Esto va para largo y no puedo evitar sentirme como un brasas infinito que no para de repetir lo mismo todo el rato. (Me pasé 2 años explicando que es el cp en todas mis presentaciones, espero que lo entendáis.)

Pero ahí vamos, el cyberpunk ¿eso se come?
El cyberpunk surge en los años 80 como herencia de la ciencia ficción de nueva ola de los 60-70. Y no es bautizado hasta el 84 por Gardner Dozois. Es un genero donde se mezclan cosas ricas: noir, ci-fi, politica, punk y distopía. (Delicioso)

Oh hey this is my field, so just to add: #cyberpunk orientalism, like all orientalism, wasn't just rooted in contemporary fear of "Japan As #1", but also in desire. And maybe it's obvious, but it bears repeating: that fear and desire goes back at least as far as late 19c. /1
Racism directed at Japan (though I suppose it's true for most all racism) always has that double edge. For every Japonisme art movement, there's a Japanese Exclusion Act. For every GI with a geisha fantasy there's a "Know Your Enemy". /2
There's a very specific history to '70s/'80s economic nationalism, one involving US foreign policy from 1945-52, when the US occupied Japan following WW2. Tl;dr: the US took a very active role in rebuilding and reshaping the Japanese postwar economy. /3

[thread] Alguns elementos específicos do gênero CYBERPUNK formam toda a estética e o contexto político-social de quando essas histórias começaram a ser contadas.

Para cada compartilhamento desse tweet, vou comentar sobre uma dessas características do cyberpunk.
1. O principal tema que pode resumir todo o conceito do subgênero (exceto pela estética) é:
"Alta tecnologia. Baixa qualidade de vida."
Esse é o drástico resultado do capitalismo: não é impossível imaginar uma criança faminta que pode fazer um post nas redes sociais sobre isso.
2. O futuro de uma narrativa cyberpunk é próximo do nosso.
O subgênero é uma charge sócio-tecnológica, que amplifica a tecnologia e também o abismo social pra fazer um retrato crítico de nossa sociedade.
As techs são logo superadas, mas os problemas sociais são sempre os mesmos.

One of the most down-to-earth and factual description of encryption and how it should actually be depicted in #scifi, #cyberpunk and media in general is found in this short piece by @ian_mallett: plus.google.com/u/0/+IanMallet…
I'll attach the statements for when G+ shuts down (thread):

Pues me voy a animar como dije el otro día a hacer un proyecto 365, pero en vez de haciendo fotos, editando fotos mías antiguas, random, basadas en el mood de cada día.
La única limitación que me voy a poner, va a ser el formato 1:1... A ver lo que sale xD

I´ll say it also in English :)
I´m gonna try a photography 365 project, but instead of taking photos, processing old random photos of mine...
Only one rule: the square format.
Let´s see what I got, which will be directly affected by the mood of the day...
