Great article on the cyberpunk genre, which emerged as a critique of technological development under neoliberal capitalism, but has now been reduced to an aesthetic enjoyable even by the very people making the dystopia come true: Cyberpunk Needs a Reboot.

@toddgrotenhuis For sure! I'm no expert on solarpunk, but from what I know it comes across as much more radical than modern cyberpunk.
