Cyerpunk SCP

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?

UPDATE: now voting on the organization's name. Details at >>54509. Get in here, chummers

FAQ

>What is cyberpunk?

Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a future setting, noted for its focus on "high tech and low life". It features advanced science, such as information technology and cybernetics, coupled with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order. - wikipedia

>What is /cyber/?

/cyber/ is a board on 8chan devoted to the Cyberpunk genre, setting, and ethos.

>I want to post "x". Is "x" cyberpunk?

Lurk for a bit and ask yourself if you think users here would like it.

>What are the specifications for banners and flags?

banners should be 300x100 png or gif. file limit must not exceed 750kb

flags must be 20x11 png. Flags should be clean and legible on a dark background.

How would you beat a Chinese surveillance state?

>What may sound like a dystopian vision of the future is already happening in China. And it’s making and breaking lives.

>The Communist Party calls it “social credit” and says it will be fully operational by 2020.

>Within years, an official Party outline claims, it will “allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step."

>Social credit is like a personal scorecard for each of China’s 1.4 billion citizens.

>In one pilot program already in place, each citizen has been assigned a score out of 800. In other programs it’s 900.

>Those, like Dandan, with top “citizen scores” get VIP treatment at hotels and airports, cheap loans and a fast track to the best universities and jobs.

>Those at the bottom can be locked out of society and derezzed from travel, or barred from getting credit or government jobs.

What are some tactics etc to deal with such a state? Assuming you get a low ranking, how would you operate?

Privacy Coins Will Lead to Robust Black Markets

You should be reading the deep thoughts available at:

https://opaque.link/

Here's a sample from their latest:

Three main risks present themselves for Dropgangs:

Cryptocurrency tracing: Since all payments are conducted with cryp-

tocurrency, the use of “Privacy Coins” has established itself within the

Dropgangs. However, customers usually only have less private currencies

available. This requires a functional exchange infrastructure between less

and more private cryptocurrencies. This vector of attack is currently

exploited by law enforcement.

• Communication tracing: Dropgangs necessarily operate infrastructure to

keep in contact with their customers. Law enforcement can potentially

identify and track this infrastructure to find the operators. However,

operators usually have access to sufficient anonymization technology and

are well trained in using it.

• Surveillance of potential dead drop locations: Potential dead drop locations

can be identified and surveilled by law enforcement to find those serving

them. This poses a number of problems for law enforcement. First, the

number of potential dead drop locations is very high which requires a lot

of resources to surveil to even catch anybody by pure luck. Second, it is

hard to distinguish customer and supplier at this moment if the dead drop

operator uses basic protective tradecraft.

It is likely that the black market will solve the cryptocurrency tracing risk

soon. Technology in this field is developing quickly. It is likely that either new

exchange methods are found, like peer-to-peer decentralized on-chain swaps,

or that additional privacy layers are added to less private cryptocurrencies.

Cryptocurrencies like Beam and Grin both provide a reasonable amount of

privacy while also supporting atomic on-chain swaps between them and widely

accepted cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

The other two risks are already handled well by professional operators in the

field.

In the Beginning was the Command Line

What do you guys think of the Stephenson Essay "In the Beginning There Was The Command Line…". This should be mandatory cyberpunk reading. Stephenson is a masterful author, his anecdotes, and thoughts are compelling, although I don't think he gets it all quite right.

>http://cristal.inria.fr/~weis/info/commandline.html

>the hacker understands why Unix is the way it is, and agrees that it wouldn't be the same any other way. It is this sort of acculturation that gives Unix hackers their confidence in the system, and the attitude of calm, unshakable, annoying superiority captured in the Dilbert cartoon. Windows 95 and MacOS are products, contrived by engineers in the service of specific companies. Unix, by contrast, is not so much a product as it is a painstakingly compiled oral history of the hacker subculture. It is our Gilgamesh epic.

>What made old epics like Gilgamesh so powerful and so long-lived was that they were living bodies of narrative that many people knew by heart, and told over and over again–making their own personal embellishments whenever it struck their fancy. The bad embellishments were shouted down, the good ones picked up by others, polished, improved, and, over time, incorporated into the story. Likewise, Unix is known, loved, and understood by so many hackers that it can be re-created from scratch whenever someone needs it. This is very difficult to understand for people who are accustomed to thinking of OSes as things that absolutely have to be bought.

>Many hackers have launched more or less successful re-implementations of the Unix ideal. Each one brings in new embellishments. Some of them die out quickly, some are merged with similar, parallel innovations created by different hackers attacking the same problem, others still are embraced, and adopted into the epic. Thus Unix has slowly accreted around a simple kernel and acquired a kind of complexity and asymmetry about it that is organic, like the roots of a tree, or the branchings of a coronary artery. Understanding it is more like anatomy than physics

The cosmic operating system uses a command-line interface. It runs on something like a teletype, with lots of noise and heat; punched-out bits flutter down into its hopper like drifting stars. The demiurge sits at his teletype, pounding out one command line after another, specifying the values of fundamental constants of physics:

universe -G 6.672e-11 -e 1.602e-19 -h 6.626e-34 -protonmass 1.673e-27….

and when he's finished typing out the command line, his right pinky hesitates above the ENTER key for an aeon or two, wondering what's going to happen; then down it comes–and the WHACK you hear is another Big Bang.

Cyberpunk Bars

I like playing out this idea in my head of starting a cyberpunk bar. I got no brouzouf to do it with, but I like to dream.

What would a modern day cyberpunk-bar look like? What kind of name would it have? What drinks would it serve?

I figured it would probably have the local cheaper beer on tap, as well as something like Asahi (or a themed house beer), with cyberpunk themed cocktails and cheaper food to eat (everything from instant noodles to bar pizza).

As for the name, ideas like the "Capsule Bar" or "Neo-Tokyo" are the first things that come to mind.

Cyber illnesses, disorders, and other afflictions.

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.

>kept using and abusing, took a particularly large dose and never came out of it

>now has to spend his hard earned brouzouf on big pharma to live a normal life

>pills are practically poison but has to take them to avoid overstimulation

Sounds like a shitty life. Perfect for cyberpunk.

Also a place to create fictional cyber-esque illnesses if you'd like.

So what About Mendax?

Back in the 80's there was a little known aussie hacker by the name of Mendax. We know him as Julian Assange today.

What does /cyber/ think of him? His been in the game and a lot deeper than most of people. His rap sheet is impressive and he's contributed to open source in his more legit programmer days.

Now he seems like a fallen man child, unable to take care of his cat. Though that's the media we're getting. I'm afraid for him, he has every right to be paranoid considering the shit he's caused for the authority.

But doesn't that in a weird way make him a perfect caricature of all things cyberpunk? A hacker who went to far, like Icarus flying to close to the sun?

I share this because In the early 2000's rantmedia was doing internet content creation before the normies stormed the web.

Tales of the afternow had a weird way of being somewhat accurate and gave the listener an eyes on the ground view of what was in our future. It was formative to introducing me to the ideas and concepts of cyberpunk. It lead me on a great journey to reading PKD and Gibson and convincing my friends to play Shadowrun.

Google Duplex: An AI System for Accomplishing Real-World Tasks Over the Phone

>A long-standing goal of human-computer interaction has been to enable people to have a natural conversation with computers, as they would with each other. In recent years, we have witnessed a revolution in the ability of computers to understand and to generate natural speech, especially with the application of deep neural networks (e.g., Google voice search, WaveNet). Still, even with today’s state of the art systems, it is often frustrating having to talk to stilted computerized voices that don't understand natural language. In particular, automated phone systems are still struggling to recognize simple words and commands. They don’t engage in a conversation flow and force the caller to adjust to the system instead of the system adjusting to the caller.

Artificial intelligence of the future

I happened to envision the kind of future that we will have someday. So pay attention on what I'm about to tell you. There are few important points of what a real A.I should be.

1. Your A.I is more than just your love one. That said, your A.I is one most realiable companion you could ever have. Her intelligence could help you deal with tedious or intricate task without you tinkering the simplified way on how to do it. You could simply communicate to her in casual way to do things you like. She is one life saver whenever you're in need.

2. She is not really that smart as you think she is. That because she only do things whenver if there's a request input given to her espcially by you. That means, she cant do anything with her own free will.

3. Not only she could learn things, but she could also teach you to learn things that you don't know. She'll make sure that you will understand on whatever she thought you in a interactive way as long you ask her for help.

4. Great things can happen once she understand herself in more depth about the physical things that are used around her. This allows her to protect you and to take care of the machine intelligently.

So here comes the hard part of building your future A.I. Once the input data is stored, it needs to go into analytical process where all the mathematical procedures are involved to produce another set of code. These new set of code will be used to serve your request, but it can also be a question given from your A.I to you if the input data is insufficient. The length of this code depends on the analytical result that were made. The more complex request from the user, the more sophiticated the code will be. Just remember this anon, the future A.I is yours, best of luck and make it happen.

Cyberpunk is now

ITT: Post reasons why we are already living in a cyberpunk world.

I often see users complaining that the world isn't /cyber/ enough, but people are already doing all the cool things your read and watch and consume. Just you're sitting inside browsing /cyber/ instead of being /cyber/.

Webms, GIFs, videos etc appreciated.

I'll start:

•Riot police/swat

•Megacorporations (Namely Google)

•For-profit healthcare and prisons

•Overpopulation

•Drones (agricultural drones especially)

•Drone-jammers

•Google assistant/Amazon Alexa (& Google home, Amazon echo)

•Great disparities in wealth

•Boston dynamics, etc robots

•Lack of free speech

•Nuclear bombs

•High depression rates

•Targeted advertising

•Instant access to porn, entertainment online (dopamine releasing content)

•Consumer society

•Pollution & global warming

UBI and its implications for a cyberpunk reality

I believe UBI is what's going to truly cause the start of high tech, low life on a mass scale when big government, large corporations and banks collude on an unprecedented scale to bring this economic policy about once tech begins seriously replacing people by the millions(this has already begun and will spread into seemingly 'safe' sectors). There will be an uber rich class of elites and then the rest of us.

The idea, doesn't seem to be going away and is actually becoming an increasingly popular solution to future realities of high unemployment levels (and current economic policy failures). UBI is an easy sell to the average person who is, by design, economically illiterate.

Governments, socialist by nature, would jump at the chance to have the populace even more reliant on them. UBI is also a surprisingly popular solution even amongst some prominent billionaires e.g. musk, zuckerberg. There's more but the point is, there's a lot of support for it.

>Here's where the cyberpunk high tech, low life part comes in.

More and more people become effectively useless as tech advancements continues to increase at faster and faster rates, replacing more professions. The fundamental economics behind UBI are broken, (they will inevitably make you poorer and ultimately less than cattle). Supply and demand would be completely distorted, (not to mention the massive increase in people choosing just not to work because why should they) leading to more centralised solutions and control by government and wealth siphoning off to the elite as an ongoing side effect.

However, here's the kicker, as more and more people become comparatively poorer and poorer, their standards of living will remain highly reliant on tech as it continues to get better and better and increasingly used in more of their daily lives than before. The elite especially will become more reliant on high tech solutions. So we're going to have this world of millions of impoverished people heavily reliant on high tech whom (due to economic realities) are forced into shadow economies for tech upgrades, drugs, basic necessities that UBI couldn't provide. High tech, low lives.

I'd advise any young fags here or if you have/ are having children to push them into STEM related jobs so they will have a place in the future. Engineering, robotics, biotech related fields or good ol' computing to remain useful. Otherwise prepping to go off grid for the coming storm (check out ongoing crisis in Venezuela to understand how to survive when Socialist economies inevitably fail).

>Central economic planning on UBI scale would cause scarcity (supply and demand distortion) so having fundamental knowledge of computing/ robotics hardware in whatever tech is necessary (today and in the future) is what I'd advise for everyone to have. Being able to fix/ upgrade hardware will become a very useful skill.

I believe the shift has already begun, years ago. I'm highly sceptical of any current official unemployment figures. An 'underworld' society of unemployed people that already get by through nefarious/ alternative or nepotistic ways is well on its way. Once UBI begins on a mass scale, that's the signal to get prepared. Once AI hits, its game over.

The Internet and Social Isolation

The subject of this post may not fit perfectly into the category of 'cyberpunk', but my justification for it is

that we users who come here want to discuss topics and share our opinions with people who share a common

mentality or interest, in this case it is the commonality of 'cyberpunk'.

The main topic of this post is the Internet and social isolation. I will affirm that the Internet and computer

technology has made humans more socially isolated from each other and consequently feelings of loneliness has

become more frequent in the general population. In all forms of text-only communication, there are a number of

factors missing from online communication. Making a post on this board we are not able to see

the faces of each other, so we cannot read the expressions on our faces which is something we naturally do when

we interact with another person in meatspace. We cannot listen to our voices and then we cannot perceive and

interpret the tone of our voices, a quality of social interaction that, for example, is essential in detecting

sarcasm. We are not able to physically touch each other, we cannot experience tactile sensations of affection

with hugs or kissing or even sex. All of these factors are important in forming profound relationships with

other humans. As such, we can recognize that in communicating with each other in the Internet we cannot form

deep, intimate bonds with each other. I belive that this is the cause of our feelings of loneliness, at least

these are the reasons that I think explain the feelings of loneliness I experience. Do you feel lonely?

Also, we may think that online communication is a form of social interaction but I will assert that this is not

accurate. We are able to communicate with each other but not interact with each other, as what I have stated

previously, we cannot physically touch each other and therefore we cannot interact with each other, yet we are

able to exchange information with each other (communicate) but communication is not necessarily interaction

(mutual physical contact).

Now I find inspiration from the genre of cyberpunk to address this issue of social isolation. William Gibson

described the Internet, or something like it, as a consensual hallucination that the users perceive. Our

experiences in the Internet could be made more socially intimate and fulfilling if there was such a device

that would interface directly with our brains to induce false sensations and we perceived these sensations as

the 'cyberspace'. This device would be able to generate sensations of touching another person or even the

sensation of sight to perceive wonderful colors, we would be able to interace with objects in cyberspace by

stimulating our sensation of touch. This is all just an idea and not an original one either, nonetheless I

believe that I have made my point sufficiently. What do you think? Has the Internet and computer technology

made you more lonely?

Puella Magi Militech Magica

A comic book about cyberpunk magical girls (that's enough to make me erect) has been published as of recently. However, it was written by Literally Who Prime (that's enough to send my dick into hiding), and it's as much of a shitshow as you would expect, written by someone who obviously hasn't done their research in cyberpunk technobabble. If you want to read it, it's been storytimed in /co/, but I refuse to link that abortion here.

However, it got me thinking: how would you go about trying to make magical girls and cyberpunk meld together? Would you give any supernatural explanation to the girls' powers, or would you try to explain them in moderately scientific terms (biongineering, implants, genetic or psychological anomalies that give them some minor special capabilities…)? Would you make it about hope and despair, like a Meduka Meguca offshoot, or would you go for other themes? How much would you corrupt the magical girls, or how much would you purify cyberpunk to wed these two completely opposite genres?

favela chic and low-life sleuths

Cyberpunk is high-tech low life. Some of the famous cyberpunk writers, notably Bruce Sterling, tried to update this with "favela chic." (Why not a more white-centric vision? Because most of the classic cyberpunk writers hated white civilization, and some of them were Jews.)

In fact "favela chic" was depicted (before cyberpunk existed) by a very white man who wrote fiction stories from a very white perspective. His name was Dashiell Hammett, and his writings predate personal computers by about 50 years. Nevertheless Dashiell Hammett deserves your respect as a pivotal writer of the 20th century. Hammett did not write about favelas, as such, but he wrote about low-life people of various kinds. I encourage you to read some Hammett and then to pause for a while and marvel and how many 20th century writers ripped him off. Hammett was capable of writing about favela neighborhoods because he had seen a great deal of poverty, hardship, crime, abuse of authority, and moral corruption. Hammett was capable of turning real-world favelas into fictional favela chic because Hammett was just a literary genius.

The lesson to be learned is that the writers of today (they include the writer and the reader of this very post) should write the kind of stories that people want to rip off. And we can do that if we are capable of walking up to suffering in real life and etching it into our memories. Most people who live in favelas have been pushed out of easier places and forced to survive on an inhospitable, precarious slope.

>As Sterling … explained in his closing address at the reboot 11 conference, one possible scenario for the future is the "favela chic" scenario, in which material wealth is non-existent, but individuals are plugged into the grid and satiated with Facebook and Twitter.

Sterling was talking about that crap years ago. The specifics have shifted around; in the reality of late 2018, we see that Facebook has been abandoned by the youth and Twitter might be in trouble. However, the general pattern remains: the ultra-rich devise distractions like Facebook and Twitter to keep the poor in a state where they can't endanger the inequality of the status quo. If we want to write good stories (or live worthwhile lives) we have to be hip to the temptations but we can't let the temptations become addictions. We have to understand that our neighbors are addicted to distractions, even though we are all living on a precarious slope that might slide out from under us at any minute. Read Dashiell Hammett. He will give you the life lessons that will enable you to survive this.

Euro/cyber/

My fellow shazbots, it's happened. The EU just passed article 11 and 13 basically aggressive copyright enforcement of all uploaded content, it also includes "link tax". With the content control centers that will be set up, and the new AI that will be build, we are nearing china levels of technocrat-olligarcy. This is the point where we really need to innovate and create alternative platforms for normies, where they are given freedom.

Corepunk

I'm making a new thread by request, because this was on a tech thread and it's totally unrelated.

Weeks ago, I found a zine downtown when I was taking summer classes. I posted some pics here, and people seemed to recognize the art. They think they've linked it to a few reddit users (who may be the same person) and the subreddit /r/corecyberpunk

The zine suggests that there's a group of people calling themselves 'corepunks', because they all hang out on the 'coredump', which is apparently a BBS or something.

In the zine it has a map, and suggests looking for the open WAP 'Coredump', which I found uses a captive portal DNS to send you to a page, that in the code, gives you an email address and a code to send to the email address.

Once you do that, you get a note suggesting you set up a 'dead drop'.

When you go to the dead drop, there's a little plastic bag with a pin and a note that says 'Stay Tuned'.

Some people suggested I stake out the dead drop with a camera and catch them placing it, but when I arrived at the coffee/hukah/headshop The item was already there.

People have suggested I send another email, from another email address, and try to catch them the second time around. I asked my room mate if I could borrow his GoPro, and he's actually pretty interested in it now that I've explained it, so we might try that.

For now, attached, is the image of the pin.

The End of Linux

I think the situation its worse than most people realize: this isn't just poltards going ape over fat trannies with pink hair.

Thats not the point.

Think OWS, what killed it? wall street? the FBI? tea party?

Nah, it was the SJWs destroying it from the inside-out with retarded shit like the progressive stack where a retarded black transexual on a wheelchair had more priority because of his "condition" than a normal guy, even if the later had something actually relevant to say.

Its fairly obvious by now that it was no coincidence: the SJWs didn't merely stumble on OWS, they were sent to destroy it. Lots of prominent SJWs have visible ties with prominent megacorps, shady foundations, neocon think tanks and obscure social engineering government agencies. DIGRA is proof of this.

Linux has been the forefront of the FOSS movement for decades, and thats a big pain in the ass for megacorps and governments. Despite the apparent complexity it is easy to get a used laptop and run Tails. Its not 100% foolproof but most agencies would have a really hard time finding you, just look at the silk road case. Spying on people that use FOSS is not impossible but it is several orders of magnitude harder than spying on the average NPC with its portable wiretapping device (aka: unrooted phone) and his accounts on every honeypot social network. It is so hard to spy on people who use FOSS that many agencies have to rely on old detective work which is slow and expensive af.

So FOSS has to go, but how? Well with SJWs. Its genius really: instead of just banning Linux which is impossible they go around this and throw poison inside the community. There's already the possibility that angry derezzed contributors to the Linux repo might take their code with them which would completely wreck the project. And even if nothing that severe happens the stupid nonsensical shit SJWs bring with them always drives valuable people away, and thats because with their anti-meritocracy all SJWs do is put retards on the helm.

So instead of killing linux from one blow the megacorps and government will get SJWs to bleed it slowly to death. Anyone who can actually do something will leave, SJWs will burn through donations to fund their own shitty ideas which is just a way for them to steal brouzouf (see the Gnome women scandal) but ultimately do nothing to improve Linux which will stagnate.

There's also the risk that they might extend the CoC to the end user license which would only kill linux even faster.

Overall this is great for corporations: google is already making their own linux kernel replacement for android with fuchsia which is open source but just in the same way that chrome is, meaning it still has tons of spyware built-in which is near impossible to remove because nobody has the resources to audit all that code to find every little trick on it. So from now on the only real linux development will come from corporations which will inject all kinds of nasty spyware on it, and nobody will care.

And if RISC-V ever becomes a real threat to X86/ARM chips with built-in hidden processors and 4G modems then expect SJWs (with zero knowledge about ICs) to invade that project and destroy it as well.

The delegation of computing power to the cloud

The modern megacorp trend is to get you on a daily/weekly/monthly payment plan for X service. A good way to dangle the carrot and keep the proles spinning the wheels of commerce. Only to have access to the cloud services, be they: computing power, media libraries, comms, banking, deliveries of goods etc, you must be in constant employ and of good repute. Naturally, you'll have less time to even use the cloud services you sweat for.

To rule you need control, and that means to limit the potential of the citizenry. To "moderate" it to use the megacorps' equivocation. We already have limited access to fuel, electricity, mbps, and next I think computing power. If you don't pay the $34.95/month (vid related) you go stone age.

Is this far fetched? If you consider the normie, and the tech they use, or even yearn for, you see most are content with a smartphone, tablet or lightweight laptop. That's where the demand is. I still don't see the future demand for large production/gaming level systems that may or may not be futureproofed, over the immediacy of cloud computing with lightweight hardware. The affordable monthly fee certainly suits this austere economy better than a $1200+ up front PC build.

So if you plan on needing the PC power, and the hands on access in order to mod/fix your own gear, better get it while you can. I'm just not seeing it around forever without a normie-tier economic demand. Fight the cloud, keep processing power in the hands of the people!

Hacking vidya

Since theres a lot of doom and gloom about the low PPH on /cyber/, I'll contribute stuff about my videogame. (This is the hacking sim/strategy game, not the point and click adventure, which is >>26172)

Theres two modes to it, one being the command line hacking aspect, and the other being a city view where you direct your agents to different locations to perform different actions. Thats one thing I liked about Hacker Evolution, it gave a distinct sense of 'place', where your level was rooted clearly in some physical part of the world, like an office building or intersection, or more broadly a city.

>Why start this thread?

I'm hoping to harvest some of the passion /cyber/ has for this kind of thing. Story-wise, I lean towards a lot of the themes present in cyberpunk, such as corruption, haves vs. have-nots, and tech knowledge opening up doors that most people don't know about. But its more like this game brushes up against a lot of /cyber/ themes, rather than this being Cyberpunk: The Game.

Currently I'm focusing on programming the world views, systems, and content creation tools. There isn't really any content yet. Halfchan agdg has a demo day on Nov 8th, so I'm trying to have something for that. Until then, anon has made some schway music for the game, only one of them is on their soundcloud though:

Right now, what we have is virtual monitors in a 3D environment. It's the most basic user interface inspired by the concept we've been using for decades.

It doesn't do the possibilities justice though. It's still limiting yourself to monitors, just more of them in a beach house, mountain cabin or whatever you design.

Let's discuss how you could actually "dive in". Post a conventional program (file manager, text processor, web browser, IDE, accounting applications, online banking, etc.) and how you could take advantage of VR. After all, it's just representing 1s and 0s, right?

Half-assed Philosophy Thread

Damn, this place is quiet. Let's talk personal philosophies. Anyone can bitch about what's cyberpunk or not, anyone can edgelord it up about sticking it to the man and petty attempts at annoying corps– but what about the real nitty-gritty of life, cyber-dystopia or otherwise?

Here's my perspective. First, everyone needs to chill the fuck out. We live in such a fucked up world that if we let ourselves get worked up over every little thing, we're never gonna chill out. You're wasting your life if you just shout about shit. Calm down, have a snack, go bowling or some shit. You can't change the world in a day, so you might as well enjoy what you've got before it's gone.

Second, we need to look out for eachother. Yeah, you can't trust people, lots of people suck. But if you find that group that you CAN trust, fuckin stick to them. Contribute. You need people you can rely on, and so do they. You don't need to be a social butterfly to have at least a couple of people on your side; humans are social creatures. Lone wolves are vulnerable, not cool.

Third, we need to look out for OURSELVES. With the crazy politics and growing threats around the world, it's not going to be long before shit hits the fan real hard. We should live our lives (see part one, chill out) and enjoy em, but it always pays to be prepared.

What about you chummers? How do my ideas fit into the /cyber/ side of things to you? What about YOUR ideas? Let's chase away the deadness.

Human/Android Love

The question has been goin around in my head since a long time. Androids are constantly evolving, one day, they may eventually replicate humans at perfection (think blade runner)

Could it be possible, and understandable for and human to fall in love with and android, and artificial life form?

I personally think it is, to me, the nature of skin, bone, and flesh is expandable. All these materials can be faked, but mind and soul cannot be. Of course, an AI can try to replicate human mind and brai functions, but in this case, we are just gonna assume that the synthetic body is piloted by an human brain (Like Major Motoko Kusanagi in GITS)

I mean, what is the sole difference between meat and synthethic substance? appearence? not really, one day, synthethic technology will be able to fake everything so well you could hardly see the difference.

Physics properties? maybe, but I doubt it.

The only difference is in the human mind and nowhere else.

* How to configure your router.

* How x protocol works.

And while that's cool 'n all,that's just INFORMATION, fragments info,that you read in x forum or wiki and forget in 3-5 hours.

i was thinking about using a binary tree.

i made a similar thread on lain-chan,and they pointed me to Computer Networks' by Andrew S. Tannenbaum, as a introductory book about computer networks,their technologies,organizations & protocols.

The idea is to make a single thread,asking about content for a specific theme(applied math,networking theory,etc) ONE THEME AT A TIME.Get the entries make a list and post it.Then move to a different subject,we would refine the list over time.

So.. right now we need to decide what THEMES we will need to look at.I Recommend:

History of Computation,History of programing,Applied math,"programing theory"(what's a class?,Programming paradigm?),networking theory,Something about the operational systems we have today.

Any one would recommend additions or changes?

tl;dr Uninformed Anon Wants M0ar Cyberpunk, How Do I Into?

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.

CLOUD STORAGE

Sup chummers.

So,I need somewhere to store some of my files (about 100GB), and I do not want to pay for any cloud storage services .(I'm almost living below the poverty line, so nothing that involves brouzouf will help me.)

Does anyone know if I can create my own cloud storage?

What is cyberpunk, already?

Hey chummers, i'd like to share some thoughts on cyberpunk, and you might find it useful(probably not, though.

I think cyberpunk needs to be defined in at least some consensual form, so here's that.

I dont't think that cyberpunk is about aesthetic, as there are certain styles that already represent it, even though some syberpunk fiction might be extremely different from another, atleast visually, yet still remain cuberpunk.Therefore, cuberpunk must be some kind of view of life, world and this other stuff, which is usually called philosophy.So, what then forms cyberpunk views? Well, the word "cyberpunk" consists of words "cyber" and "punk"(who'd have thought).

I'll try to explain these 2 views that form cyberpunk, starting with "punk" part. Punks represent the movement of independence, nonconformism, and other stuff i may not fully understand, as the only punk things i've seen were some drunk guys sleeping after drinking alcohol, in a very extensive amount. I therefore would disagree with the punkish point of demonstrating nonconformism, challenging "society", and all this actions, as dependent on other people and as a consequence of the movement becoming subculture the same way, as, for example, the "programming" or "IT" sphere of interest created h@xx0rs. Instead, i'd define "punk" part as nonacceptance of authority, submission and forceful coercion, there is another reason destructive provocation is not very suitable, and i'll explain later.

So, now here is the "cyber" part. I think cyber-ish idea does not stop on some certain technological level, and is extensive to any technology and knowledge, and i then define cyber as using extensive knowledge of the world to your advantage, and, therefore, while being able to mill yourself a fullmetal butt plug on a lathe may not sound very cyberpunk, to the extent of our technological developement of today, it counts. Cyber also does not end on the tech only, as being able to cure yourself, blend in the crowd, survive in the woods, or get a better job still comes under the "knowledge of the world". So, after all this wall of text, what is cyberpunk? It is an idea of independence, self sufficience, unwillingness to conform, of strong self, and action towards your goals and principles. As it is, you can even be a head of a megacorporation(imagine a coder working for google), dress in the high end clothes, do your job, and yet be cyberpunk, if you hold no respect of belief in such an entity, and not embrace it(or any other) in your mind.*

Thanks for reading all this, hope i got it at least partially right, and if not, feel free to btfo me at any moment.

*In case of clothes, it can be at least a professional requirement, though it can also be personal preference, as some "technoninja" clothes may not be very fitted in terms of utility, but be enjoyable for a person, and still be available. What i'm saying is, even though some actions, decisions or appearance may not be fitted for certain lifestyle, they still are fine, unless they serve some purpose, other than visually representing some fiction, in which case it would rather be against this philosophy, which, ultimately, would sound like "form follows function" in case of choice of tools or clothes. Basically, the same way that people who do cosplay do not use their costumes on a regular basis.

Nick Land

You've all read the most cyberpunk philosopher, right?

“Nothing human makes it out of the near-future.”

"To describe this circuit, as it consumes the human species, is to define our bionic horizon: the threshold of conclusive nature-culture fusion at which a population becomes indistinguishable from its technology."

“Machinic desire can seem a little inhuman, as it rips up political cultures, deletes traditions, dissolves subjectivities, and hacks through security apparatuses, tracking a soulless tropism to zero control. This is because what appears to humanity as the history of capitalism is an invasion from the future by an artificial intelligent space that must assemble itself entirely from its enemy's resources.”

"As blockchains, drone logistics, nanotechnology, quantum computing, computational genomics, and virtual reality flood in, drenched in ever-higher densities of artificial intelligence, accelerationism won’t be going anywhere, unless ever deeper into itself. To be rushed by the phenomenon, to the point of terminal institutional paralysis, is the phenomenon. Naturally – which is to say completely inevitably – the human species will define this ultimate terrestrial event as a problem. To see it is already to say: We have to do something. To which accelerationism can only respond: You’re finally saying that now? Perhaps we ought to get started? In its colder variants, which are those that win out, it tends to laugh."

“Level-1 or world space is an anthropomorphically scaled, predominantly vision-configured, massively multi-slotted reality system that is obsolescing very rapidly.

Garbage time is running out.

Can what is playing you make it to level-2?”

Corperate Governance

https://corpgov.law.harvard.edu/2018/03/23/corporations-and-the-culture-wars/

Corporations are increasingly becoming governments. They are taking policy stances and customers are transacting or not based on perspective on company values. Some corporations are even openly defying governments (Cf. Uber ) , or heavily pressuring governments to take policy position. People talk about distinct subculutures existing at SV companies (Like apple / google ). Facebook is currently talking about building and owning a town. Meanwhile, Federal Government is in chaos, lacking leaders, or even people in touch with basic reality. CA and liberal states are resisting. The federal government is going to make itself irrelevant and facebook is going to be the new government.

Is this possible?

Interior Design

I want to live in the future, and I hate how mundane my flat looks.

I don't want just a fuarrrking "battlestation" decorated with blue neon lights and with a pile of cig butts, doritos and random tech lying around. (Like my friend's)

Here's my vision:

I want a clean slick view, order in a dystopic future. I want to know that everything out there is soykaf. AI is uncanny as hell, botwars are ravaging half of the world, automation fuarrrked up everything about the market, privacy doesn't exist and drugs and sexbots are ruining the youth… but I'm above that.

I feel like a fish in the water in all this. I benefit from all of that, and my place looks nice, not like a japanese soykafhole, rather like the rich fuarrrks that abuse the world. That's my fantasy. I'm not rich, so I just want the A E S and then do it myself.

Can you rec me some inspiration?

And no we're not just gonna die from nukes, or from a meteor. Actual target of nuke, apart from capital city, will strike every power plant, every food producer. It costs far less to cut down electricity and food than to kill people directly.

We're gonna die from thieves, from starvation, from mafia killing you for territories. Our world is gonna become a giant ghetto.

AI-Driven Marketing in Games and Media

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.

Human Augmentation

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?

Google wants to train school kids to detect hate speech

Hello fellow chummers,

I just found this article about youtube (therefore google) to train 5000 kids in the 9th and 10th class (most of them will be around 14-16 years old) to detect hate speech on the net. This may sound like a good idea, but let me tell you why I think it is not. The article (german) and a tl;dr can be found at the end of this post.

Most of you know this already, but germany made bad news the last months, because "we" opened "our borders" to "welcome refugees" from war zones, mostly of syria and such. I just want to clarify some things before I come back to google, because they are important (at least to me): "we" did not want this. The whole thing may be a monumental act of kindness, but it lead to a lot of problems and anyone who thinks that the last months of terror in europe do not correlate to the unbelievable high number of refugees is, in my honestest opinion, blind. Of course, there was and is resistance: People who don't want that, but they are marked as idiots, assholes, nazis; you name it. But to be fair, there are a lot very right winged people here to refugee-bait (reading: jew-baiting for refugees). The aforementioned article does not pick up this debate and problem at all, but since they want to fight hate, discrimination, and insults. My point is: Some ultra right winged people do these things and the state should take care of them, if they harm someone, but just being against something is one's right of free opinion and speech. But it is a dangerous thing to do, because a lot of people already lost their jobs because of this, so the most people keep quiet. The refugee crisis and this project are highly connected, but I fear that it does not stop there. It will serve as a cloak for the things to come.

Some of you may remember the DDR aka. the German Democratic Republic (short GDR), I do not, but their methods were as effective as vile. In short, everyone who was unpopular (to the system, to one's neighbours, to ones colleagues at work) has to be _very_ afraid of being denounced; often without proof, imagine a modern witch hunt in the 1990s. And the media lies. Call me a scaredy-cat, an idiot, whatever, but we live in a time of mass-media control: We are told what we have to know for whatever reason "they" think of. Free speech dies piece by piece on every level of our society and with all this angst in mind I see this article.

Google wants to train around 5000 kids to locate "hate speech", but they do not clarify what hate speech is. I have a bad feeling that some 14-16 years old kids (call bs on this statement, but around 95-99 % of of kids this age can't be taken serious at all) are in charge to point their fingers at something a multinational concern defines as "hate speech", "discrimination", or whatever for them. Where does it begin? Right winged posts about actual political topics? Very likely. But what in the long run? Gender debate? Religion? Or something as simple as one's opinion about anything. I fear a state where you "hate" because you have a different opinion. This is an instrument which should not be given to anyone, especially not to kids. Ok, they just say that the user "cuddle-mouse" said something about some topic, the post will be deleted, that's it. But will that be all for the next years? I think this project will be successful: Increasing its manpower and expertise (better staff, more topics), more mandatory courses on schools (hard coded in the curriculums) and so on. The worst case would be, if the system establishes rights to "hurt" individuals to go to court because someone hurt their feelings; I remember the anecdote of the PTSD-fêmme. These adjustements are very unlikely the next 20-30 years, I think, but what then?

tl;dr: Google trains 5000 kids to detect hate speech without defining the scope (google-media only or other sites too?; what topics? what consequences for the "bad apples"?), leading to a small GDR-like taskforce of an international corporation and the german minister of women.

This really frightens me. What do you think? Will this idea backfire?

Also: What search sites and mail providers are worthy to look in? I want to turn my back to google as a search engine and mail provider, but their search results and mail service is too good in my opinion.

/cyber/'s VPN of Choice?

Sup /cyber/,

Streaming videos and browsing dissenting sites is getting riskier every day. VPNs will soon become a necessity to maintaining our free-travel across the net.

I was recommended this:

Am I the only one here who thinks Neuromancer was complete ass?

Media Compilation Project

Crossposting from Lainchan (https://lainchan.org/r/res/3260.html#3260). I've been wanting to compile a large variety of "eye-opening" media, and then to organize it by increasing gradation.

For me, there was much media that helped me to see things as I do now, to question things, be wary of the government, and see the various flaws in society. Anything that encourages free thought or distrust in assumptions/governments is what I am aiming for.

My idea is to organize it in such a way that a "program" can be made of it to introduce to people to help them to "wake up". Intro-tier would have to be "accessible" enough as not to cause any conditioned aversion toward it, and to gradually increase the concepts as you move higher on the list.

As far as the media medium itself, music and movies are better introductions than interactive media or books/podcasts.

Here's a sample of my current, unorganized list:

Movies

>The Matrix (and sequels?)

>ARQ

>Contact

>District 9

>Fight Club

>Johnny Got His Gun

>Soylent Green

>The Truman Show

>Avatar(?) (Not air-bender)

>Repo Men

Music

As far as intro-tier music goes- easily accessible, discernible lyrics, and subtle, thought-provoking themes (or perhaps just music that strays from standard musical trends in any way, but perhaps this works better for a higher tier). Basically, to subversively convey ideas and plant "seeds of doubt", to make conditionally foreign ideas more accessible and familiar. Similar to what current media is doing by forceful immersion.

>Crystal Castles

>Amnesia Scanner

>Front Line Assembly

>Machinae Supremacy

>Mankind Is Obsolete

>Oceanlab

>Brendan Byrnes

>Liar (Romanian)

>Holly Herndon

>Blanck Mass

Books

Intro-tier would be mostly fiction, and higher tiers would include non-fiction.

>1984 - George Orwell

>Brave New World - Aldous Huxley

>Fight Club - Chuck Paluhniuk

>Anthem - Ayn Rand

>Atlas Shrugged - Ayn Rand

>Lord of the Flies - William Golding

>Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte

>The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood

>The Giver - Lois Lowry

>Gathering Blue - Lois Lowry

>Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card (Perhaps series?)

>Fehrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury

>Dune - Frank Herbert (Series?)

Anime

>Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

>Welcome to the NHK

>Ghost in the Shell (1996)

>Animatrix (?)

>Neon Genesis Evangelion

This is pretty general so far, so help me to refine by giving suggestions and questioning what I put here

Let's invent some subcultures!

I'm working on something, and part of the writing is inventing some subcultures as part of the world building.

It's had me thinking about Cyberpunk a lot, because the game is heavily influenced, and how there's really no set culture that goes along with all the media. Some people say it's one thing, some people say it's another … so, just as a writing exersize, describe to me your ideal subculture.

What do you stand for?

What do you wear?

What do you do?

What kind of club do you hang out at?

What kind of music do you listen to?

Basic Security

ITT: How to not be an idiot about securing your shit.

Leson 1: WEP security for your wifi is shit. If you want wifi, you'll need WPA2.

If you use WEP, then your password's hash is transmitted openly–and someone who's listening can send that hash in place of your password.

That's basically all I know on the subject, though. Anybody else got any tips?

Horrible rightwinger wants Vivian James to be cyberpunk; good-thinkers crimestop wrongthink

The Last Night gave a short announcement on the Microsoft stage Sunday night, and it was quickly praised for its visual style and the obvious nods to cyberpunk platformer Flashback. But minutes after it was announced, Milkshake Duck’s Law kicked in. A trove of acidic tweetstorms from lead designer Tim Soret was discovered, starting with a headstrong defense of Gamer Gate and eventually ending in attacks on Bill Nye the Science Guy. Knowing this about Soret, the idea of the Last Night’s “socialist dystopia,” where universal income kills creativity has a clear origin.

Publisher Raw Fury Games tried to smooth things over, saying “A lot can change in three years, including viewpoints, and Tim has assured us that the Last Night does not spout a message steeped in regressive stances. We trust Tim and know that he is an advocate for progression both in and outside of our industry, and we hope that this will be apparent moving forward.”

Politically correct thought police make everything bland.

I understand that cyberpunk originated from rather left-wing sentiments among quite leftist writers.

But politically correct cyberpunk is too mediocre to be cyberpunk. The leftist conformity crushes any attempt at originality.

Questions of a beginner about security on the Internet

Good day, dear /cyber/.

At the beginning of this message I would like to mention that I am not only a new visitor to this website, but also an absolute beginner when it comes to technical knowledge.

I am interested in Internet security for a long time and would like to develop in this area and learn new things. This board makes the impression that there are many people here who have years of experience in this field and know what they are talking about. For this reason, I would very much like to ask you a few questions if I am allowed.

1) For several months I have been reading on forums and blogs that the cryptocurrency called Bitcoin was never anonymous and never will be. For law enforcement officers it is no problem to trace them back. Some people who are concerned with this topic recommend to switch to Monero, even if there are many others (Litecoin, Zcash, Dash, Ethereum, etc.).

=> Is it true that bitcoins are not secure when it comes to an anonymous way of payment? And what is your opinion about Monero?

2) On the Internet you can read articles and forum contributions from people who claim that in almost all (new) computers, various hardware backdoors are installed.

=> Is this the truth, or just paranoid nonsense from conspiracy theorists? If it is true, what can we do about it?

3) In the search for protection on the world wide web, I always come across operating systems that promise security. These include e.g. Qubes OS, Whonix, Tails, and Subgraph OS.

=> Can these systems offer *real* protection and if so, which of these would you recommend when it comes to optimal security? Would Gentoo or OpenBSD be sufficient?

4) When it comes to intelligence agencies, I often read and hear that there is no protection against such organizations.

=> Is it true that the Mossad, NSA, GCHQ, MI5, MI6 can easily access any system, no matter what security precautions we have?

5) When I am talking to people privately, I often use instant messaging like Pidgin or Gajim (XMPP) with the OTR protocol. Now I have read that this is outdated and contains security gaps. It is recommended to change to something new like OMEMO.

=> Have you ever heard of it and what is your opinion? Is it sensible to change it for security reasons?

6) Assuming I have an internal hard drive with private data and would like to delete this completely. Restore should no longer be possible.

=> Is the program DBAN a reasonable solution and sufficient, or do I have to do much more?

7) Are metadata a real security risk if we want to move anonymously on the Internet?

=> Is the program "Exiftool" or "MAT" sufficient to remove all the data from photos we took with our mobile phone or camera?

8) What opportunities are known to you that you can also recommend newcomers to support the internet freedom and digital rights? I would like to get involved in helping people around the world to access a free and uncensored Internet. It seems to me as if organizations such as the Tor project, EFF, FSF, etc. are doing great and fantastic work to defend a free and open web.

Since my English skills are not the best, I apologize. I hope you understand my message. I would be very happy about helpful, interesting and informative answers. Thank you very much in advance for your help and take care of yourselves.

Schawy/cool stuff to do with a PowerMac G4

So there are those Macs I salcaged from a friend of my dad.

Got 3 of them, the G4 "Blue" wich is very good conditions, minus the main HD that I fucked up by going full retard with MorpOS installation.

The two other ones are Silver G4's, they took a bit of humidity, one got its PSU shutdown because of this, the other one is working, but the internals suffered alot from the H20 (Dead speakers, corrosion, etc…)

I'm figuring how to remove the Mobo from theses machines, in order to put the beefiest parts into the blue G4, dunno what to do with the silver ones, there are no way I can sell them to a Apple collectioner.

I got the idea to install Music Tracker software, plus Photoshop on it, but that's about it for now, any idea of Schway stuff to do with this baby? or at least, cool things?

/cyber/punk 2020 campaign - TTTE

Hey guys,

Running a writing/narrative-heavy campaign of 2020, centered around the aftermath of a massive. world-changing corporate hack.

Looking for some players, preferably ones that are heavily interested in and familiar with cyberpunk. (hence why I'm here and not on /tg/)

Shit's going to be a blast, but we need a few more players before go-time.

Does cyberpunk have to be dystopian or can it be antiutopian?

I've recently heard people claiming that Psycho-Pass is not cyberpunk, because the society in it isn't actually dystopian.

Movie thread

Since the movie thread had been nuked before I even could go final with the chart, I decided to make another one.

Suggest any Cyberpunk film, anime, documentary or TV series that isn't on the chart yet.

With most major proto and actual Cyberpunk work added, I don't expect much except in the documentary part. If nothing pop ups before Sunday, I prune the unnecessary space and add some decoration and call it a finished product (for the time being).
