me and some other anons have been talking about /cyber/ chatrooms in privacy thread. we have tried tox but it turned out pretty bad. since then ive been making an tor chatroom. im happily inviting you to try it, it looks promising to me. i want this to be /cyber/ chatroom, not mine or yours or anybodys, this is our chatroom. there are no names, nothing. i would like to improve it furthermore, im open to ALL ideas. also, when an more experienced and trustworthy anon appears, i would like to give him the whole chatroom to operate.

guide:

you should download tor if you dont have it already. it gives you very good protection and anonymity. then go to the .onion below and bookmark it when you are there so you dont lose it

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.

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

 No.52402

I agree with you, cyberpunk is already here. But establishing whether the world is cyber enough is a bit sterile imo.

The point of cyberpunk is to give us an understanding of the new mechanics of the world. What should we do with it? Longing for more neon is just a way to remain passive consumers.


 No.52414

>>52402

One thing I would like to see more of in these threads is kind of calling people out when they complain that things aren't cyberpunk enough currently for them. If it isn't cyberpunk enough for you, the answer is that you should contribute interesting ideas/projects you would like to see in the world. Be part of the cyberpunk change, you want to see in the world by working on big ideas yourself instead of waiting on other people to build them for you.


 No.52415

>>52414

We're somewhat saying the same thing (or at least I agree with you). Although I'm not sure I want the world to be cyberpunk, I just think this is where it is headed.

As of being part of the change: I'm just bringing more tech to people around me. Arduino, AlieExpress, Opensource /Free software and all that. Showing people most of the tech they see on tv is already there and they can have it (or more importantly, build it) for a fraction of the price offered by the big players.

>if you're living at street level, generally being streetwise enough to speak current slang, not look like an outsider, know where to get things, know who the players are, and look scrappy and switched-on enough to make muggers think twice.

This is Horrible advice. If you don't belong somewhere, don't go there. And if you go, do not make yourself an obvious victim by approaching people and using words that make it clear you don't belong. And that doesn't mean what you think it means. I garentee you that your imitation slang will immediately recognized , and you will be immediately victimized. Because approaching people on the street and trying to talk to them like you think they talk is a signal you don't belong, and if you are stupid enough to be trying this, you are probably easy to take advantage of. Alot of a slang is neighborhood specific, and people know each other. If you show up somewhere you shouldn't be using 2000's hip-hop slang thinking you fit in, you are going to get robbed.

>using shop windows to check behind you, knowing when you're being trailed, never keeping an open drink, always sitting with your back to the wall, noting exits as soon as you walk in.

Normal People don't use these skills, and again, this can be another signal you are vulnerable. Going somewhere you shouldn't be and looking over your shoulder everyfew minutes, or stopping to stare at empty glass windows to see what you can in the reflection is an indication that you don't belong, your not going anywhere particular, and your vulnerable. You are just maximizing the time you spend in a place you don't belong.

If you have to pass through an area you don't belong, don't. It doesn't make you a cyber punk hacker. It doesn't make you cool. If do have to pass through, don't approach people, don't comment on things. Keep silent. Walk with purpose, but not like your terrified, or fleeing. Believe it or not, you Post too long.

So to summarize this thread, apparently everyone should learn everything about basically everything. It would be nice to reorient this thread a bit by asking something else like.

Now that we have a gigantic thread of stuff people can pick to learn, how do they go about deciding which things are best for them to learn and which are most relevant out of the list of things in this thread?


 No.52413

>>52409

Well, if cyberpunk is low-life high-tech, the point would be to acquire tech knowledge that could bring some cash.

Beyond that, to each its own: just go toward what agrees with you and stick with it long enough to actually acquire some sort of working knowledge.

Another way to look at it is to consider everything is on its way to become more complex or technical. Being curious about how everyday stuff works is a good attitude to have I'd guess.

I think everyone here just doesn't actually get that things don't get built overnight, and just because you think an idea should exist because it is cool doesn't mean that it is feasible within budget constraints or profitability-analysis.

We are still barely in the opening stages of technology as a whole anyway and we are all young enough that if we don't pollute our bodies with a bunch of garbage we will live to see 50-100 years from now what happened.

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.

Sterling is not saying it is a good thing, or that cyberpunk should be favela chic. He's just speculating on the future and offers an analysis. Favela chic could be one of the possibilities.

This is the thing, this kind of shit just doesn't exist anymore in most white countries. Even in places like detroit there is too much policing, you can't just go live in abandoned buildings and take over neighborhoods like you can in 3rd world hell holes where anything that looks abandoned is up for grabs.

This is honestly kind of sad to me. I'd love to live in 1970s new york where you can just live in random abandoned lofts for free. Block after block of abandoned buildings.

There are places "for grabs", but they are in cities/boroughs you might not want to live in (just like those places in 1970s New York). Maybe your expectations of standard of life or comfort are too high for them.

No this is bullshit, I know people who moved to Detroit during the collapse and who bought trashed out houses in southern Atlanta, it is livable but it isn't unpoliced. Squatting is very much enforced against in these sorts of areas for the most part at least in the current political climate. You just don't get this kind of shit like you see in Brazil where people live in shacks they built for 5-10 years continuously without being forced to clear out. Just doesn't happen in the US, anti-homeless patrols happen with a bi-monthly or every 6-months type of regularity it would seem. It just doesn't compare.

I'm in Europe, so tell me because I don't know: homeless people do live somewhere, don't they? I had read some stuff about homeless communities. I remember they get some police visits, but they manage to establish some sort of communities.

Around here, there are squats that eventually get dislodged, but it only means the rhythm is a bit faster (6 months to a year usually instead of the 5-10 years you speak about).

That said, the (European) web of people that meet and connect in these places is maintained despite "evacuations". Information is shared (through fanzines, word of mouth…) about new places and people travel from squat to squat.

I don't know for sure, I didn't look to much into the document other than skim it. Journalists were reeing about discord nhadzees during the trump election so they probably knew it from there. If I had to guess, they got the links from cuckchan. discord is not accepted anywhere on 8ch or at least the boards I lurk and /cow/ wordfilters it to "botnet" or something similar.

journalists were contacted re the bloodsports mess but they all ignored or walked away once they got an eyeball full of the sheer autism. "academics" were apparently told to stay away from it also, allegedly, according to a VC recording of krautandtea but I don't think academics involved mentioned this shitfest to anyone irl.

I stopped following the ibs thread too closely for a couple of months now as not much was happening, I'm looking at it again because kraut is back and he's really angry. Theory is, he's going after his hitlist again, he's started making vids shitting on people and metokur's fb, twitter and youtube all got hit at once which is a coincidence.

>If you don't have a place to sleep, find a gas station, buy a coffee, take it to a table and don't get up until the morning, you can sleep on your arm.

Yeah, thats now how that works. Those are the rules that apply to middle class people of the correct ethnicity etc. Homeless people might not be allowed to sit at table at all exactly because everyone knows they do this shit. You will get asked to leave, and if you don't you the cops will show up, where I live they don't usually arrest; But if you make yourself a bother to them, you will get arrested routinely. You can also go to the next city, but bigger cities tend to be better for the homeless, there are more people and better social programs. Either way, getting 8 hours of sleep like that isn't going to happen.

because it is dead. The phone system literally used to be premised on client side security and obsecurity. Modern phone systems (except perhaps pay phones) don't remotely work that way. Subscribers are identified and authenticated centrally more like logging into a website than allowing client phone to decide when you have paid or not.

Phreaking has decreased in importance as prices on telephony has fallen, and alternatives have emerged (Voip, Whatsapp, Skype, etc).

As it turns out Modern corporations are not completely incompetent, and have enough people working on security that a single individual is incredibly unlikely to be able to take them on, and that if they had the skillset to do so , they would have incentive not to - they could find employment that vastly outstrips the phone bill.

The person talked about using a technician set on an old analog line. This is literally the equivalent to plugging a phone in at someones house. I have no clue how you are supposed to turn this into money. Like the person said, coper lines are falling out us. And having people travel to you to make phone calls on your clunky technician set outside someones house is ridiculous.

But hey man, i have been phreaking wifi for years. I stand outside a cofee shop and plug into the wireless. I haven't figured out how to turn that into brouzouf yet.

Telephony is still intresting from a security perspective. But probably more so to governments and surveilance technology companies producing sting rays, possible attempts to decrypt calls, and dumping mobile phone contents for forensic analysis.

This place is so slow, and asynchronous. Its actually suited to longer form communication. Imagine trying to have a real time conversation here. The dynamic is much more akin to letters than to conversation.

You're talking about bringing reddit here. There will never be an excuse for that, no matter how much you like going on their liberal politics section. Neck yourself, kike.

Whatsup with the ridiculous reddit inferiority complex? Virtually everyone here pretends reddit is plebs while simultaneously telling shit tier unbelievable stories about either how excellent a hacker they are, or saying the most cyberpunk thing they have ever done is steal candybars.

Meanwhile, people who actually build shit, or have expertise seem not to be here, but on reddit. And it makes sense - they get personal recognition, and they don't have to put it with idiots ranting about Jewish people.

Does every free speech haven essentially just degenerate into unironic

>Neck Yourself, kike ?

poltards? Is there actually any OC, or anything at all that ever occurs here?

Its funny you say that because I'm known for writing really long 'letter' emails to my friends but the difference is that here the topics that get written on here extensively are often really pointless and dumb. Half the time it will be two people in a mind numbing duel about semantics for page after page derailing interesting topics.

The only really long-form conversations that are justifiable here are tech-related ideas/explanations that often can't fit into a smaller post because you have to unpack layers of abstraction for people who aren't used to jargon often. The meandering philosophical whimsicalness is often hopelessly boring and skimmable. There is often not a very good content vs word-count ratio to justify these rambles.

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

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

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.

Except someone on welfare can always get a job and move on

Under this system you're fucked, you're indentured for life either you like it or you don't


 No.52224

>>52222

Not really. If you lose your state provided job you lose your welfare and have nowhere else to go, it's only if there's little welfare that you can become independent because welfare destroys opportunities. Welfare isn't created out of thin air, it's either created by extortion of other's wealth, stealing it, be it via inflation or taxes or outright forced labor. If the state monopolizes all industry then it's free to decide who and how gets its reaches and so anyone who tries to defy the current order is just rejected and has nowhere to go because all is centered around the system.

This board is mostly bickering about what or isn't cyber and what to post or what not to post

Shut the fuck up lets talk about some cyber feels.

>exchanging less-than-legal information with anonymous citizens on a darknet forum

>hacking a personal account/network and getting a distant view of a stranger
