But first, let’s take a moment to examine what ‘cyberpunk’ is all about. At its core, cyberpunk shows how advances in technology—particularly computers and cybernetics—might lead to exploitation and marginalization of the general populace by increasingly influential corporations that come to control nearly ever facet of daily life. In short, it’s Nineteen Eighty-Four with a more technological and corporate bent, a clash between, as Wikipedia describes it, “high-tech and low life.” But remember, it’s science fiction. Mega corporations with the same rights as human beings? The prevalence of corporate products and advertisements in our daily lives? The increasing dependence on technology, wholly owned and controlled by corporate entities, for human interaction and public discourse? Nah, it’ll never happen!
