Cyberpunk - Mainstream?i think culture has shifted due to all things cyber written and inked in the 70s-90s becoming mainstream. i mean, the matrix is /cyb/ af, and that was heavily funded by a big studio. cyberpunk effectively became mainstream. so much of what gibson predicted came true. some of it we're living due to hardware getting so cheap. i have scores of systems laying around that i can throw stuff on. phones are dirt cheap too. we're living it. Thoughts?
worlds.comAn online graveyard. Dusty servers still powered. Strange locals. A digital temple containing records of the Wired's past.

Noodle shopThere was a strange asian news show playing at a noodle shop I ate in earlier today. Half the screen was taken up by subtitles in fifteen different languages, and the anchors had the kind of engineered persona you'd expect to see in a religious recrutment video or a piece of wartime propaganda. I assumed it was created by some enviromentalist organization since the news stories seemed to revolve around animal rights (it was a vegan place and the owners where chinese so it would make sense that they would want to play that).

the cola warFederal District Judge Walter McGovern, who said he liked the taste of Pepsi-Cola today rejected a lawsuit filed to force the Coca-Cola Company to change its new taste back to its original 99-year-old formula. After the hearing, Gay Mullins, the president of Old Cola Drinkers of America, said the organization would file a suit within 30 days to restore the old Coke flavor. ''Today's suit was just to change the labeling, not to change the new Coke back to old Coke,'' he said.
LainOS/Copland theoriestalking about what Lain would theoretically use:what she would use now is way different than the show. i think she definitely would [use bsd]. i think she would write her own tables and run openbsd like a madman. or run a hardened kernel of Gentoo compiled herself with use flags. Or maybe a version of Arch she could script to setup within minutes; small portable with limited attack surface. she would use whatever works, and throw away her work in an instant if she knew she could get more performance. her interest wasn't in protecting herself after all, it was in reaching as many as she could as fast as she could.
Sinofuturismhttps://vimeo.com/179509486 "Sinofuturism is an invisible movement. A spectre already embedded into a trillion industrial products, a billion individuals, and a million veiled narratives. It is a movement, not based on individuals, but on multiple overlapping flows. Flows of populations, of products, and of processes. Because Sinofuturism has arisen without conscious intention or authorship, it is often mistaken for contemporary China. But it is not. It is a science fiction that already exists. ''
