Cyberpunk Today?

Cyberspace can be defined as:

“A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding…” – William Gibson, 1984

The evolution of the new communicative and technological paradigm birthed a concept possible only through digital distribution and networks. Coined by William Gibson, Cyberpunk, developed a perspective that affected the way we as user-generated nodes apply ourselves to mediums and content. This podcast aims to explore Cyberpunk in our present age, finding links between it’s culture and ours. Could this ecosystem, a universal bio-electronic environment inhabited by knowledge, be a reality?
