For each assignment each student is also expected to respond to one or more of the points raised by another student, saying more than "I agree" or "I disagree." Give me the mainland for a nerve job any day. Those who ignore the past, in other words, can have no conception of the future. Over the past few seasons designers have been working in a bit of Cyberpunk to their designs. William Gibson's Neuromancer, whose influence dominated the early cyberpunk movement, was also set in Chiba, one of Japan's largest industrial areas, although at the time of writing the novel Gibson did not know the location of Chiba and had no idea how perfectly it fit his vision in some ways.

John Shirley is another writer usually grouped with foundational cyberpunk authors like Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Rucker, and Shiner. If someone were to ask what characteristic lies at the core of science fiction, I believe that many fans would still say it is the “grand narrative” or “grand vision.” For science fiction to be science fiction, some kind of vision must be proposed, even if it is a vision of science’s failure or of a dark, foreboding future. The first two are too early to be cyberpunk but influenced it.

A world without cords may be tidier or more convenient, but it’s also one in which we no longer direct the flow of energy, even in passing. But the simplest and most radical thing that Ridley Scott did in Blade Runner was to put urban archaeology in every frame. Heinlein, who are considered as the "heart" of the genre, to more contemporary writers such as Jack Womack and J. When Gibson, Stepenson and others announced its "death" it wasn't so much a pronouncement of a decision as it was a reaction to all the fans that were asking "when do we get more...?" - the problem was that we passed technologically beyond most of the gates that the speculation hinged itself upon - science fiction became reality (well with the exception of the singularity and some of the extreme ideas - but I predict those to be not too far out timewise).

Gibson supports the view by noting that one of the inspirations for Neuromancer was the video arcades along Vancouver's Granville Street. The least realistic books about the 21st or later centuries are those which assume that no more such changes in our knowledge will occur! (Well, perhaps that's the second least realistic category; the ones that really get my goat are the ones that assume that all the things we want to become possible (and only those things) will become so -- FTL travel, anti-gravity, etc. -- and nothing will become impossible.) So I won't rule something out as hard ScF because we presently believe it to be impossible; rather, I see degrees of plausibility based on the extent to which accepted theories would have to be re-written.

Much of the game's mechanics revolve around boosting your character's abilities by installing a wide array of cybernetic implants and augmentations. General-interest conventions cover all aspects of science fiction, while others focus on a particular interest like media fandom, filking, etc. How are the dwarfs' quarters in the palace of the Duke of Mantua like the Villa Straylight for the Tessier-Ashpools?
