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?

I figured if we just keep sharing vague ideas nothing will ever get done, so I spent a bit of time writing this. None of this has to be permanent, I just wanted you guys to have something to go off.


Name: Interdimensional Relay

Hazard Level: 0

Physical Features: The Interdimensional Relay (IDR) and all variants come in the constant form of a computer-esque machine on some kind of metal lectern. It has a screen which comes in at a size of approximately 11 x 7 inches. The lectern, standing at 46 inches has been observed to be made of a metal with similar properties to aluminium. Although it shares several properties with metal it is slightly different, as it has been concluded that the metal cannot experience corrosion. The computer screen is also accompanied by a small keyboard with keys matching the QWERTY layout.

Behaviour/Traits: Upon activating the IDR, the user will be shown a text saying “Welcome to the Interdimensional Relay, you are currently linked with Dimension X” where X is a number that varies from unit to unit but as of yet always stays the same on a given variant. Below that, text can be seen saying “You are communicating from: Dimension 943”. The user will then be directed to some form of chatroom, similar to an IRC chat, where they can communicate with whoever may be on the other end. Depending on the IDR version accessed, the person who the user talks to will vary, but they will always be from a world similar to ours, but with a couple major differences. Examples include:

-Valerius, who lives in a timeline in which the Roman Empire never fell, and now rules over the planet known as ‘Terra’.

-Cassandra, whose world shows a bleak future of our own, where the planet has been devastated by thermonuclear war.

-Arthur, who lives in a time not far from our own, where humans and androids coexist, and live as equals.

Origin: The first IDR unit was unearthed on [REDACTED], whePost too long. Click here to view the full text.




Seems more scifi and supernatural than cyberpunk imo, not sure how you want things to go.

I thought the idea was upposed to be more based in reality.

It was nice though.



Well, the OP talked about spacetime leaks, but depending on what route we go down I can alter it. I just wanted to at least have some start be made on it.



Yes, that would be great. A city where time leaks are occurring and the government is trying the hardest to keep it a secret while analyzing objects fallen from different dimensions as thoroughly as possible. Please note everyone, I chose the multiverse route so that you all can have as much creative freedom as possible.


Me too


Yes, like the internet technologies from Serial Experiments Lain


Love it. You got the talent. Just more cyberpunky and less supernatury.


A city where there are space leaks from different dimensions is perfect for creative freedom. You make your dimensions however you want (under the criteria of cyberpunk genre afcourse) .



Yeah, I suppose I should find a way to link it in with more cyberpunk themes. Thanks for the feedback

Hey, /cyber/.

I'm doing something that uses some board-tans, and it got me thinking on what's the status of board-tans and mascots overall on 8ch. Over the next few days I'll be asking around other boards, to possibly catalogue them somewhere eventually- do you guys have one, a board-tan, a mascot?

Over a year after the board's creation, was the idea ever approached, did you reach some conclusion, do you want one, not want one? What's your shpiel, basically?

Pic unrelated, I just figure you'd like Bubblegum Crisis.

More details about this came to light.

The government can force individuals to place backdoors in their employers codebase. The individual is not allowed to tell anyone about it, or they face prison time, including their employer.

So you either get fired during code review and are blacklisted by employers for trying to sneak exploits into production, or you go to jail for refusing to do so.

Was always a good time each fall watching all the new kids from USF show up for the first time.

I use to be a regular at this place for a very long time. I have many good memories of the craziness of the place. It started going down hill about 10 years ago, and I could not even bring myself to go this Guavaween.

No cyberpunk clubs around here. If I could ever save up the brouzouf I'd like to start one, but considering how fucking dull this city is I'd be lucky if it lasted a year. Most subculture clubs here last for about 8 months unless they also cater to a lot of normie shit. If I had to deal with fucking gangsta rap and generic fucking nu metal most of the operating time I'd shoot myself.

Even the few places that lasted more than several years have been cutting ties with a lot of the local subcultures and just going to shit.

A full cyber look never goes well in public unless you are a talented manufacturer of all the components necessary to pull it off or have bitcoin to burn a plenty.

Best case scenario for public interaction if you don't want to look like someone heading to a nearby con is people having to get close to you to notice you're decked out with cyber gear, in which case they'd probably note the unique style yet discreet nature of it and breathe easy they weren't visually assaulted by a man wearing an HTC Vive and more loose wires than a battle-damaged terminator in some grungy New York subway for the fifth time that day.

At best, headgear-wise, we're looking at hardware not dissimilar to a pair of sunglasses with the ability to block out most natural light (would need radiant light to avoid eye strain), replacing it with a feed of the outside via cameras mounted on the front. This serves the dual purpose of eliminating outside interferences and the need for regular glasses. Headphones (if included) could have bone conducting ability as well as regular audio and manual noise cancellation for complete immersion when is time appropriate. A pointing stick (aka laptop nipple) can be mounted on the right side for cursor movement and buttons beside it can link to software actions.

The whole thing would basically be a simple OS with an on-screen keyboard, perfect for watching movies, YouTube, or browsing the internet (aka lurking through imageboards, breathing easy you don't have to hide the giant porn banner from the little old lady sitting next to you anymore). Possible facial recognition, AR/VR functionality, and a slew of other software gimmicks could warrant its existence as a non-phone tech item.


With the exception of the first pic, those products are literal trash. The fitbit-looking thing can never function due to how light projection works and the laser keyboard is aids to use for anything except demonstration purposes.

No reason for them to exist either, they're inferior versions of both products they're trying to improve upon (as is the case for most 2-in-1 products).

Where does that video come from? I know it's probably from China, but anything more specific? What system is it?



Build both a normal profile for myself in the system and on the other end build up skills and knowledge to help me avoid it in other ways.

There is no escape from the surveillance state, like a straight jacket the more you struggle the tighter it'll bare down onto you.

Instead give them the illusion of being a "good boy". Play vidya on my windows machine, post pictures on my social media, have a normal email I do shit with. Post on reddit about my hobbies, etc, etc. So my profile looks like a "normal" citizen.

While my other machines are locked down tightly audited *nixs, use jump hosts or wifi networks not my own to keep up my dual life. Multiple networks and multiple cell phones.


>What are you doing to prepare for the inevitable, chummers? Prepared for your SIN?

I'm working to hide myself from as much as I can from nation states and corporations alike by working on minimizing my connection to the clear-net. I don't have social media or connect to any normie sites that require them to know who I really am (besides shopping shit).

I've been also working on VPNing everything, and keeping it separated/segmented from each other. For example, I got a VPN for ebay/amazon and other online purchase, one for other clear-net browsing (reddit/4ch etc) and others for various things on the clear-net. I try to minimize my time on the clearnet though and make as much use of Tor as I can, and I have a dedicated VPN just to connect to Tor as well. I'm hoping to one day fully just stay in darket networks like Tor/i2p/freenet full time, with no need to access the clearnet. My own infrastructure is currently all behind (mumble servers, IRC servers, gitlab, nextcloud VPNs and I'm begining to migrate them to Tor for further anonymity.

All my personal computers do not have intel ME and are coreboot/librebooted.

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.

If people are forbidden from speaking, they'll assume that it can only be because those forbidding them from speaking have no arguments to disprove them. Everyone calls every viewpoint they disagree with contemptible and indefensible regardless of evidence. Sometimes those who the public thinks are discredited are actually correct and the public is wrong. But only some are actually forbidden from articulating those viewpoints publicly. Whichever view is the most heavily censored is the most likely to be true. Let's have an example of this now.


I support lowering the age of consent to 14 because there is no evidence whatsoever of it being harmful for an adult to plow a teenager and the idea that two teens can sex each other but you can't do the same thing with someone older is pure doublethink. If I adopted your policy, I'd get to ban you from speaking your opinion like you've done to us for decades because SJWs of your ilk are invariably raging feminazis who got the age of consent raised because older women can't handle the competition from cute teenage girls, and if this ever got on a mainstream media outlet it would completely destroy you because men already hate feminism. Does that sound like fun to you? I'd get to go on the news and screech autistically about how you deserve to be censored because your views are toxic and problematic. But I'm not going to do that because I have actual evidence and reasoning to support my beliefs, meaning I don't have to censor people who disagree with me. Thanks for proving to the rest of the board that the cyberpunk community has a serious problem with SJWs, by the way.


>an argument about how most arguments on imageboards devolve into political shitflinging devolves into political shitflinging

like poetry

Trying to ban content you don't like goes against the very thing that makes imageboards appealing.

In my humble opinion the problem with /pol/tards isn't that they want to gas jews or whatever the fuck it is they advocate, but that they just can't fucking shut up about it.

This whole problem transcends political views, it's more about attitude.they are under the impression that all IBs are inherently alt-right or national socialist or whatever and they seem to think that everyone who disproves of their infographic dumping ,mindless buzzword shouting or even mildy disagrees with them must be an outsider offended by their oh-so-edgy views instead of their pure retardation(which is ironic since most /pol/tards are probably election newfags who also post on reddit)

You know how some obvious newfags make post on /b/ for some "le epic raid"?they do that because that's the impression of imageboards they got either from their reputation or some shitty e-celebs.first impressions matter and the same is also true for all the /pol/ newfags who seems to think right wing political activism is the core foundation of imageboard culture and then proceed to use them for that exact purpose further cementing this warped view and attraction more people to perpetuate this cycle.They have no respect for the actual culture off individual IBs or boards and only use them because they can say "nigger" or other bad words without getting banned.

I'd love to talk about how i have an awesome plan to make imageboards great again but i don't think it's physically possible.

Trying to reason with these people won't do shit

if they somehow leave IBs might just get flooded with actual SJWs who are, if you'll excuse my radical centrism,just as bad and sticking to alt-chans or other websites won't to shit since this polarized attitude can be found pretty much everywhere

This whole situation will probably only get worse with the 2020 US elections.

This only happened to brainlets. Anyone who understood how to use the phone prefixed their number with *70 to disable call waiting. And only casuals used their main line for data. If you where halfway serious you had a dedicated modem line without "advanced calling features" like call waiting. That shit cost extra and was pointless on a modem line.

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.
