Sterling claims that the technology of cyberpunk is "pervasive, utterly intimate....under our skin; often, inside our minds" (Sterling xiii). Just like all teenagers, Mike feels oppressed by the authority of his parents, who have to force him to go to school. They are surging into culture at large; they are invasive; they are everywhere. List of the best cyberpunk anime, voted on by Ranker's anime community. A cyberprep world assumes that all the technological advancements of cyberpunk speculation have taken place but life is utopian rather than gritty and dangerous. [39] Since society is largely leisure-driven, uploading is more of an art form or a medium of entertainment[ citation needed ] while advanced body modifications are used for sports, pleasure and self-improvement.

Images, electronic continents, drift past the retina, moving towards pure surface. Honest "technological literacy" in the 50's was exhilarating but disquieting - but in the high-tech 80's, "technological literacy" meant outright ecstasy and dread. Kumiko, the "Yak" daughter who represents a miniature extension of a vast and inscrutable corporate collective, functions as a temporary bridge between the world at large—the Sprawl desperados, matrix hackers, data pirates, and console cowboys, the self-consciously militant individualists—and the Yakuza, a threatening and powerful familial structure which, in fact, constitutes a kind of monolithic Japanese corporate entity.

Utopiales Festival International Science Fiction Festival, Nantes, France, November 4-7, 2004, marked the beginning of the Jules Verne death Centennial year's celebrations. A very small number of titles are more than one credit. Though in some cases the oeuvre modeled itself on the notoriously sexist noir genre—so Philip Marlowe-like knight-errantry manifested itself all too easily in this milieu—other cyberpunk works ignore such conventions: Sterling’s Islands in the Net, for example, with a thirty-two-year old mother of a newborn as its protagonist.

Activities that occur throughout the convention are not part of the program; these commonly include a dealer's room, art show, and hospitality lounge (or "con suites").

Simply put, Post-Cyberpunk basically reins in Cyberpunk's excess and tries to give us a more open vision of the future.

After Mirrorshades, we are no longer necessarily talking about the group of writers called Cyberpunks, but rather cyberpunk, the literary genre that was soon to become a cultural phenomenon.
