cyber vidya help

Some of you might have already seen this before but I was working on a hacking simulator game. Thing is that I can handle the design, art and writing and the music's being taking care of, but I just too stupid to wrap my head around programming.

I figured maybe /cyber/ had some programmers that would like to help me out with this. I was planning to do some crowdfunding campaign once there's enough to show off so payment can be done through revshare, paid by hour, whatever. I'll just copy and paste most of the pitch from the previous thread:

Interface-based hacking game similar to Uplink or Hacknet, stylized automated hacking with schway visuals in a setting taking place in an alternate history kind of setting. Procedurally generated world with random companies, citizens, hackers, hacker clans, missions etc with some small touches of emergent gameplay (for example company that goes bankrupt cause of digital sabotage and the former owner takes out a hit on the hackers involved). Heavy focus on multitasking, having to micro-manage multiple hacking programs at the same time, maintaining them and staying within hardware limits, although you can upgrade your computer's mobo/CPU/RAM/storage space for quicker and stabler hacking. Once you get caught hacking you're jailed for life requiring you to restart the game but you can prevent getting caught by setting up proxies before pulling off a hack. The more proxies you use the more time you get to hack, but in return you also get more lag. You can also upgrade your proxies but they'd be expensive. Lastly, there's a main plot that's got some joinable factions similar to New Vegas in a story about the future of the internet and security vs. privacy, big corporations and governments wanting to use the internet for their own scummy means and smaller people trying to stop them, standard cyberpunk shit.

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

Is there any real difference between humans and androids?

Being the massive fucking nerd I am, I've been watching some anime recently. One of particular cyberpunky interest I have found is "Beatless", which depicts a society a bit over a hundred years from now in which humanlike robots, called HiE units, are omnipresent in society as household tools.

A significant bone of contention, as is common in such settings, is the question of whether or not they should be treated as human.

This of course gets me to thinking about a subject often present in cyberpunk fiction and in transhumanist discussion for that matter: Just what makes a human different from a highly complex machine?

Our personality? Machines may learn to imitate that fairly soon.

Our shape? Soon machines will be reasonably accurate facsimiles of the human shape. Hell, some models of sex dolls are already approaching that.

Our individuality? When machines begin passing the Turing test, that argument will become irrelevant. They're getting closer and closer all the time.

The soul? Its' existence is debatable.

So, say you have two human-shaped-objects in front of you.

Both are similarly dressed. Both are similarly human in appearance. Both are average in speech pattern. There is no visually detectable indication that one is human and one is not.

How do you differentiate?

Even beyond that, How does one make an argument that a human is not simply a chemical computer?

Our emotions and memories are largely a matter of various chemicals interacting with bio-electric signals, as pure science would presently understand.

Is that not simply a program? Is there a functional difference between those chemical processes and one of ones and zeroes in a machine?

I love pondering these kinds of questions, and it always brings me to the same conclusion: it doesn't really matter. It is my opinion that there is no good reason that a machine of significant enough complexity to approximate human behaviour, individual thought, and appearance should be treated any differently than a flesh-and-blood human.

And at that point the future is beyond human control.

I fucking LOVE thinking about this kind of shit. Anyone else?

Privacy Coins Will Lead to Robust Black Markets

You should be reading the deep thoughts available at:


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

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.

/cyber/ trades

I was thinking of going back to school, and then thought, "why not ask the internet what to do?" I'm currently in the military operating crypto equipment and ferrying emails about, but yearn for something a little more engaging to do with my life.

I could go back to school for CS, but CS people are absolutely awful and anything you learn in school in a 3 year program will have been obsolete for 5 once you're done. Even if you do ever get a job, you'll be surrounded by assholes who submit every commit you make to "thedailywtf.com".

I could try computer engineering instead, but unless you're going to become a graduate student by 25, you're dead in the water with no relevant skills because only the cutting edge matters.

I could try EE, but that has the same issues as computer engineering, but also it's even more difficult but also a lot of the major issues outside of computing are long since solved, so there's no jobs for anyone outside of the cutting edge except for nepotist-hired italians and greeks bolting COTS transformers together.

I could go into UI/UX, but that's namby pamby bullshit that never ends in a job, since the people who do actual UI/UX are usually drawn from software teams or groups of non UI/UX specialists

Or, I could go back for something more artsy and not directly related to computers that I like, but those artsy-fartsy jobs either don't exist or are all mafia-controlled; things like industrial design, architecture, civil engineering, etc.

Cyberpunk Lifestyle

How can I live in a cyberpunk lifestyle today? I mean, we still don't have body implanted tech and flying cars (lol), but I'm sure we can still manage to live like this as close as possible with the available technology today.

Besides the skills (check >>47182) and clothing (check >>46845) required for this lifestyle, what would you include in this package?

I would include: reducing the amount of data that the organizations and the government has on you, deleting accounts that has any kind of personal info about you; having a good VPN service would be good too, but I'm not sure about it, maybe a private VPN; customizing your phone to keep it simple and yet useful; hoarding a lot of data (just in case).

Also, I was thinking about some form of minimalism, but I'm not entirely sure how it'd be.

I've been told that the sysadmin job is the best one to be closer to the cyberpunk world, but so is being a NEET. You could get brouzouf from doing some freelance jobs on the internet, just enough to pay your bills and keep yourself fed. Owning a cheap small apartament on the center of the city would help too.

Escaping the Standard C library: Writing LS

This post contains C and X86_64 code for for Linux to write a functional program without requiring the C library. This is generally not useful, and is done as a pedantic excersize to learn about how the linux runtime environment, and the C Library works. In this work, we will implement a small, incomplete, and probably bug-ridden ls, including various standard c library functions as part of that implementation.

What is the C Library ?


The libc, the standard c library is the common set of functions used by c programmers, including the most commonly used functions like malloc(), and printf(). If you have written C, there is a great chance that you have used these functions, but have you ever wondered how they are implemented? How does printf actually get text to your terminal? Unfortunately, most of those details are actually abstracted by kernel, and terminal software, and will will not uncover all of the mystery by simply writing the printf() function - thankfully printf() knows absolutely nothing about your terminal. Libc is used to make the same functions (Ie. printf() ) available across all platforms. Using libc, or libc conformant functions, simplifies the porting of applications across platforms. Libc does this by taking the services that various operating systems offer, and building the standard functions out of them - that is to say, Libc abstracts the operating system away from the code.

# C Program #

# Standard C library #

# Operating System Kernel #

Operating System Services / Application Programming Interfaces


The linux operating system provides services to programs through "system calls". System calls are similiar to functions, run by the kernel (linux) that manipulate hidden trusted data structures, transfer data between processes, write files, create new processes, and a wide variety of other serivices. A special peculiartiy of unix like operating systems is everything is considered a file, and the system calls open(), read(), write(), close() are used to interact with them. Our printf() example actually only uses the write() system call to a special file to write data to your terminal. The manual pages for system calls are page 2, and can be read for example with the following for write() : man 2 write

It will bind to them all.” Without giving away his trade secrets, he says he has found which Gaba and other receptors can be stimulated to induce tipsiness without adverse effects. “We know where in the brain alcohol has its ‘good’ effects and ‘bad’ effects, and what particular receptors mediate that – Gaba, glutamate and other ones, such as serotonin and dopamine. The effects of alcohol are complicated but … you can target the parts of the brain you want to target.”

>Handily, you can modify the way in which a molecule binds to a receptor to produce different effects. You can design a peak effect into it, so no matter how much Alcarelle you consume, you won’t get hammered.

Are you ready for future designer drugs, without any of the downsides of drugs? Cyberpunk has never been more than NOW.

Hello /cyber/!

I come to you today in search of guidance.

There's plenty of INFORMATION on the web about:

* How to program.

* 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 propose,we try to LOCATE and ORGANIZE technical books,courses,and instructional videos, in order to facilitate the study of computers and their inner workings.


what's the point of looking /cyber/ if you don't have the know-how a citizen of the web should have.

>How will it be organized?

i was thinking about using a binary tree.

So can any one recommend,books,pod casts or other material that could be used for self study?

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?

Corperate Governance


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.

My story:

Last night, I uploaded in regards to the 2019 Christchurch Massacre the Facebook Live stream, the manifesto, and the PDF archived thread.

The Internet Archive removed the video of the 2019 Christchurch Massacure without notice. I emailed them asking why, and told them my intent to reupload. I did. When I woke up this morning, the video was taken down again. I discovered shortly after my account had been locked. I emailed a second time to inquire. Shortly after this email, I discovered that both the manifesto and the archived thread have been set to "required to log-in to view" and have been Geologically censored. The Metadata says France is the region it is not able to be viewed. This does not make sense.

I have sent three emails and not received a single reply. I decided to wait until now for a reply, because I expected now to be a reasonable deadline. They have not replied. As of now, the two remaining files are still censored, and the video is still deleted. I am still unable to log into my Internet Archive account. With this, I am hereby announcing a boycott of the Internet Archive until they stop this censorship!

Spread these flyers, I have contacted multiple media outlets about this censorship, as well as persons involved in high-tech cases such as the EFF whom I hope will side with me and help participate in this boycott. I hope to make a difference. I am but one man, and need help.

The URLs of the files that remain are here:

/cyber/ Guide to Software: Libre-Minimalist Flavour


#————-/Cyber/ Guide to Software————-

#————————–Libre-Minimalist Flavor #


This guide attempts to provide an overview of the theory surrounding minimalism and libre philosophy in software as well a list of recommended software that adheres to these principals. This guide was written for /cyber/ anonymously, and should be distributed an modified, emended as expanded as fits the distributors of the document.

####### Contents ########

# 1 Software Minimalism : Why Minimalism creates reliable and faster software and users.

# 2 Softare Freedom

# 3 Recommendations

#1 Software Minimalism

'there is one quality that cannot be purchased in this way - and that is reliability. The price of reliability is the pursuit of the utmost simplicity. It is a price which the very rich find most hard to pay. '

Software is inherantly bug ridden and complex. Bugs, responsible for security failures, loss of data, crashing applications, and other technological ills are introduced into code at a reliable rate per line of code. The largest enterprises haven't been able to produce reliable technology despite enormous operating budgets over years, and the web is a perfect example of this: Virtually all Browsers leak memory due to the complexity of the modern web, and the bug ridden code that composes the preponderous browsers. Computers despite having many orders of mangitude more resources have become less responsive to the humans that operate them, and phenomena known as "Wirths Law", and less available due to failures as software has scaled in complexity. C.A.R. Hoare consisly and elegantly described the problem in his turning lecture "The Emperors Old Clothes" with the following gem:

"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult. It demands the same skill, devotion, insight, and even inspiration as the discovery of the simple physical laws which underlie the complex phenomena of nature."

Out of this economy of complexity, we gain firstmost in reliablity, but there are far more advantages to be had than this alone. Minimalists software runs faster, allows the user to invest in software and become a power user, to fine tune the enviroment to suit the user, and ultimately allows the (re)use of lower end hardware, preventing obsolence.

Choosing minimalist software is a rejection of the "All features, all the time" (wirth) software release model where software must add features, and change in design purely for the sake of convincing customers to buy a product. Choosing minimalist software allows a user to invest in learning how to use software with the understanding that the investment will pay dividends. That is to say, radically altered,new user interfaces will not appear to make new functionality accessible. This is ultimately a promise to the user that enables the user to become a power user.

Because Users are expected to become power users, the can forgo plenty of fluff. Expressed by Wirth in the following quote:

"Increased Complexity results in large part from our recent penchant for friendly user interaction."

Becuase users are expected to become power users, we can define interfaces that are optimized not for discoverability but for power users trying to acheive goals rapidly with minimal effort. A simple example of this is Unix command names and directory names, which were "…. worn down to three letter nubbins, like stones smoothed by a river." (Stephenson) in an effort to spare unneccesary keystrokes. Of note, this has been notably attacked by the Unix-Haters Handbook. Minimalist software thus encourages power users, and enables there computing, rather than targeting discoverybility, ease of use, and providing marketable, maximalist feature creep.

Although minimalist software need not be textual, Unix Systems have taken this minimalist approach to creating power users, and enhanced it through creating composible programs with the commandline. The Unix commandline environment encourages "taco bell programing", or combinations of small, reliable, tools to acheieve complex tasks without writing large amounts of code from scratch - named for taco bells ability to make millions through combinations of few ingredients. This is valuable, in the words of Ted Dziuba because of the trust we can have in minimalist, time tested software:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.


2. The North Paw
put a belt on your leg that vibrates towards north.
You will be able to insitnctively percieve that direction after soem time

Cost: 150$

Pros: You laways know where North is

Cons: The battery runs out eventualy. You have to wear it to have effect.


3. Infrared Vision

You eat for a month a diet vitamin A1 repalced with vitamin A2. ANd you begin te be abel to see near infrared.

Cost: estrapolating form the project around 100$ for a month diet.

Pros: you see better in dark palces.

Cons: to mantain the effects you have to stay on the diet (results about it are not yet publsihed)

Cyberpunk is key to our survival

I have lurked and admired this place for quite awhile; this site has been one of my favorite places on the internet for awhile now.

I am the author of an article called "Cyberpunk is key to our survival" that I just released today.

I would be interested in any input this community has on my article, as I am in the midst of establishing multiple resources for different communities/toward uniting differrent communities (hacker/InfoSec/Cyberpunk enthusiasts, etc.) under a set of ideas/media/resources I have named/branded OuterHeaven.

I believe that this world is facing challenges that necessitate a united front to meet/overcome.

I believe Cyberpunk (including my ideas for OuterHeaven) is a satisfactory means of uniting and rallying the types of minds we will need to overcome these problems.

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!

IRL hacking

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

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:

Productive VR user interfaces

As mentioned in the cyber feel thread, how about we discuss how to properly use VR.

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?

Multiple concepts for a single program and feedback welcome.

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.

Like gally said in Battle Angel Alita.

"Brainchip or not, it doesn't matter. A human being is a human being"

What do /cyber/ think about that? this topic really interests me, I would like to have other people point of view.

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?”

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.

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.

Black Mirror

What do you think of Black Mirror? Is it a genius deconstruction and criticism of our modern, technological age, or just more pseudo-intellectual bullshit?

Hot adblock creampie in google's tight profits


>Alphabet Inc.’s GOOGL -0.30%▲ Google is issuing refunds to advertisers for ads bought through its platform that ran on sites with fake traffic, people familiar with the situation said, as the company develops a tool to give buyers more transparency about their purchases.

>In the past few weeks, Google has informed hundreds of marketers and ad agency partners about the issue with invalid traffic, known in the industry as “ad fraud.” The ads were bought using the company’s DoubleClick Bid Manager.

>Google’s refunds amount to only a fraction of the total ad spending served to invalid traffic, which has left some advertising executives unsatisfied, the people familiar with the situation said. Google has offered to repay its “platform fee,” which ad buyers said typically ranges from about 7% to 10% of the total ad buy.

Have you been doing your part in shitting on corp scum profits?

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:

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:


>The Matrix (and sequels?)



>District 9

>Fight Club

>Johnny Got His Gun

>Soylent Green

>The Truman Show

>Avatar(?) (Not air-bender)

>Repo Men


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


>Brendan Byrnes

>Liar (Romanian)

>Holly Herndon

>Blanck Mass


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?)


>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

/cyber/ the game

Hoy chummers!

So the idea was thrown and why not putting some ideas here to make a cyberpunk game?

There are plenty of game engine available.
