getting warmer… try digging a little…
Don't mind me, just documenting my further descent into madness.
We fell for it, guys. That cyberpunk future where corporations rule over all in a world of limitless technology, connecting billions across the globe, to the extent that we now have a functioning robot on Mars that can deliver hot laser death to the first communist pig that sets foot before pure American bootheels? It’s real. With our 4G tablets, interplanetary murder devices, and videogames being widely accepted as an artform, this is the future we dreamed of.
Sadly, we’ve paid a great price. “Nerd culture” has become the scourge of the earth, rampant consumerism, referential humor, and corporate worship has become the norm. Technological fetishism of consumer electronics is rising at an unhealthy precedent, so much that an internet weirdo can present some Photoshop mockups and a bunch of unsubstantiated claims of their production ability, and get millions of dollars just by promising to build a highly underpowered videogame console using mobile hardware.
