The dystopian cyberpunk future I always wanted (4/100)

01 May 2020

It was only a few shorts months ago that I was proclaiming 2020 as the Cyberpunk future I’d always dreamt about since I was a teen in the early ’80s. A futuristic milestone notched up on the electrified twirling baton of time. Little did I know it would get quite so dystopian and quite so bleak where human contact becomes the vector by which to spread my own demise. I have no doubt the current situation will shake it all up and shape our dystopia for years to come. Perhaps a global pandemic is the catalyst for change that our society seemed to be hankering for the past few years?

In the heady days of November 2008, on a PSX (the original “original” name for the first Playstation console) gaming mailing list, a fellow gamer posted a link to a coupon for a cheap Dell Inspiron Mini netbook with the accompanying description “8gb solid state with ubuntu for 99 quid”.

Viewtube via RSS

03 Jan 2019

Since I maintain the Computer Wargames sub-reddit [1], I monitor a lot of content via RSS using Newsblur [2] as well as keep tabs on a lot of Youtube channels via subscriptions. However, since I monitor SO MANY channels, YouTube’s default interface is slow and unwieldy to do this content devouring on a regular basis. So I miss stuff.
