pretty sure all of the old guard's moved on at this point.

all that's left are probably qtards and fascists too pathetic to realize the irony behind them being here. oh, and fbi agents, but we already knew that.

i don't have particularly high hopes for the future of this board. chances are it'll be a zombified corpse of what it once was. but for everyone here who helped make /cyber/ great, thank you for all of the threads, the talks, the everything. thank you for helping me feel less desperately alone in this cold, cruel world.

until we meet again, chummers.

Proper cyberpunk clothing gear was examplified with Elliot Alderson from Mr.Robot. Groan all you want, but that's proper cyb clothing.

Blend in with the crowd, keep it simple, carry only the gear you need, and keep the cost of the clothing low.

Blade Runner was made in 1982 and set in 2019, in this period of roughly 40 years, the main tech that has trickled down into the hands of the working man and thus become widespread (accessible) is really just internet based tools like laptops and cell phones.

Cars are only slightly better in safety and performance, mostly they just have cheap tech glued onto them (back-up cams, dvd players, satellite radio, gps touchscreens)

Kitchen tech might be slightly better if you can afford it, but for the working classes it is still electric stoves and refrigerators, the same old thing.

Home tech might be slightly better in the energystar sense, but most working class domiciles have the same stuff they had 40 years ago with the addition of a smart meter.

Home entertainment systems have improved with HD tv's, 8th-gen consoles, and wifi/smart home automation devices (if you are into that sort of thing)

If you are so inclined you might have something like a zoomba vacuum, but most of the working classes (cyberpunk you are here) still have to use the same old vacuum, lawnmowers, washers/dryers they have been for years.

I found myself reflecting on the development of tech in my lifetime, but specifically, that which had trickled down into the hands of the working class. we are a lot closer to Children of Men than we are to Back to the Future 2, or Blade Runner.

ITT discuss the realistic expectations of tech that actually becomes accesable to the working classes in the next 40 years.

yes high speed bullet trains will probably grow along with urban centers. i don't think the controllers will ever let commoners fly. too much freedom, too dangerous, too easy to escape crime scenes. however, skai drones will probably replace helicopters.

i expect augmented reality to become more of a thing in the next decade. either through a cell phone, or maybe some glasses. VR i expect to become more widespread/refined.

Well it is true. But this is because much of the potential of young minds is lured into the "flckring box".

It used to be "more transistors" which led many into nano-tech. Which sounds very schway but it's just smaller. Which diverted many minds into fields of derivative studies occupying them - in hopes for fame and glory.

The same way today "AI" and "Bitcoins" have been burning through talent, now the "better batteries" and "green energy" or "non plastic" idealism will sidetrack many of the minds of today.

Only to back step (see the tendency in the stores: paper bags like the 20s. Cotton reusable bags as way before that. import of electricity as the windmills that burnt through many engineers aren't living up to the dream…)

Same as "sharing knowledge" became "watching other people complain" or watching advertisement and more misinformation.

As long any strategy for advancement of our world and technology doesn't span multiple political terms or generations, we're bound to be stuck in the mind of a "high potential idealistic 20 year old", that knows everything at that age. Where his or her life only consist of a screen and the things you just enumerated.

Think of it this way:

A human life in the western world can cost up to 200k USD to get to age 18, when it needs to be trained to function in a labor environment, which can take additional years and can cost upwards of 10-100k USD, then on top of that, benefits and payments for workers we will simply say 50-150k USD per year.

A robot would take less than 5 years to manufacture, and while the initial cost may be a few million, as more are produced and the process is streamlined, the cost can be reduced to levels that are better than hiring humans, not to mention they do not need sleep, homes, or have families.

The only upkeep cost is maintenance, not healthcare, retirement, taxes, etc.

>>57152

The logistics part that most people fail to even acknowledge is that most of the infrastructure for society has already been put in place, upgrading would mean undoing decades of infrastructure projects to modernize. It is the reason that the USA was one of the last industrialized nations to start issuing chip cards for payment, because POS terminals were almost exclusively mag-strip based.

You can see a similar concept with developing nations being highly developed in mobile phone technologies even when people have basically no idea what the internet is. Tragically, this lead to facebook being a a machine of genocide, because people started sharing hate memes and facebook never deleted them and claims they "just did not understand what the jokes were saying." which caused racial violence to trend.

Countries without a technology will adapt the latest iteration as their first generation technology, while countries with gen 1 technology will spend years trying to get to gen 2-3-4 and so on.

These are not costs paid by companies. A companies might 'train' you for ~2 months before you can work. That's it. The upbringing costs, the education costs etc, are all paid by a third party (usually the family).

I think one of the major hiccups is the lack of energy. We need to be able to produce a shittone of energy, and store it in a relatively small amount of space. Room-temperature super conductors would also be a major step forward.

Nothing stops you, actually, there is homesteading and stuff. Except that communes aren't effective and work without failing on a very small scale.

Homestead, move out, work anywhere different, go to prison(free food, huh), etc. Are these not options for you?

>Still I don't think "the revolution" is coming around the corner, but I do think it's practical to implement anarchies in small local scales at first.

Local anarchies exist everywhere the force and coercion are not involved, actually. Every time you go out with friends it works the same way as in "anarchy". It is not a leftist, or collectivist concept, as they picture it as a virtue and enforce it the same way different socialists enforce "kindness", "belief in god" or any other idea that "seems good". The revolution can only happen if there is support of people towards it, which is very unlikely, at least in the first world.

>anti-state, anti-money, pseudo-anarchist

They do not have any progress to benefit with using money, they are gatherers and cannot read. You can call ants the same this way. By the time they need a new supply of AKs brouzouf become necessary, and are used. There are also theocratic islamist states, but it is just as anti-money as christians were when they were in power. Same "greed is evil" argument and strong regulatory polices. You tell me how good they did.

In Europe, perhaps. That doesn't mean that the meaning of libertarianism is written in stone. Words change.

Not quite. Libertarians generally advocate for a small government, and some libertarians (call them ancaps) want complete demolition of any central governance, and the replacement of the state with capitalism (which may include corporations).

>And history shows that they ally with fascists every time.

Damn, shit got from 0 to 100 very fast. What you said about fascism is completely, 100% wrong, and I can prove it. I will not do so, unless somebody asks me to. Suffice it to say that fascism is more than Italian Fascism or Nazism. But even if fascism meant Nazism, how do libertarians side with that? You said it yourself that

>The "libertarian" right just wants to replace state domination with domination by private cooperations.

So how can a libertarian side with a totalitarian state that controls every aspect of his life? Your are contradicting yourself.

>The point here is that a socialist system can work for a peaceful pseudo-ethnostate made up of Nordic whites. When the Scandinavian countries have been finally overrun with third world migrants, expect this to change.

I believe so as well. Scandinavians are fucking awesome. They are generally smart, with good social skills, good work ethic, etc. They create nice, clean, secure cities. I think Scandinavians can make any system work, whether that system is socialism or capitalism. So, when people use Scandinavians as an example of a successful socialist state, they are being very dishonest IMO. Scandinavians are a homogeneous people with a lot of wealth (from capitalist activities, and the USA). Stop using it as an example of successful socialism.

>likely be thinner than most bullets.

>Having them tumbling through the air would mean they cause more damage to people and make them less likely to penetrate through a wall and hit someone behind.

Nah. The projectile from a rail pistol carry less kinetic energy than a bullet, and be way less lethal. Having a sharp projectile means its areodynamic, and retains its momemntum (and KE) as it experiences drag, but also makes it more likely to peirce clean through a person - which is the opposite of what you want. You want bullets that bounce around and spread inside people cutting them up. Having them tumbling through the air may cause the dart to simply bounce off a person if its not moving fast enough.

Even a CO2, or rubber based mechanism is probably better than rail gun. If rail were a current viable (with small high capacity batteries available), rail might be a preferred technology, having no moving parts would make an incredibly reliable weapon. But the battery limitations make rail vastly inferior for something like a pistol.

I would take an cross bow any day over a rail pistol (except at point blank range, were fast draw matters, and only one shot will be fired).

>It could be boiling the water as it passes

Assuming there's even enough humidity in the air, what you get is a retro steam rocket. That would slow the bullet and destabilize it. Sounds silly.

Even underwater, it seems odd that there's be enough time, pressure and heat applied to the tip of the projectile without any counter effect on its own velocity. The projectile would be moving so fast that you'd be flash-boiling water ahead of it.

>>54816

So the bullet needs to carry its own heater. :p

Or come out from a railgun so it's super hot.

It's been over a year since i've messed with a cell phone and never knew much about them anyways. it used to be you could buy a burner for $20 bucks that came with minutes/texts that also didnt expire every 30 days.

does this still exist?

walmart wants 20-30 for a phone and then 40 (with tax) every 30 days just to be able to text.

i am a vpn user that cannot get on: twitter, youtube, skype, periscope etc etc without providing a cell number so they can text me, which is all i need this for. none of the "free sms texting" sites have ever worked for me.

what is the cheapest solution here? a burner for 55 up front then 40/month? or is there some online text service that actually works? all i need is to verify accounts to get on social media sites.

how does cyber go about this?

For a GMail account you can create one without providing a phone number if you're making one from an Android on Settings>Accounts>GMail.

Best way to do this is downloading VPN Hotspot from F-Droid, make sure your phone is connected to the VPN and then access the new Wi-Fi hotspot on one of those phones Walmart (or any other phone stores) keep available to the public for testing, you can use a single phone to make many accounts.

Also there are many paid burner number services that allow you to create as many numbers as you want from their app, https://www.burnerapp.com/ is one of them. Make sure to check the privacy policies tho, or at least use Shelter to use the app on an isolated work profile

Instead of making a new thread every time you want to share a 水 article, let's just have general thread for all headlines from the cyberpunk dystonia that is our modern world pertaining to interesting happening or the development of new and exciting technologies the gov and corps will utilize to fuck us over

I'll start with a somewhat older news story that sadly broke while /cyber/ was kill

German police bust 'Cyber Bunker' hosting Darknet sites

>German police said Friday they had busted a network hosting so-called Darknet platforms illegally trading drugs, stolen data and child pornography online on servers hidden in a former NATO bunker.

>Seven suspects were arrested in a series of raids Thursday targeting the operators of the "Bulletproof Hoster" service located in what was dubbed the

"Cyber Bunker", police and prosecutors said.

>The servers hosted, or provided the internet architecture for, illegal websites that also peddled stolen data and forged documents, and from which large-scale cyber attacks have been carried out.

Is cyberpunk imageboard culture dead?

/g/punk and Lainchan and /cyber/ were great websites when they first started, but the wave of traffic and fans has long since gone downhill. Is Cyberpunk dying out within imageboard culture? Or is there just less visibility of it due to external factors?

There haven't been many posts on /cyber/ or even /g/'s /cyb/ threads in the past year.

First of all, thank fuck /cyber/ is back. Damn I missed this board when it was gone.

Now, let's talk (and mindlarp) about a cyberpunk city state and how it could possibly be implemented. I'm looking at places like HK, Singapore etc. and going "woah, let's have more of that in the world, except better". This is something we should strive for in the 20's. A place to inspire and lead humanity into the future. A place people can point too and go 'Woah, the future is looking schway as shit' and encourage brainiacs to pursue STEM more because they want to move to this amazing city state and conduct research and feel like they're in the future. I think now more than ever, a cyberpunk city state is needed.

Say what you want about people like Elon Musk but you can't deny the inspiration he gives people (space travel, future tech shit). Now imagine a city filled with scientists, futuristic tech development actively encouraged, cyberpunk aesthetic in architecture everywhere (yes, aesthetic matters). The right kind of people would want to move to this city state in droves.

First of all, location. East Asia seems like the best option. The area of the world is already notorious for being a hive of cyberpunk cities. High IQ populations close by, in a safe part of the world shielded from the societal chaos unfolding in the west. A country willing to sell a chunk of land approx 1,000 km² (HK size) is all that's needed and then development can begin.

Extremely low taxation, no capital gains, sales tax, Minimum wage laws wouldn't exist etc. (to encourage workers and massive investment) and basically a Minarchist government that only enforces the law, courts, immigration etc (not lawless but the government isn't meddling and ruining everything with regulation)

Immigration would be strictly enforced with extreme measures to get in. Nothing like the west currently is. Keeping societal cohesion healthy would be important.

Drugs. I'm no expert but things like microdosing lsd for creativity, focus would be legal.

Yeh probably likely. Minarchism would probably only be temporary as the state rarely chooses to limit or reverse its power. Neocameralism, for-profit sovereign corporations owning the city state might make more sense. Perhaps thats what a cyberpunk city state would best operate under.

Songdo, a work in progress in S.Korea, could have the makings of a cyberpunk city. Unfortunately it doesn't have the appearance of one yet. It's part of S.Korea but is just a huge 'smart city' built by private investors.

>>57169

Yeh post links if you check this. Megacities seem to be the future I agree, that's where the concentration of wealth tends to accumulate and when land is scarce, new buildings tend to go vertical like in HK. Perhaps the next economic crash will drive this even more, even further concentration of wealth and power into megacorps and big gov.

HK is schway but it's a shithole. Why would I want to pay over half my income to live in a cramped cage, packed in like a sardine? it's even worse than San Francisco.

I would love to live in a huge city because it would be schway but the reality is that it's just going to be a shithole and you're going to live like a bugman right smack in the center of a huge surveillance system.

>>57156

architecture-wise I like just standard late 20th century skyscraper design. glass, steel, and concrete boxes.

I really hate that new glass dildo looking building in San Francisco. what an ugly sight to behold. Personally some of my favorite skyscrapers were the World Trade Towers, very simple but also elegant IMO. The Sears tower and Hancock tower in Chicago, too. I also appreciate the Empire State building but that probably has to do more with it's history than it's looks. The Transam pyramid in SF, the Aon Tower and USBank building in LA. Oh, the Citi tower in NYC is neat,too. I guess I have boring taste.

I think HK looks schway due to the density but taken individually the buildings to me are uninspiring.

Also, at risk of sounding like an autist, I really love some of the cities presented in the Halo video games. In the ODST game, the city of New Mombasa is captivating with huge skyscrapers and most importantly interesting public features. I'm talking about lots of elevated walkways, concourses, etc.

The same goes for the city of New Alexandria in Halo Reach. Tall towers with an abundance of helipads, raised monorails and walkways.

I really like the idea of multiple strata in a city. I can imagine a city in which raised walkways and roads are situated above the actual ground level, so not only do you have the street level but you have, higher up, more public space and options for masPost too long.

>raised walkways

Absolutely. I was surprised at how much this added to the cyberpunk feel of a city. Especially when they are added to the sides of buildings and people can effectively walk across the city. I saw it on some city simulation and couldn't believe how much it added. I guess maybe because the upper elite classes are more likely to be above the city lower dwellers or something.

How about we create our own SCP Foundation for cyberpunk short stories or mysterious objects appearing in various places due to a spacetime leak in a dimension which looks like William Gibson's 80s cyberpunk world and also like those cyberpunk anime from the 80s and 90s?
