>A luxury hotel in Austria found itself in a bizarre hostage situation recently when hackers managed to access its electronic key system and lock all the hotel guests in their rooms until the hotel agreed to pay a ransom to get its systems back.

>According to The Local, the cyber lock-in happened on the first day of the winter season at the Romantik Seehotel Jaegerwirt, a 111-year-old, four-star luxury hotel that has a pool, lake views, and a state-of-the-art electronic key system that turned out to be something hackers could exploit.

>On the first day of the winter season this year, hackers accessed the hotel’s IT system and shut down everything, including all the reservation info and the hotel’s electronic key system. Approximately 180 people were staying at the hotel that day, and many of them were locked in their rooms, while others were locked out of theirs.

>The hackers wanted 1,500 euros in Bitcoin to release the hotel’s system, and the hotel decided to pay.

>"The house was totally booked with 180 guests, we had no other choice. Neither police nor insurance help you in this case,” said managing director Christoph Brandstaetter.

>After the hackers were paid, the system went back to working as it was supposed to. But Brandstaetter says the hotel is planning on replacing the hotel’s door locks with old-fashioned ones with real keys.

So lately this board has become a whiny place for people to jerk off about CRTs and muh cyberpunk feels.

Are any of you doing anything cyberpunkish stuff irl?

Like urbexing, dumpsterdiving for electronic parts, learning shit about electronics and doing cyberpunk shit with it

I'm building a set of nightvision goggles that's actually properly researched instead of the shit you see on jewtube and instructables.

What are you doing?

So I picked up this book recently from the library entitled The City In The Image Of Man by Paolo Soleri (published in 1969 so you know I'm not a paid shill). It is genuinely one of the most edifying books I have read to date and provides an alternate and enviable branch-away from the dire post-modern timeline we are presently on. To provide a brief synopsis: The ethos behind the civil architecture and philosophy presented therein is that future civil planning should focus on the construction of living, breathing 'organisms' that seek the exist as islands within the context of nature. This is in diametric opposition to our present civil paradigm of layering rurality-suburbia-metropoleis into large amorphous blobs – crocheted blankets of human structures and roads that bleed into one another and fragment nature in the process.

At the start of the book he refers to our present societal vector and how the eventual destination of this vector is an ensuing "Ecumemopoly" that will engulf the earth, choking the remaining breath of life out of an already dying natural world (à la the city planet of Coruscant of Starwars or Blade Runner's approximation of Earth). A perpetual sprawl that will stagnate and cause the early decay of human kind.

The new system that Soleri proposes is called "Arcology". In a move away from the waxed poetics above, an Arcology is essentially a large living complex (encapsulating all the aspects of our present schema for a "city") with a focus on space-time optimization – that is, the utilization of verticality to increase the utility and density of a given living space and consequently reduce the total needed land area. This in turn reduces the travel and communication overhead of the humans that live within these Arcology, bringing them closer together on a literal and existential level.

He didn't expound upon the pragmatics of arcology beyond a general (if encoded esoterically) philosophy but these Arcology would of course be connected to one another and would need the support of surrounding farming and resource extraction systems. Anything they can't collect or produce efficiently would be imported from other Arcology or disparate resource collection settlements and vice versa. Many gPost too long.

I don't know everyone, but I have a feeling that this will only intensify the problems faced by everyday megalopolies. Every time, the population densities increase and I have come to believe that this is the problem.

Then again I can't explain my belief either, its just a gut feeling at this point.


Even from a glance it's possible to see that Soleri's designs take all the worst things from 1960s Modernist planning and amps it up to eleven. It would aggravate every single problem it aims to solve.

- Single-use zoning means that even the most trivial tasks would require people to navigate through a modernist maze of a building. Not only that, but the large amount of people going through zones would put a strain on transport capacity in the building, generating congestion in elevators and corridor and thus increasing the perception of crowding.

- In a place with single-use zoning, and no clear lines of sight towards other zones (as it is a building) it would be practically impossible to come to know the arcology because strolling, i.e. walking aimless from shop to shop, or from any point of interest to any point of interest, is impractical.

- Because strolling is impossible, most of the movement in the city would limit itself in a bedroom-workroom commute among anonymous crowds, because you can't really meet new people if you're always in a rush from and to the same places.

- The lack of places of interest in residential zones would make them deserted during work hours. That coupled with the lack of familiarity among neighbors could make some parts of them criminal havens.

Which is to say that his idea of an arcology is nothing but a suburb, plus a shopping mall, plus a public housing complex all rolled into one. None of these things are wholesome urban developments, so rolling all into one would make a nighmarish urban dystopia. It would be a great setting for a cyberpunk game, but it would be the shittiest place to live.

The entire character of a base and its inhabitants can be absorbed in a quick trip to the Rec Commons. The sweaty arenas of Fort Legion, the glittering gambling halls of Morgan Bank, the sunny lovers' trysts in Gaia's High Garden, or the somber reading rooms of U.N. Headquarters. Even the feeding bay at the Hive gives stark insight into the sleeping demons of Yang's communal utopia.

People were never meant to be crammed together like sardines in a place that artificial for so long. Stress goes up, it's harder to manage, quality of life plummets, and so on. People do best as smaller groups, scattered appropriately and given the chance to be the animals we are. Look at Japan for an example, everyone in the big cities are fucking miserable.

So I go to the electronics district in an exotic Asian city. Lots of neon, a little bit of rain.

I go up to the third floor to meet an eclectic bunch of hackers.

We've got Arabs, Thais, Europeans, Taiwanese.

And what do we do, when we talk?

After five minutes of face-to-face chatting, we all agree that we should work on online lessons.

Then we log into e-learning sites, plug in our earphones, and ignore each other, except for text chat. It's like a library in here, a very well-lit library.

This is not the dingy neon-lit drug-filled nightclub I had been anticipating.

>I think you actually found a remarkable group there, but you still prioritize style over substance.

I'm so fortunate that you can insult me from such a standpoint of superiority.



again with your focus of style over substance

the anon >>46149 tried helping you getting over the meaningless ego tripping of caring about how the book covers look. Never judge a book by it's covers.

There is no "superiority" and ego tripping on anonymous imageboards because there is no ego on anonymous discussions. There is no need of that because it leads to nowhere. It's like stroking your dick with nothing. Anon >>46149 gave serious and honest advice.

Either start becoming serious about this and stop jerking off to mr Robot and Watchdogs 2 or keep being preallocated by meaningless things like "this doesn't look like Hollywood told me that it would".



Dingy neon-lit drug-filled nightclubs make it difficult to work. OpenStreetMap is a really neat project if only for the kinds of problems it has to solve.

I find there's 2 sides to this board, the "nondescript, quite type that doesn't want to be tracked" and then the cultureposters. It really sounds like you're part the the latter group.

Not that I mind culture fags, this whole board is kinda based on fantasy stories after all. I just want somewhere to talk about cool new tech without the political autists that inhabit /tech/.

I hear this political sentiment whenever I try to talk about tech in "cyber" environments

Damn, I tell ya, sometimes I feel like most of these tech talk groups have been co-opted by politically driven people

I want to introduce a new punk to my fellow cybers. Meet adventurepunk. That olive green canvas, jungle exploring, treasure hunting aesthetic that you've been waiting for. I've been a cyber for about 5 years now and I am not tired of it, but it doesn't hurt to switch it up sometimes (especially when and I'm going to be fragged if any of you turn steam.

Not really on-topic for the board, but it's borderline dead here, so I'm not going to complain.

I would say that I hate the name adventurepunk, but the notions of "adventure" and "adventurers" are irrevocably tied up with fantasy RPGs, especially D&D. So while slapping on the *punk moniker is cheap, I guess it works.

And all of that said, I've had a boner for the concept for ages, and finally have a term for it. I'll do some digging later on to try and find some suitable material.

Also, no matter what the /v/ hipsters say, Far Cry 3 was an excellent game. The ones that followed, not so much except Blood Dragon, that shit was a blast




These guys are on point. You're only going to antagonize people for no real reason if you insist on the "-punk" affix. And youd whould add the Indiana Jones films and games to your list.



Yes, this is a little soft, but I still enjoy it and need to expand the list.


Probably 2 of my favorite Western animated films. Atlantis is also good.


I'm glad people aren't too pissed about it, but I wasn't sure where to start getting people to discuss this. I think it can be a thing once it gains traction.

I have a lot of nonfiction (books, dvds) like this. Ranging from crank stuff about lost treasures/cities to legit material, like vid related, which is Robert Young Pelton's series from the late 90/s early 2000s that influenced Vice's docos.

I can make a large list for you if you are looking for something less fiction-y.

Hey, anyone here use GNUsocial?

It's a federated microblogging platform that's closest to Twitter in terms of functionality. Users on one instance of GNUsocial can interact with users from any other, so your only concern when it comes to picking a place to make an account is personal preference, and as free software its also possible for anyone to host a personal instance. This makes the service censorship resistant.

If you're already using it somewhere else, feel free to post your profile so you can gain some followers and friends. If you're not, feel free to check out my instance at https://unsafe.space, which is based on Qvitter. I'm hoping to find some people posting schway content.

I think that may be a problem with Unsafe Space, since I'm able to read posts but can't post. Don't know if you tried it with another instance however.

Try Twidere instead. It doesn't support stuff like multiple timelines, but at least it's a bit less wonky than AndStatus. Just be sure to click on the server icon, point to the API (your.server.url/api) and set auth type to basic.

I've finally got my own room that I can change/alter anyway I want,i'm trying to get a good cyberpunk vibe/theme going

Everything I've read said back/mood lighting is key & fog would be too much dank smoke should be enough anyway

So i'm looking to get some led lights to give it that dark glow feel,multi monitor setup,etc

but I'm having trouble finding those flat led panels like in cyb.jpg and one of my walls is weird fake wood paneling

any thoughts on what I can paint the wood and walls and where to find those kind of leds? There's also a large double mirror leading to a walk in closet idk what to with.

>placing form over function

>not cyberpunk



Youve got it backwards chum.




>not making both roughly equal

I've thought about doing a simpler version of >>37938 on the inside of the Jinteki rack. Normally purple since the rack itself is black, but set up Nagios to change to red if there's an outage.

That would require a good monitoring box, though, and I haven't bothered standing anything up.






If you've got the brouzouf and space, you should use either a 70s tv (found a 30 inch with wooden frame and dashbuttons at good will for 5 fucking dollars that works) or a larger black JVC type deal and get the proper adapters to attach a home theatre PC to it (If you wanna go super-cyber use the slim cases from the 90s or the new mini-cases). CRT monitors- including those personal monitors with scanlines are pretty fucking cool for the lo-life aesthetic but they're expensive, so I just go with the TV.

If you're willing to modify technology that's officially classic, you could try a darker finish/putting metal and LED backlighting on it, but the benefit of CRT and most old movies is the isolated lighting and sound it produces. It's like a record player, in where the light static in the background tends to null ambiance and make the movie easier to focus on.

If you do want lighting, I recommend blue to match the static glow of the TV and give the atmosphere a darker, cooler color. You probably won't find proper blue lightbulbs that don't look like rave retardation so make it a secondary lighting to regular bulbs if you have a ceiling fan because blue light is shit for seeing stuff unless it's like 4 billion lumens.

After that? Lay your mattress on the floor and find some monitor arms to mount your computer screens, get a big ass keyboard like the scorpios, hang up some of those picture slideshow frames and drink chocolate milk straight from the half-gallon.

If you're good, you could even technically mount a smaller screen above your bed (on the ceiling) and watch TV while laying down. I've always wanted to do that but I just threw a tapeplayer and a 12 inch at the foot of my bed instead.

Smoke is good, just make sure you have proper exhaust in either a window or some sort of open door and don't heat shit by your computers. My sister bought this gay little orb thing that changes like a lava lamp while dispensing incense, you could sup one of those up or something.

It isn't like a Nigerian prince scam, it's a virus that gets in your system (either willfully or without your notice) and encrypts all your shit so you can't use it (puts it up for ransom where we got the name), even sometimes hacking BIOS so that you can't format the drive.

I have a suggestion for a community project we can realize.

Look at this picture. Would you say this is in line with the cyberpunk mindset? I think so. Moreover, there are quite a few things we can agree on about what would be cyberpunk (do you use windows? do you encrypt your email?), and even on some we can't agree, there are a few definite stances (like in cyber effay).

I am inspired by this post >>42101, where he asks how to adopt the cyberpunk way for his own. Now there may be a lot of differing opinions on what would be cyberpunk, but as I suggested earlier, there is also some of a background to all these stances.

Even more, I think cyberpunk includes thinking for yourself, so that no set of guidelines as to what cyberpunk is would be appropriate, but rather an inspiration for people to adopt more of the cyberpunk style and adapt them to their lives, just like the poster I mentioned.

That is my suggestion, to make a document for "A Cyberpunk Philosophy" (notice it's not "The"). Where we compile all this stuff that is currently either scattered or simply not laid down anywhere. Hacking, hardware hacking, textpunk, low life, all relative topics we can think of should be touched in it, if only to make a fun read.

Ultimately the purpose for this is to have fun, and to make something as a community, to contribute to the general cyberpunk scene in our own unique way.

How to do it? Well, first I'd like to know if you guys think this would be a good idea, if we are going to have some participation.

Anyone can contribute, write about any subject you like, and it'll be a candidate for the final work. I'll open a git repo for it if there's enough interest to get it done. And then we can select what the best content would be and finally typeset it and publish it in any format you like.

Who's in?

>most things are cheaper to replace by design. Unless you own a factory and have connections to suppliers, chances are, the components in a device you have would cost more than the actual thing due to economy of scale. Everything is unibody, soldered in, wrapped in warranty stickers and deliberately designed to be replaceable. It's quite sad. The worst part is that if you try to avoid this by buying only old shit, you will lose in the long run

Stow that defeatist talk, hacker.

Open Technology is a movement.

Planned Obsolescence will fall.

This is a war.

We need your effort, not your quitter attitude.

All the components we need are made in the initial production run. 'Broken' phones tend to have plenty of working parts - by cannibalising a few, you can repair the rest. We simply need a strong anti-consumerist counterculture: get people used to sending broken devices in for repair, or selling them for parts, and only getting a new model when their old one is truly bust. Obviously we're running up against a barrage of psychological weaponry (i.e. advertising) here, but there's plenty of anti-establishment sentiment right now. We just need to harness some of it.



Anti-establishment doesn't transfer to anti-consumerism. There is no big perception that Apple, Google or Samsung is doing as much damage to an individual as his government. It's probably not the place to look for an argument if you want to start convincing others.

Forced mainstream popularity for repairing can be done only through limited supply. In USSR that was exact situation, with people learning how to work through existing tech because getting replacement was hard if not impossible (e.g. cars). As market economy emerged these self thought repairmen opened up corresponding businesses, such as car repair shops, Tv set, radio repairs. However with enough supply and brouzouf to spend some of these eventually dwindled down.

This can be fixed with extensive propaganda, and many anti-establishment people already don't trust large corporations.

There's a reason I love pic related, and it's because of 2nd pic related.

Yes, there are still brands out there that are willing to give you exploded views 'n shit if something breaks.

I love my 16004. Almost 23 years old and it still works like new
