Hi I'm a big fan of the whole aesthetics of sorta cyber, sorta elektromagnetik stuff.. any of you folks interested in electronics like that?

And where is everyone?

I like technical illustrations, like schematics, diagrams, blueprints, even UML, things like that.

Honestly same. It's really cool how companies used to design products with the user repair in mind. The beautiful service manuals that used to come with gadgets are so pretty. Sucks that everything sucks now

I work in a middle-big IT corpo as a SysAdmin and as part of my apprenticeship I hopped through some departments to get a wider spectrum of skills. I also went to the electrotechnical department and learned some things about electromagnetism, it really made me think if I chose the right path as I really love doing stuff with cables and just how electronics work. It's something I look up to one day putting more time and effort into.
Sadly you can't really use the skills on modern products. Just look at a modern platine that has like 20 layers, you just cant lain-like manipulate it.

I definitely see what you mean, but at the same time I think there's a whole lotta room for creativity depending on your knowledge/understanding. Of course you can't get at the inner layers of PCBs and modifying silicon chips are impossible, but there's still plenty of room around those constraints.

Look at this project that repurposes the FPGA in some Cisco modem: https://tomverbeure.github.io/2021/05/16/Pixel-Purse-LED-Cube.html
The Xilinx Zynq chips on obsolete bitcoin miner control boards are also completely reprogrammable https://github.com/xjtuecho/EBAZ4205

And, "pic related," why not design your own PCB or even silicon? Hardware development is more accessible than ever now, with things like that skywater foundry pdk
