Sneakers has all the markings of Cyberpunk, except for being set Next Sunday A. Vinge's Rainbows End takes us to the verge of the Singularity but not to it. The board does a terrible job of balancing between /tech/'s GNU/autism and outright roleplay. At these gatherings there would almost always be a publisher present, or someone who produced a fanzine, or perhaps someone who hosted a radio talk show about science fiction and fantasy.

Warren Ellis writes a lot of good cyberpunk, and a lot of good mainstream sf that maintains the cynicism of the cyberpunk genre. In the 1990s, the emergence of the World Wide Web and the cyberpunk genre spawned several movies on the theme of the computer-human interface, such as Terminator 2: Judgment Day ( 1991 ), Total Recall ( 1990 ), The Lawnmower Man ( 1992 ) and The Matrix ( 1999 ).

In 2005, Burton, a manufacturer of "extreme" sportswear teamed up with Motorola to produce a line of winter wear known as the "Audex": a jacket, padded hat, and helmet that integrated Bluetooth technology and speakers so that the wearer could enjoy music or manage phone calls without having to manipulate the hardware stored inside of a pocket. [2] Some of the direct challenges in these advancements are the safe integration of electronics into the fabric (without harming the wearer), the management of power to the electronics (providing seamless power supply or reducing its bulk), and the daily potential use/abuse of the material when worn (exposure to elements, etc).

Originally published as serialized drabbles, The City is now available in a single collection. Greatest of all is the Comprise, a planet-wide consciousness which tends to absorb individuals -- the clear inspiration for ST:TNG's Borg (first seen in "Q Who?" which aired two years after this book was published).
