What Happened to Cyberpunk?

What Happened to Cyberpunk? | Digital Delights - Avatars, Virtual Worlds, Gamification | Scoop.it
Cyberpunk writing was “not outside us, but next to us. Under our skin; often, inside our minds.”
Ana Cristina Pratas's insight:

In a sense, it’s a generational thing. In 1980, the writer Bruce Bethke – whose short story “Cyberpunk” inadvertently christened the genre – was working at a Radio Shack in Wisconsin, selling TRS-80 microcomputers. One day, a group of teenagers waltzed in and hacked one of the store machines, and Bethke, who’d imagined himself a tech wiz, couldn’t figure out how to fix it. It was after this incident that he realized something: these teenaged hackers were going to sire kids of their own someday, and those kids were going to have a technological fluency that he could only guess at. They, he writes, were going to truly “speak computer.” And, like teenagers of any era, they were going to be selfish, morally vacuous, and cynical.
