Cyberpunk is dead: Bad Amazon eBooks

A 40 page novella for £4.99 and zero content preview available, allowing human beings to “link themselves to the age of arts and literature” – apparently complete with “analysis, meaning and association” inside? Sorry but not bloody likely, mirror-shaded techn0boy.

Cyberpunk is dead: RPG character Noriaa

Ah, dear miserable loney Norria – with your odd, slightly shrivelled left cybernetic arm, your ‘nasal super filters’ and ‘magnetic feet pads’ – still (for some reason) blindly / faithfully sticking to Cyberpunk’s long since abandoned dystopian trash as if it were remotely cool (read non ironically ‘edgy and hardcore’) – and not far more simply ‘good-bad’ (aka Kitsch.)

– To note however, that such people are not in fact people but algorithms, and that unlike pseudo-people do in fact exist and express real identity – that is, an often dangerous sociopolitical efficacy

And yet, one should be wary of taking such emergent / stuck on mathematical smiles at face value (minor tumorous outgrowths and weird skin folds notwithstanding) because right now ‘they’ are probably working in strict tandem with large faceless metacorps to silently and efficiently fuck you over in various, blandly terrifyingly-smart ways

Have a nice day; it’s your duty
