So much cyberpunk stuff seems to take place in cities. How'd things be going in rural areas?

 No.46544

Once lab-grown meats become widespread, rural areas and the farms therein will fall even further into obscurity. The way backwoods hick towns champion "conservative values," fundamentalist Christianity, and extremely closed-minded worldviews have already contributed to this.

As the world pushes further into an eco-friendly green era, people will begin growing vegetables in artificial environments that are not strictly tied to having shitloads of land.

Who knows? Maybe they'll be swallowed up by urbanization and the sprawl. Maybe they'll remain a haven for Luddites seeking refuge from the "horrors" of the cyberpunk big city. Maybe they'll see a resurgence in popularity after automation takes over and we're all living on Universal Basic Income.

Why be? Rural China in some parts is already overflowing with toxic wastes and trash that comes with river streams for several decades now. Many other places too. As human population rises it'll be harder to evade devastating effects of un-eco-friendly consumption. I would say cyberpunk will bring juicy megapolis waste closer to the countryside making them more the same.

Cyberpunk in Rural areas will look the same, just more advanced tech. As connectivity rises I imagine hidden server farms, data dumps and illegal internet activities. Just like with the drug trade now.

If its undesirable for the city as it will be around people, it will be in the rural areas.

I'd wager something like this would happen. Cities would have the most interesting and financial power to keep living standards up to some degree of "habitable" while smaller towns can't even hire lawyers to defend them, and since they don't represent that many people, even politically they don't matter.

Pollution and desertification would literally destroy everything not part of a city, where atmosphere can be controlled to some degree.

>>46548

Then again, this is also an interesting point. Big industries require a lot of people, which leads them to mass together but automation sorta solves that "problem". I still don't think that will work since people will just change jobs and industry staying close together does help them to some degree, plus the service industry is still a thing and it will favour big cities with monuments and landmarks to visit.

Words have an actual meaning, they aren't technical. Liberal comes straight out of "liberty" and it's the antonym of authoritarian.

You mean progressive. They can say they are liberal as much as they want, if they still need some authoritarian figure to enforce their rules, they aren't liberal at all. Most liberals despise those little shits anyway, crying to papa gubment when they need a strong arm to save them from the offensive people.

>let's not get into an autistic semantic argument, k?

Oh, we're not even scratching this shitshow. In terms of cyberpunk, punks themselves would be mostly Progressive actually, embracing technology and supporting change in society all the time. Only a minority would hold to old traditions out of respect and because they acknowledge their value.

Most corporations would actually be Conservative, preferring to maintain the status quo and stagnating culture and the mind so they could keep control using the same methods for as long as possible.

If anything, it's incredibly ironic to a disgusting level that the ideology that most aligns with the punks (Progressive Libertarians) has been so throughout co-opted by a bunch of faggots that couldn't be possibly more pro-corp, buying from Apple and Starbucks and falling pretty to Hollywood while believing the government always has their best interest in mind and will change to meet their requests.

Definition of Liberal:

"Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality."

Definition of Authoritarian:

"favouring or enforcing strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom"

Literally just googled both terms and those were the first results. If you want to argue otherwise you're gonna have to do better than "nuh-uh, that's not how it is!"

>>46802

Conglomerates of humans have been happening for a long time, yes. But not on the same scale since the industrial revolution. If you had a graph showing you the density of population per square kilometer, you'd have a major spike in certain spots at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution that slightly expanded and increased as time went on, something far more massive than any city seen before.

>implying robots = free shipping

Shipping doesn't have to be free, it just needs someone to pay for it, usually the client or final user. And considering that we've already reached globalist levels of trade, where things produced in China are sold in America, we've already gone past that point. Shipping might not be free, but it's not a reason to keep things together that much.

And that's not even what the other Anon was talking about. People join up together in clusters because a single factory requires hundreds of people. A large industrial park can house thousands for several jobs and those employees are not gonna commute every day from a local village nearby, they'll get an apartment or something similar nearby their workplace.

People move and settle the closest they can to where they'll be working. If you have a place with lots of jobs, there will be lots of people nearby as well.

Conversely, if a factory no longer needs that many people (if it uses robots instead, for instance) then there aren't that many jobs and people don't cluster so much.

In fact, going with your problem about "free shipping", it becomes far more profitable to spread out and cover ground. Your company settling where no other in the same field has gone before means you're closer to the clients, so robots do spread people around quite a lot with a double effect.

For reference, search for "chinese robot postal office". It shows a very large postal office in China staffed with about 2-3 guys and a few hundred robots that do most of the work, with those 2 tasked with special tasks or making sure things are going alright. Instead of 50-80 people sorting packages, there's only 3. Extrapolate to an industry and you can see what that means.

Well, this is a complex question.

It is possible to find cyber-stuff even in remote areas (Old Factories, Industrial Zones, Plants, Sewer installation or other like infrastructures), but this is way more hard to find. You expect to find such things near mid-cities.

Also, my countryside isn't representative of cyberpunk style, because even in 2017, French countryside is still relatively empty compared to big cities, of course, Eastern-europe, Nothern USA and Asia would be good candidates to Rural-cyberpunk.

The more the population, the more the infrastructures and buildings, so, your chances increases.

Yes, but a clear majority of the population was rural. Humans had an overall rural-based lifestyle up until the Industrial Revolution, when the majority migrated into cities and we became an urban species. I stand by my claim this will reverse post-automation, because the very factors that caused cities to become so popular will disappear. Cities will hollow out like Detroit did when manufacturing jobs vanished. They won't stop existing, but they will stop being the norm.

>implying robots = free shipping

Automation = more stuff can be efficiently made on a smaller scale. You won't have to ship in half the stuff you do today. Besides, shipping will only become less expensive. Even today, you can already set up a machining shop in your small-town garage if you're so inclined. Logistics will advance in leaps and bounds once smart algorithms start organising everything.

The main problem will be stopping a gov/corp alliance from extending copyright and artificially enforcing scarcity.

My take on this semantic disagreement:

The definitions of liberal vs conservative can easily be interpreted in very different ways.

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/liberal?s=t

http://www.dictionary.com/browse/conservative?s=t

Non-political definitions of each word:

>Liberal as in used liberally, often, a lot of; of liberty, which is to say, freedom

>Conservative - as in used conservatively, not often, not a lot of; resistant to change; I suppose the political philosophy of "conservatism" is right wing because it is resistant to change brought by progressivism

These definitions can be used in different contexts. Liberal can either mean large, powerful government (the popular use of the word), or, numerous freedoms. Specifically, I believe the freedoms referred to in these contexts are personal freedoms, rather than economic freedoms.

Conservative can be used to mean small government (popular use of the word), or few freedoms.

Also, leftist policies generally grant many personal freedoms (or as they are also called, social freedoms; such as freedom of sexuality, freedom of speech, etc.) and few economic freedoms (high taxes, mandated health care, excessive business regulation, etc.) Rightist? policies are generally the opposite - fewer personal, or social, freedoms, and more economic freedoms.

This is how you can have socially left policies (many social freedoms) and economically right policies (many economic freedoms) at the same time. There is not one left or one right. I suppose the 4-directional political spectrum may be is used to account for this, among other things.

They are also politically defined differently based on where the person you are asking is from. Liberal parties in Europe and I think even Canada are different from in the US.

On topic:

I think the gathering of people in cities in recent times is less due to industry itself and more due to the fact that there are already a lot of people there, making it a good place for modern industry. I'm mostly using Portland, OR to back this up but it applies to other cities as well.

In the Industrial Revolution, most industries were more like trades than they are today - textiles, lumber, and finished goods. Now, most city jobs are either in the tech or service industry. Factories are built farther away and create communities around them, a more organic version of what >>46808 described. I believe the practice of building "official" factory communities was also more common in early Industrial Europe than it was in the US.

Besides that, the non-specialized jobs aren't any different in urban vs suburban areas. There are always fast food and retail jobs. As mentioned above most factories are not in or near cities.

As for rural vs urban/suburban (since they are basically the same in terms of industry - Mountain View is pretty much suburban afaik, but San Francisco has plenty of tech companies as well and it is completely urban), I don't think it would change much since people are already not living very close to factories. People live in cities because they like city life. Rural areas are and have been for a long time, fairly free of major industry, especially as of late with the systematic elimination of the coal industry in the US. Some towns still thrive on logging, but that's the only industry that really exists out there. Tight knit farming communities aren't common in the US because farms and ranches are and have historically been very large compared to Europe, where, if I'm not mistaken, you more commonly have farming villages.

So basically, I see no reason it would be any different. If anything cities will get bigger and the sprawl will expand, with organic factory communities fading away due to increasingly fewer human workers required to maintain the factories. Rural areas will still be extremely isolated.

(cont.)

I think artisan "industry" (if you can call it that, it seems like the two are antonyms) will likely continue expanding as the human touch becomes less and less common in manufacturing. This could bring a return to a more Middle Ages? type of city, with craftsmen setting up shop in cities. I know in Portland and other hipster infected places this kind of thing is increasingly popular. The most common examples I see are breweries, coffee shops, and soap makers. Tailors, cobblers, tanners, and the like could easily make a comeback. The "vintage mountainman aesthetic" is already practically the norm here, and is even seeing a fall in popularity as far as I've observed. Services like barbers are also popping up, as opposed to the generic "Great Clips" or other Asian salons.

I've also seen yuppies populate once rural, conservative towns - usually with universities. A great example of this is Missoula, MT. I think Bozeman has received similar treatment.

This is quite a rant… It's hard to compose a coherent piece in this text box and I didn't think to do type it externally and paste until I was done…

I'd frickin' love for cobblers to make a comeback where I live. Lately I've been in a "buy once, buy quality, buy for the long term" kind of mood. I'm tired of expensive sweatshop sneakers falling apart after only a year. My next daily-wear shoes are going to be repairable.

I agree completely, but didn't mention how I felt about this potential change because it isn't really /cyber/.

It's the one good part about hipster retardation. "What's old is new" eventually results in an accidental return to some traditional methods.

I'm particularly grateful for the increase in popularity of artisan soaps. Modern mass produced "soap" is full of harmful chemicals and usually dries your skin as a side effect. I've been using real, natural soap for over 6 months now and my skin feels so much better. I also don't feel like I have to shower as often because it helps to properly hydrate the skin rather than remove everything from the surface and drying it out. It also lasts exponentially longer. I bought a ~4.5oz? bar over 6 months ago, and it's only 2/3 used now. I am still using regular shampoo though, only because I haven't found a company that makes inexpensive shampoo bars. I used a regular bar for a little while but it was a pain because it doesn't really lather, making it harder to clean my hair with. Once I have the means I'll definitely be switching to real soap for all my bathing needs.

More tanners seem to also be popping up, or at least leatherworkers. I see a lot of yuppie companies making leather bags and such. Leather wallets and shoes have always had their place among wealthier men, though it seems that known brands like Prada and Gucci are losing popularity in favor of smaller artisans. I'm not very specifically informed on popular fashion though.

In real life though, it's the lunatics with polebarns that are creating motorized abortions that inspire academics to study swarm behavior and hysteresis to provide corps the basis to make something like Big Dog. But we had it first. Without the theory and math and patents. Farmers helped give the impetus for personal computers and until recently there was a UNC dairy operation that direly depended on a venerable Apple II.

I've noticed that too. It seems like a lot of things start off as something a handful of rednecks are tinkering with, but it doesn't work well enough to depend on, or isn't very versitile. Then some university or r&d firm spends billions of dollars to make a version that works well and costs several million dollars each, made with the latest tech and manufacturing processes. Then, now that the finer points of the design are known, Cletus builds one out of worn out car parts, plywood and a metric fuck ton of zip ties. Then finially it gets handed off to urbanites for some polish. Simplifying the build process and swaping out some of the more improvised parts for more common off the shelf stuff.

Cletus's design is almost free, and might survive a nuclear blast, but you are going to need an end mill, a welder, and a belt tentioner from a 1987 jeep wranger.

The urbanite's design isn't nearly as cheap, or as durable, but you only need a hand drill, some jb weld and you can get 90% of the parts on amazon.

Gibson wrote a few chapters in Count Zero, Virtual Light and most of his last book The Peripheral in rural areas.

It's fun for me, who grew up in a trailer, looking at his take on hicks in the high-tech future.

In Count Zero one of the characters has a super computer in his barn.

Ah I remember that section of CZ. He had quite a lot more than a super computer around his place

USA should have similar urban/rural contrasts, but I believe this one picture is shopped.

Just moved to ruralville usa myself, renovating and living in shithole turn of the century house doing a simmilar but poor-mans version of this, one peice at a time. Care to detail more for inspiration?

from my experiences, the cyberpunk aspects of rural life currently boil down to:

>internet connected agricultural equipment (IoT)

>megacorp gene modified crops

>proprietary software and specialized OS for agricultural equipment (the farmer may own the tractor, but the software is licensed) so some farmers hack their equipment

>metadata based farming techniques

>drone overflights of fields/agridrone services

if I had to take a guess where all of this was headed, i would say it is likely that once everything goes full automated, farmers will just rent/sell land to megacorps who will conduct every step from farm to table using automation

I live out in a rural area.

The best encapsulation is a small hub of high technology in the middle of nowhere. Or working on a network from a remote terminal in a grain silo which has a fiber over the air connection to the main data center.

That's what I did up until last week. Sometimes It would be working from home. Other times I'd drive to the nearest network tower, tap into the router, and then do work from there.

It was rather nice working on a networking issue in the middle of nowhere with only the gentle breath of wind and the occasional sound of wildlife in the distance.

The farm in the foreground is shooped into Millennium Park in downtown Chicago.
