I am never contributing to a USA company or government projects. Anonymous 10/01/2022 (Sat) 22:21:10 No.462 [Reply]
Giving them technology is a mistake since they're all just gangsters and immediately sell out any tech to the worst enemies of the Western world without any concern about how it will be abused and invite enemy nations to co-opt the country and corporations for personal profit while lying to everyone that it's for world peace and global cooperation; they're actually just selling Americans and the entire Western world out to enemy nations. All the Western universities are the same thing, anything you give them is immediately handed over to China, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc. for free because they're captured institutions that have been weaponized to steal Western tech. You're insane, absolutely insane, if you are giving technology to USA universities, companies, or government. They need to be shut down because they're just stealing everything from our country for China. These Federal agent spies for China and Israel put other spies in charge of the companies and institutions to steal all our technology and giving them anything is only hurting Americans further by giving rival countries all our tech advantages. The buck stops here. I will not give the USA, its corporations, or universities ANYTHING until they assassinate these spies and lock down technological secrets.And if you're giving tech to them, watch your back because I'm coming after you.

>>667 Niggers are an artificial lifeform created by gibs >>465 Outside of it not being a race/gender thing, he's basically right. Real domestic manufacturing will always happen because it has intrinsic advantages. Artificial demand for domestic manufacturing is just a way to placate the voter class. It's literally welfare.
>>668 Learn to code, amirite? Oh, the people who made trillions and impoverished you by forcing you into cutthroat wage competition against Paco and Chang certainly won't force you into cutthroat wage competition against Pajeet. That's just silly.
>>678 >can't even dream of doing anything but asking for handouts (wages) wew Sell something you bum. >the people who made trillions and impoverished you by forcing you into cutthroat wage competition against Paco and Chang Unlike paco and chang, I actually have marketable skills. Introducing them to the labor pool increased my market value (because my technical work is still irreplaceable, there's a larger demand/supply for it, and I'm now eminently better qualified for lead roles than an otherwise similarly skilled non-native due to western-culture communication skills), not reduced it. >certainly won't force you into cutthroat wage competition against Pajeet. That's just silly. Oh no, I'll never have to do web development outside of consulting in my life, how terrible. You're complaining that your treatment is becoming harsher, as the gap between you and paco/chang/rajesh is getting smaller. But you were always a loser, which is why your lot is in with the other losers; you have a fleeting geographical privilege, born out of the large-world model that's been the enemy of commerce and the target of technology and innovation since the birth of the caravan. >Learn to code, amirite? That's a good option yeah. You sound like you've got no capacity for initiative or self determination though so you better learn to love the curry munchers, since the limit of your ability is probably tard wrangling them for a bloated institution.
>>680 Kek. The Pointy Haired Bosses don't understand any of those big words and they couldn't care less how "qualified" you think you are, not when Pajeet will do all the same things you do for two cents a month. Pajeet may not do them very well. Most of Pajeet's code may be copied-and-pasted from Stackexchange, original comments and all. The PHBs don't know the difference between good code and bad code, they just know that the Big Men in the c-suite will toss them a bonus and a doggie treat for bumping the profit margin up for one business quarter, and the concept of a future more than one business quarter away does not exist for them. >You're dumb! You should SELL something like I do! Pajeet can sell stuff too. There are people with IQs fifty points higher than yours starving to death in gutters in Bangalore and Rio de Janeiro and Lagos. And your boss knows they'll work for less. The people you're confabulating might want to buy stuff from you know they can get it from them for less. There used to be this concept called the Social Contract, you know. One of the unstated assumptions was that one of the reasons governments exist is to prevent the banksters from starving you to death by making you compete on wages with people who live in mud huts. That idea got between Goldman-Sachs and a penny, so it fell by the wayside a long, long time ago. Though this was not so long ago that a few rich kids in Western nations can't still convince themselves that they must be special just because their jobs haven't gone to China or India or Mexico or Botswana yet.

Posers and posing Anonymous 01/07/2023 (Sat) 00:30:05 No.531 [Reply]
Is there anything wrong with being a cyberpunk poser? Bear in mind the aspects of dystopia we are already subjected to. The main things we are missing from cyberpunk fiction is the cool stuff. Dressing the part just helps set the mood. Using the correct style of tech feels better. If we have to live in this world, the least we can do is our bit to shape it to be more schway. In the absence of some sort of appropriate mega-corporation's products don't submit to crapple's minimalism. Get something chunky with plenty of buttons. Wear a Casio watch, carry a laser. A fucking LASER! Think about how weird that really is compared to say, 60 years ago. If nobody in the street looks like the artwork on the cover of an old cyberpunk novel, be that person yourself. Someone has to do it. I am a poser, I have no shame in admitting that. I possess knowledge that is nowhere near close to sufficient to be a hacker. What little I do know about using computers in a more secure, even rebellious manner, I routinely ignore because of the effort involved. It is my preference to simply look as if the world is full cyberpunk already. Fake it till you make it, be the change you want to see and so on. So put on some mirrored sunglasses, strap various gadgetry to your body and get out there sometimes. Spread the aesthetic because the corporations have failed to do it for us. Ideas and suggestions welcome. For example, I'm considering a pair of trainers that light up when you walk. Any other options you have in mind?

Fuck lame "high tech" VR and automasturbators Anonymous 12/13/2021 (Mon) 09:27:28 No.263 [Reply] [Last]
We live in an era of cyberpunk "lite". All the dystopian components are in place, like behemoth corporate control of govt, mass surveillance, crappy automated services. But there's no space economy, no galactic federation. No exploration. Were stuck. And rather than make the new shit, the powers are instead looking at how to enslave people inside a virtual reality. Why build when you can breed more slaves? Why do anything IRL that can be done with a bit of processing power that fools your mind into believing, releasing its sweet dopamine, which costs essentially nothing, and can be altered or removed at the will of the programmer. And poof its gone, your whole world, all those tokens you earned and sprites you so carefully assembled. Stop. Don't fall for this shitty excuse for a technological world with its bad plot. Seek the truth outside. Its up to you.

And, hopefully, find antidotes. Well, what could possibly go wrong? >So far, so inspiring. But when the US Agency for International Development (USAID) floated the Deep Vzn idea, some scientists spotted a problem: releasing virus details online could allow bad actors to replicate deadly diseases and make them worse. >After a chorus of complaints, USAID mothballed the open-source aspect of Deep Vzn. And then? >Two years later, this may seem a mere historical footnote. Not so. Some observers fear the return of “predictive research(opens a new window)”.

>>263 Nah. Cyberpunk is a genre created in the late 1970s by smug Canadian Boomers who hated America and spent the 1980s gaslighting themselves into continuous state of abject miserable helpless terror, confabulating that Ronald Reagan was going to destroy the world. Cyberpunk is humorless, didactic, over-the-top grimderp parody of what they perceived as America's excessive lolbertarian tendencies. It explores dystopian worlds of pollution, anarchy, and strongarm rule by General Motors. The societies depicted are always utterly lawless. There are no lawyers. This is hilarious for several reasons, not least of which was that, for all that their mimeographed zines proclaimed that they were doing this in the name of Originality, Pohl and Kornbluth had already tread this ground to the point of grinding ruts into it thirty years before. Another, though, is that all around the world, the locals say that the stereotypical American introduces himself by saying "I'll sue you" rather than "hello." Cyberpunk tilts at a strawman bearing no resemblance to anything that ever existed outside of the minds of a handful of sanctimonious Canadian acidheads watching the war in Vietnam on television. No, what we have today isn't lawless superhyperultramegalocorporate anarchy enforced by General Electric's fleet of laser death satellites. We have anarchotyranny instead. In American cities that were the envy and marvel of the world a century ago, feces and discarded hypodermic needles are everywhere on the streets and mobs of VIbrantly Diverse Cultural Enrichers beat and rob and occasionally murder passerby, burn and loot by broad daylight, while Officer Friendly and the rest of the Badge & Gun Gang stand there and watch, with their thumbs stuck up their asses. "There's nothing we can do." "The DA won't charge them." "Orders is orders." "I don't like it, but little Susie needs braces." "I can't lose muh pension." Their orders are to wait for a huh-WITE! person to raise a hand in his own defense. Then, suddenly, the city government isn't so helpless or inept. Then, suddenly, it's "OY YAME THUH LAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR" and here come Officer Friendly and the boys, guns blazing and truncheons a-swinging, to put that horrible RAYCISS in his place and force him to confront his privilege, so that his face can be all over the Internet with breathlessly recounted tales that he is a "Nazi militia extremist radicalized on 4chan" as a smirking Boomer Struldbrugg judge presides over the show trial. Maybe today there won't be enough purple-haired SJW pederasts and Vibrant Diversities on the jury to find him guilty, but he'll still be unemployable for the rest of his life. The process is the punishment, and the process is very, very selectively applied. Cyberpunk is a guided tour of polluted Dickensian misery and lawlessness. But instead we got pic related. I think I'd rather live in Night City.

>>653 Tl;dr Canadians ruined sci-fi like they ruin everything.
Damn right. But this would be realistic cyberpunk, or did you think /cyb/ shit revolves around freedom? It's about small decentralized groups struggling against dystopian tyranny. It's about using DIY tech against big tech, the scrapper frugal life, in style. We just don't have any of these, specially no style. >But there's no space economy, no galactic federation. No exploration. Were stuck. That's the only good thing about it. Space and muh science larping are one of the gayest things about our age.

This board seems like it has been abandoned, to be honest this whole site may end up as another abandoned corner/layer of the internet i will not be surprised if the owners have left this place, anyway if this is the case then it has been an honour, but i have also come with a question, can it be argued that East Asia is the most cyberpunk place at the moment? Of course it has influenced cyberpunk a lot that is certain, i do not expect many replies if any at all as activity has diminished, but hopefully someone will respond, if not then Godspeed, hopefully we will all meet again somewhere else one day, wherever you all are.

Pi network is a cryptocurrency that you can earn with your phone, just install the "Pi network" app on your phone, enter the code "Berssange" and enter the app once a day to prove that you are not a bot and that's it, you’ll earn an amount of currency per hour, the app is lightweight and doesn’t waste resources, the currency is new and priceless, it’s a good time to enter, then just sell the currency when it enters the market. Good opportunity to get Pi for free and profit much later.

Never trust anyone who offers you an "official" app/program/way of using it, the means of chatting on the internet, that survived for the longest (and will for decades to come) are those, that have just a simple protocol specification, that others can follow. IRC stood the test of time just because of this. If there was a central authority, an official client, proprietary server side or anything like that, it would have been abounded long ago. IRC is insecure though, you can try to secure it to some degree, but it's still some frankenstein solution, instead of something that has reasonable privacy out of the box like a self-hosted XMPP server with OTR/OMEMO.

The prime movement of humanity is superheated plasma of cosmic background radiation, puppet stringing along blood pressure and the 4th-dimensional potential of water consumption. Horsepower alone can be derived as a dimension of life through pressure dynamics alone. But my real secret is most of my family has been saved by surgery and medical science. I never touch a hospital bed. I have other secrets. I am just happy to escape as a Zen monk on fire. — I am Ra. We are not happy with our Venusian scientist claiming he is not helped by any here for this. :) — All are free to share in my "not a cult." Test subjects may apply for their food allowances per day. And a share of life insurance for their families.
