More on Cyberpunk

For no particular reason which is usually the case, I’ve been drawn into the forums at CyberpunkReview.com. I hope it’s interesting. I’m just testing the waters but so far so good.

On cyberpunk

Cyberpunk as a genre, to me, is the consequence of technology that is not your friend. It’s when the “can do” part of invention overshadows the “should do”. A Cyberpunk character is not unlike a drug addict. They are the victims of technology.

The reason I’m writing this is because more and more I’m hearing about cutting edge technology that really should have been science fiction in that bygone cyberpunk genre.

I’m sure this will be a recurring theme in this blog so I wanted to make solid statement of what I’m talking about when I’m talking about Cyberpunk.
