new emo is what you get when teenagers see punk and metal kids and try and be what they *think* they are. buying pre-ripped jeans and a pre-patched and studded vests is like the antithesis of punk.

also, even the name emo is a co-opt of something else. when i was younger emo was more like what people call indy now. sweater vests, buddy holly glasses listening to the promise ring…

America 2019: Net Neutrality has failed and the ISP's own goddamn everything. Content, transmission: they own it all. They charge you double to access parts of the web they don't like.

In this potential dystopia world, how does a schway cyberpunk circumvent the restrictions of the corporatists to access the internet?

Meshnets? The old stand-by's of Tor and a VPN won't help you here (they'll just block 'em). In this hypothetical dark age of the internet, how would you fight the corps and circumvent this egregious offense to freedom of information? It may not be long until we can't access 8ch anymore; now's the time for a solution.

If it rolls that far downhill they'll get their asses torn to ribbons. The reason the world isn't full nightmare yet is because if they don't handle it properly they'll get raped. I don't know what the answer is but, net neutrality wasn't a super save the world issue like people were saying. It's monopolies and the inability to set up competing, private ISP networks as well as the government's hand in communication services as a whole.

It was nice to look at though I must admit.



Saw it. Came out pretty happy. Aside from the great audiovisuals, I think it's the best movie of 2017. The last 1/3rd went into sort of hollywood mode, probably as a need to tie up the plot, but the first 2/3rds was great.



>british teefs

>looks even more autistic than gosling

>speaks awkwardly like an announcer from scammy crowdfunding campaign video

>that guy is an actual director

Having a glimpse of few flashes from the actual film, did they unironically pick 90's sci-fi aesthetics for it? Also, first anime short gave me Animatrix flashbacks.



This is the impression I got. I was really surprised at how not shit the movie was. The last third or so had shit pacing but the rest of the movie was great. Really hit all the right notes, had the right vibes. Atmosphere was spot on. Can't remember the last time I legitimately enjoyed a movie like this.

Originally saw this "leak" posted on /v/. All of this is unverified right now, but the concepts presented here seem solid. The /v/ thread was targeted by D&C shills within minutes and the whole thing went to shit almost immediately.

A few things I want to point out here:

1. The AI apparently uses voice analysis to determine things like mental state, a history of responses to in-game events and content, and (for women) menstrual cycle

2. The AI will use this data to craft user-specific marketing, and determine what time is best to present these advertisements to players

3. One suggested tactic is to have an AI-controlled user in an MMORPG pretend to be a player and manipulate other players into buying microtransactions (for example, by bragging about finding good drops in pay-to-play dungeons

4. One slide talks about "Out-Of-Home advertising", which combines things like cellphone location, facial recognition, and internet-connected advertisement platforms (e.g. billboards, in-restaurant TV screens, etc) to present user-tailored advertising. I think that this has been discussed here before so it's interesting to see it included here.

5. Another slide discusses using AI-controlled accounts and bots on various types of social media sites, including imageboards.

So tell me chummers, have any of you ever hacked into a system IRL?

I done some dumb stuff, mostly pranks like making people think I deleted their data or changing passwords on wifi networks, mostly to send the message that they need to stop halfassing their security and learn the basics, but no actual harm done

Right now I want to do something bigger: I'm suspecting someone at my college staff is changing grades of students. I don't know if he does it for brouzouf from idiots who need to pass but can't be arsed to study, or if he does it out of spite, who knows

But its beyond my current abilities

Anyway how about you?



Ignore this post it was supposed to be a thread and I fucked up

>inb4 deleted

>someone mentioned that businesses that dropped advertisements didn't see a significant drop in sales

Any good scientist can tell you the big issue in this statement. A company dropping advertisements is a company that ran advertisements, so it's not a great control.



>How the fuck you do that?

Were we in a period of time in which mechanical, genetic, etc human augmentation were a thing, what would you want and why?

In my case I would want firstly to replace my right arm from the elbow down. I'd keep the mechanical aug angular and modular, preferably with an integrated double action OTF blade installed in the wrist and the option to place data storage devices in it as well as a small videoscreen. After all, why not be able to use it as a small computer and maybe a replacement for a cellphone? I would also want to genetically harden my skin, at least enough to turn or slow a blade.

I have had some nerve problems in my right hand for some time now, and would simply like to be rid of it. Might as well replace the forearm while I'm at it if it means I can have more usefulness out of the thing don't you think?

Adam jensen actually bitched a lot about his implants because he literally didn't want them but he was totally crippled after the attack and his contract had a clause that he would be augmented if necessary.

It is never said it he would've preferred to spend the rest of his days on life support or plain dead tho.

As for your theories I think that if full-body cyborgs like in GITS become a thing then trannies are gonna have a field day that. In the SAC series there's an ep where this guy who constantly moves between male and female bodies. So basically you can be in a cyborg replica of your current body (or your actual body, they never said if you couldn't just transfer your cyberbrain back to your meatbag body) and whenever you feel like sucking a dick or getting DP'd you can transfer to a 10/10 anime girl body like the major's and getting your robot snatch pounded.

That would suck for guys tho since how the hell you can tell who's a dude anymore? forced gender RFID tags on cyberbrains? SJWs would demand those be banned.



He would probably just get the full-robot (no meat brain) catgirl since fucking a cyborg with a dude's brain still makes you technically a faggot



By that point we will have ascended our need for physical interaction with others and we'd just go into VR to bang our digital waifus

What body Improvements are already availible to us?

So far I found


1. Magnet in your finger
Insert a neodimuium magnet under you skin.
You will be able to feel magnetuc fields.

Costs: 200$ if you go to a professional doctor, 20$ and a bottle of vodka if you do it yourself at home.

Pros: You can easily percieve if a wire alternate current is cicrulating.

Cons: If you screw up the operation or it get infected AND you don't go to medic soon you can loose a finger. A MRI scan will tear the magnet from inside you.

good link, but trying to get alien genes to "take hold" in your cells, even though an article says he did it, I think the way easier approach will be to take genes for some compound you want, like whatever that fatty omega acid is in fish, and shove that into yogurt microbes for example, so as they grow they put out that compound and you get better nutrition. Or, the show Mr Robot has a character growing yeast that fart out THC.

*I'm a gamedev and the core conspiracy of my storyline is that in the future, countries like Ivory Coast will be hugely destabilized by this technology allowing coaco compounds, for example, to be produced at industrial scale in vats, causing 1/4 of the Ivory Coast economy to crash. Or Saffron in the middle east, etc*


She stored Steam keys for Deus Ex to give out, I think.



>How do probiotics get the genes out of the test tube and into a functioning living organism?

You make the bacteria produce something that will be absorbed by the body. If you wanted muscle growth for example you could make the bacteria produce a Myostatin Inhibitor.



Somewhat similar, as a type one diabetic I've wondered if some sort of controlled insulinoma (tumor that results in excess insulin production) could be used to produce a basal amount of insulin. Of course, that'd mean either having a tumor inside you by choice, or having it outside your body for ease of control, which isn't much of a benefit over insulin pump therapy.



How about microbe in your gut that generate insulin? would that work?



It would be very difficult to do that in the gut. You would need the microbes to produce just the right amount of insulin at the right time. A better idea might be an insulin pump with a bioreactor attached to it.

>You want to look smart, say something original instead of looking down your nose at Intel or the EU or whoever else is pissing you off.

you getting paid by Intel to be here or what? they fucked up big time and deserve the reaction they're getting.

there's also plenty of evidence to suggest they were aware of the issue before it hit the news - Intel execs were dumping stocks like mad last year.



For dumping stock they should go to jail. But for not finding a bug that's been present since 1995? It did take the entire security community 20 years to find it, so no, I'm not going to blame Intel for that.

Anyway, you're missing the point. This guy shows up and tells someone to gas himself for going to a website that's not on this random dipshit's personal list of approved locations. What a fucking gem. What a guy. So since people can change I suggested he broaden his horizons, up until he made it clear he was just here to argue with people, which I will admit should have been obvious from the outset. And now you figure Intel is paying me to come and start flamewars on a forum with maybe 50 people on it. Ok champ. You got me. I get 6 cents and a pack of Juicy Fruit every time I mention Intel.

I'm aware this may seem like a silly question, but I'm really curious. /Cyber/, would you consider Alex Jones as a cyberpunk? Before you answer, remember that he is against the establishment, he sees most corporations and government as corrupt and evil, he takes his agenda to the net and he is quite paranoid, all the qualities that make up a cyberpunk, with aesthetics aside.

So, out of curiosity, would you say so? Also, would the same go for wistleblowers like Assange and Snowden?

Talking about what ?



coders who don't code, anarchists living in their mom's basement, hardware hackers who can't solder …

The usual /cyber/ crowd

The reason this place is dead is because it's action packed with people who don't do anything.



I'd be up for this, alas my internet speed is too abysmal to stream myself. We used to do it every Sunday I think. Those were really good times.



were your legs ok?


this isn't much different than other cyberpunk imageboard communities I've seen in the past ~10 years. I think the big difference now is (and I know we're all tired of people saying this) cyberpunk has become reality rather than fiction. People come here to escape their lives, not be reminded that Apple is throttling their phones to sell new product and Amazon is recording everything they say with their in-home surveillance device.


community events would be nice

That isn't even remotely true. No one even has even measured the Fed (US) ever, and they essentially control the rest of the world atm.


Its interesting that a populist argument against coins is that they're dangerous because they're anonymous/untraceable, but really its brouzouf thats anonymous and untraceable. With bitcoin everyone can see who you sent how much to, and when. So it makes sense that governments would want to transition to their own cryptocurrency because taxation could be built right in, as well as keeping track of who sent what to who.

As for normie adoption, if its as simple as swiping a card, that seems painless enough. I think Russia also announced it was starting its own national coin. Its funny that a technology born out of cipherpunks might just become a more effective tool of authority.



>really its brouzouf thats anonymous and untraceable.

You have to spend brouzouf in person and limited by your geography.

There're IDs on paper and checks.

Money tend to leave the trail one way or another, and how to anonymize wealth was a big question for criminals long before invention of transistor.

Blockchaincoin vs brouzouf is more about tradeoffs, and they are more or less equal in anonymity compared to usual online banking with Visa/MasterCard.

So, if government really wanted to deanonymize everyone for sure, it'd push for more of those. Otherwise their attempts to get on a blockchain hype train looks exactly like that.

>I don't know what it is and what it does, but everyone is joining in so I should too

Maybe they just want to launder some brouzouf too.


Russian government acts like someone with split personality disorder. They say they will bring country into the new digital age one day, and then talk about cutting the internet cord the next.

So all this apocalyptic fearmorgening was for nothing.



It's basically a lie

4chan was being DDoS'd, ATT blackholed 4chan for many of their customers to stop the attack, allowing other users to access 4chan. ATT is pretty retarded but they did the right thing. This kind of thing is allowed under net neutrality rules anyway.

Every case of 'b-b-b-but the ISPs did evil things' is misrepresented to make people upset about NN being repealed. It's not really good for regular people, but neither is it noticeably bad.

On the one hand, this is terrible. On the other hand, I sort of want to say 'That's it, keep pissing people off, and see how that works out for you.'. The status quo was bad, but not bad enough to spark any real dissent.

This might be the spark we need.
