The Cyberpunk Manifesto, written by Bruce Bethke, is a document describing the cyberpunk genre of science fiction. It extends the ideas of author William Gibson’s Neuromancer to encompass hacker culture and its offshoots.
The Cyberpunk Manifesto was written in 1988 and published in 1990.
Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction in a futuristic setting that tends to focus on society as “high tech low life”. The typical protagonist may be a disaffected anti-hero, usually either a cyborg or heavily augmented human, who usually has an allegiance to “street” or mercenary values. (pagina de referencia)
The look of cyberpunk is easily recognized: The near future, a dark grimey city with lots of chrome, neon, and mirrorshades. It’s a style of art that has been made popular by movies like Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, The Matrix, and Akira.
The average person will find the image to the left to be very cyberpunk-ish. It features many common cyberpunk themes such as mirrored sunglasses, neon signs and red light districts (red light districts are common in cyberpunk). The picture is also very dark with lots of shadows adding to the cyberpunk feel of the picture.
A lot of cyberpunk art is based on real life. For example this picture was taken at an old power plant in Edison New Jersey called Conedison Power Plant. This picture shows a large abandoned building with graffiti all over it. Other examples include pictures taken at scrap yards or near factories where there is plenty of scrap metal lying around. Sometimes people just set up their own photo studio and take pictures from there though.
Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction. The characteristic of a subgenre is that it follows certain rules and guidelines that make it different from the main genre. The main genre is science fiction which takes place in the future or sometimes in an alternative present. To be cyberpunk you take the basic ideas of sci-fi and add to them elements of technology, cultures, cyberspace, hacking and other things to make your story more interesting.
Coining of the term “Cyberpunk” can be attributed to Bruce Bethke who wrote a short story called “Cyberpunk” in 1983. The word was first used by Gardner Dozois on 1985 and he defined it as “short, sharp shock stories about low life in high technology.”
You’re probably wondering if you can write a cyberpunk story yourself? Can you do it? Of course you can! You just need to follow some simple steps and everything will be fine. Here are some basic steps:
First things first. You should know what the word “Cybernetics” means. It refers to computers and robots. It also refers to systems that are self-regulating like the human body where there has been some kind of feedback mechanism built in (like feedback mechanisms in an
Cyberpunk is a subgenre of science fiction that focuses on the impact of high technology, including artificial intelligence and cybernetics, on human society. The word cyberpunk was first used in a short story by Bruce Bethke as the title to his short story collection published in 1983.
The term “cyberpunk” is often applied to several other science fiction works written in the 1980s and 1990s as well, such as Neuromancer by William Gibson , Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson and The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson.
Cyberpunk stories often center around characters who use computers and cybernetic enhancements that link their bodies with machines in some way. This usually involves human prostheses or implants, but can also feature virtual reality devices or brain computer interfaces. Such stories tend to focus on society’s outcasts, especially hackers, Netrunners (a term coined by Gibson), and people who are technologically inclined.
The genre’s vision of a troubled future is often called the antithesis of the generally utopian visions of the future popular in the 1940s and 1950s.
“Cyberpunk” is a science fiction subgenre that emerged in the early 1980s, revolving around the tech-savvy lone wolf who uses his superior intellect and abilities to fight crime in a dark dystopian future.
The term cyberpunk is a portmanteau of cybernetics (a term coined by Norbert Wiener) and punk (meaning “a rude, contemptuous, or disreputable person”).
The name is fitting as cyberpunk literature often focuses on a character that is “upgrading” himself with computer hardware or biotechnology.
The genre has influenced many other genres such as: Steampunk, Biopunk, Clockpunk, etc. Cyberpunk can be described as any genre that focuses on the effects of human technology and progress on society and individuals. Themes of social breakdown, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and blurred lines between objective and subjective are common in works considered to be part of the cyberpunk genre.
