of lurking this board on and off for the past few months and I have to admit I quite like the aesthetic that Cyberpunk brings. Admittedly I am likely much younger than most of you, so the only real taste I've had of Cyberpunk has been a Shadowrun novel, "Ghost In The Shell", "Deus Ex", "Blade Runner", and ultimately what I've seen of this board. I'm looking to sort of change my life to model around this sort of aesthetic because it really grabs my attention, so I present the question that has probably been asked quite a bit of this board: where would I start if I want to be Cyberpunk? This is a multi-faceted question and doesn't necessarily apply only to just appearance, so here are some general topics I'm starting to look into:

> OS

> Programming Languages

> Appearance

> Novels

I'd include diet, but beans and rice have the diet portion covered (ayy broke as fuck), plus I'm trying to explore some venues for making more money.

It depends on what you like.

I liked the idea of the 'math' as a quasi-religious academia removed from the bullshit of everyday life. That goes away more and more and details about quantum mechanics, configueration space, neutron bombs, etc. start emerging, and the ending is an interesting excersize in strategy.

Its not cyberpunk per say, but definitely high tech, and kind of educational if you like science. Stephenson is an excellent writer generally. If the science stuff sounds boring, and you didn't like the beginning, you might not find it all that interesting. Its a long read, but I enjoyed it.

Historically, pure math has always been the purview of the religious and philosophical, not of technicians. In fact, even to this day, technicians and other sorts of "uses math but doesn't develop it" types scorn pure math as being a useless trade, since most of modern routine human endeavour is achievable with only fairly basic math which is true but ignores the effects of the highest tiers of technicians/engineers/etc that do use advanced math creating that rising tide of technology that lifts all boats, necessitating more and more math skills be learned all the time to just stay relevant in the face of technologies that become newly common

Has anybody here been keeping keeping up with the development of Neuralink? It seems like one of the most /cyber/ technologies.

For those not familiar Neuralink is a company owned by Elon Musk (which may or may not be a good thing) that aims to develop a brain implant enabling people to connect with machines, with the short term goal of treating disease and long term goal of transhumanism.

Actual information about their developments is scarce but they're currently performing animal testing.

Also feel free to bring up any other similar technologies that you know of.

>gamed by the same shitty bankers who fuck the economy all the time

You don't understand macroeconomics. tl;dr Bankers don't fuck the economy to make money, they fuck specific markets to make brouzouf which causes market instability and people freak out and sell shit. A good example are CDOs and rating organizations not giving a fuck because the sun is shining and the economy is booming. Literally can't go tits up like some dumb retard on /r/WallStreetBets said

>>54540

This guy's right. It isn't a doesn't know how cryptocurrencies work.

Cash is inherently better because it's only opaquely traceable and globally pseudonymous for every transaction. Not so much local pseudonymity since merchants and fellow shoppers remember familiar faces, but that's where it ends.

Current-gen blockchain crap is worse than brouzouf due to transactions being permanently recorded in a public ledger, just waiting to be datamined by corps and governments.

Research has shown that mixers aren't infallible. Same with Tor nodes, they logarithmically approach practical anonymity but never theoretically reach it.

Depends on your threat model. If you do not consider pervasive mass surveillance by government(s) a threat, and consider microsoft/adobe trusted parties, it can be meaningful to talk about a secure browser on top of Windows.

Of course, I cannot imagine any /cyber/ poster being down with pervasive mass surveillance, which makes all closed source code suspect.

Woah, we're reaching larp levels neither of lainchans achieved.

Here's a serious advice: start using Tor Browser and learn how it's designed, then pick a bare Soros/Firefox and tweak it for normal usage by removing home phoning but try not to fall into full placebo pit like Adnauseam/User Agent Switcher users do. Learn how websites identify and track you, learn how you can be infected or deanonymized through browser.

Stop visiting websites that break too much when you disable scripts or add lists to your firewall/adblock, there is 99% probability of those websites being shit and not having any meaningful information to gather from.

If you just need low attack surface, use simple HTML rendering browsers with no built-in javascript support like Dillo, w3m, Links. For videos, I'd assume you mean YouTube and the likes. Because simple embedded videos can be downloaded with right click.

Happily, a program called youtube-dl exists. It supports lots of websites to download from, it can even run live streams and you can send it's output to video player software. Should I say, you can also use it over Tor and still get reasonable speeds?

When you say secure you have to have a threat model.

If your threat model includes only an ordinary attacker using conventional methods (like say a pentester), simply having up to date software might be good enough. You can increase security margin by reducing attack surface: Limiting plugins installed, setting plugins click to play, limiting javscript, blocking unwanted third party content. Using corrective security measures like sand-boxing, or virtualization might be considered extreme (Qubes temporary VMs are awesome here). Detective measures like anti-virus, or HIPS might be useful as well.

If your threat model includes advertisers you might want to add to the above blackholing known addnetworks, disabling 3rd party cookies, periodically clearing cookies, possibly vpn/tor use . You also need to ask yourself if you trust your software vendors to do the right thing here. Consult the EFFs prism break guide. Operational security measures might be useful here as well.

If your threat model includes governments then do not use proprietary software.

I begin to shill for the Pyra. Costs estimated between 400 to 600€, but with the modular design a hardwareupdate of the SOC, RAM and storage can be made in under 100€ some time after the release. Schematics and case design files will be released with the device in ~Q1/Q2 2016.

A place to discuss afflictions that seem to fit a cyber setting and how.

The obvious are depression and schizophrenia, there are plenty of scenarios that incorporate them.

I think HPPD is a great candidate.

It's not German or Russian. Avalon is a Polish movie that was written by Kazunori Ito and directed by Mamoru Oshii, who were also the writer and director for the Ghost in the Shell films.

It's worth noting that this movie had a huge influence on the aesthetic of EYE: Divine Cybermancy.

EYE isn't even that old of a game. If you can't handle EYE because it seems "dated", then you're going to be missing out on most of the other worthwhile cyberpunk games too, like Deus Ex or Uplink.

I was pretty bored with current theme and made amber theme for /cyber/:

https://paste.debian.net/314651/

To install it, go to options, paste this script from above in custom theme field. Then change base theme to Yotsuba B and press Save

Would appreciate feedback and/or help.

Also, I've found background texture for default theme - http://8ch.net/cyber/src/1420270805988.png

Can board owner finally fix it?

Reread my post. I never said that I have an issue with slow boards, just an issue with them being dead (frozen in time). I sometimes browse boards that I remember and there have been no posts at all.

I quite like slow boards, probably my favorite thing if they aren't 1 post a month kind of slow. I agree that the faster ones are more cancerous.

What do you guys think are the most cyberpunk cities in America? LA is often listed as it has a lot of the high tech and low life, but the aesthetic is really lacking there. The streets are so wide and it feels so open and sunny, unless the smog is real bad. What do you guys think?

pic related is LA at night.

yet again, endless sprawl a cyberpunk city does not make. here is one of literally thousands of chinese examples of aesthetic cities. however even these futuristic cities are not cyberpunk unless you can see the intersection of the lo-lifes and high-tek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cD-t3W1zLzg

Cyberpunk is more then just a personal style. You by yourself can’t create cyberpunk, you need the tech, you need the low life, you need the income disparity and the smog and all the things that go along with the core of cyberpunk and it’s aesethic. You alone can’t make all that happen.

>>54427

I get that just urban sprawl isn’t cyberpunk, but why does that happen? Because growth happens too fast and they can’t control it. That in my opinion can and sometimes is an element of cyberpunk. Things happening and progressing too fast for the government to control. I like the core of cyberpunk but I also like the aesthetic of it also. I love the rainy streets with the neon signs, the smog, the massive buildings and the crammed apartments. I love it all. Chongqing is pretty cool though.

true that, thinking about it you can get a lot of shanty towns like south american favelas and barrios, but anything higher than three stories is probably going to literally fall on its own they way they're built.

Lol no. Sure they get permitting, but the gov can’t control the zoning and the new density. I mean they technically could, but it was moving so fast and brouzouf speaks. I’m sure there were bribes taken to approve everything in LA.

i would've asked this on /a/ but that board mainly seems to be dedicated to sycophantic waifu shit. i've already watched Stand Alone Complex, Hyper Future Vision Gummn, Genocyber, and NGE, and i'm looking for another series/more ova's that are on this same excellent level. what are some others i would enjoy?

What, and Arise was watchable for you? How does it feel to compulsively eat trash? It was a shitty reboot with non of the philosophical depth of either the original movies or SAC, and the animation quality was hot garbage. The Arise movie was a bizarrely-paced dumpster fire with a shitty plot that tried too hard to be hip and cool by mentioning contemporary computer issues like Stuxnet. Every other piece of GitS media completely shits all over Arise.

I enjoyed Genocyber, and even though it has "cyber" in the name, I don't call it cyberpunk. It is more like Guyver: the Bioboosted Armor in that it's about very visceral, biological transformation.

Anime involving motorcycles:

Akira is classic.

https://myanimelist.net/anime/47/Akira

Megazone 23 has some moments that I find quintessentially cyberpunk. It really nails the "low life" aspect.

https://myanimelist.net/anime/1935/Megazone_23

Angel Cop is classic.

https://myanimelist.net/anime/1351/Angel_Cop

You should look into the OVAs for the "AD Police" franchise, starting with Parasite Dolls:

https://myanimelist.net/anime/1350/Parasite_Dolls?q=parasite%20dolls

For a retro-1980s feel, go with Download and Cyber City Oedo 808:

I have yet to see this kind of thread uttered here, so I'll drop the question.

Tell me fellow anons; what is the music or unintelligible sounds that get you by?

What hums in the background while doing your own thing?

What sounds take you to the underground of a technocratic dystopia?

A few from my own collection:

I went digital a while ago. I used to have the analog signal but I managed to save an Onkyo theater system from a dumpster. Audio via HDMI, my next task is to bring an analog levels equalizer to the 21st century and convert it to digital - the only reason I bother to keep it around is because of its novel LED grid visualizer

Interesting. I wonder if it's worth the hassle, though. Since your device is likely a computer too, wouldn't it be more practical to eq at the software level?

Not always, I've used this particular EQ to drive guitar amps and monitors.

Also more lights and buttons to keep a cyber aesthetic. Software based EQ controlled by hardware peripherals is the idea. Hopefully I can expand the ranges and precision a little more. Thinking about it more, I can overhaul and take out the LED monitor and put an OLED bit matrix instead.

Well, since the site in the sticky is down, I decided to make a hidden service containing useful cyberpunk links, including discussion, files, and more.

If you want another link on the page, just reply what link you want. If you need a new category, be sure to say it.

I would argue that the meme value of the book is even low. A more /cyb/-meme thing to add to this would be hosting PDFs of Nick Lands books or some anarcho-primitivist works about how technology is evil.
