I swear at one time I had an edit that kept the beat the whole way through. DS: If we believe, as I believe, that any piece of writing is determined by its implied reader—modern literary theory maintains there is an ideal reader inscribed between the lines, an ideal addressee—it's not difficult to find the ideal reader of cyberpunk: computer hackers, media mixers, technicians of TV and radio stations, mobile young professionals, free-lancers, jet-setters who don't care whether they work in Tokyo, London, D�sseldorf, or Los Angeles—they just want to have their machines, they want to be part of a global network.

Science-fiction television shows of the 1970s and 1980s include Battlestar Galactica (1978-1980) and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979-1981), both set in outer space. A crackteam of futurists, engineers and writers has come together to inspire the next wave of giant leaps of innovation, countering the dark visions of the future portrayed by a lot of contemporary science fiction "The future is a verb, not a noun," says Liam Young, referring to the idea that we create the future rather than passively receive it. "And science fiction is an extraordinary storytelling medium that can help the audience realise that we are active agents in shaping our own futures rather than the victims of the default dystopias that often seem to be the modus operandi of future thinking."

William Gibson is an extremely popular and controversial science fiction writer who is known as the father of the modern “Cyber Punk” novel. At twenty-two, he'd been a cowboy a rustler, one of the best in the Sprawl. People love to debate what is “real” science fiction. The web as such didn't exist either, and even functions like email and newsgroups depended on a patchwork of interconnected systems with limited standardization.
