Corporations are increasingly becoming governments. They are taking policy stances and customers are transacting or not based on perspective on company values. Some corporations are even openly defying governments (Cf. Uber ) , or heavily pressuring governments to take policy position. People talk about distinct subculutures existing at SV companies (Like apple / google ). Facebook is currently talking about building and owning a town. Meanwhile, Federal Government is in chaos, lacking leaders, or even people in touch with basic reality. CA and liberal states are resisting. The federal government is going to make itself irrelevant and facebook is going to be the new government.

Is this possible?

I don't think the demand from the private market is gonna grow that much tbh, sexbots seem more of a hassle than anything.

Now, as for brothels, unless moralfags ruin everything as usual if people get into it besides the novelty aspect it could definitely become a thriving sector. For instance if there's enough demand I can picture some sexshops and brothels using them to get around prostitution laws in shitty countries, well at least until the state implement a designated cum cleaning licence and all that shit.

tbf if someone succeeds in changing the weird image sexdolls still have, in the long run regular hotels offering it as a service doesn't seem too big of a stretch.

Again fuck off with your peterson shit, nobody wants to marry because marriage fucking sucks now, not because that bitch you hoverhand wont stay a virgin until marriage

The real difference is that women were pressured into marriage by socioeconomic reasons that no longer exist, meanwhile it has become economically and socially pointless for men to marry since women initiate 80% of all divorces and always get the kids and their 50 split of men's stuff. Therefore for men getting marriage is like buying junk bonds.

My droog. this whole post is an elaborate disconnect with reality based upon a desire to hate women. Thats also why you don't get any women.

>Give it time bitch, give it time

Sex isn't decent in public. People can walk around with their wives, because wives are people not a sex toy. It doesn't even make sense to drag a sex toy around in public - your not having sex with it, why are you carrying it? By even thinking that you would want to do something like that you are implying that sex isn't enough, that there is some other aspect of a relationship missing that sex toy doesn't provide.

>What is fucking statistics

Can you point out any alleged statistics that you have? The average family in the us brings in under 40k. That doesn't fucking make any sense that women only accept men with high paying jobs. If so, why is the average income not measured in millions, and average family size not something like 30? Because your "reality" is obviously crap.

>Sure, not collapse, not at all

And wait for automation to kick in, that will really wreck things

Nigga you don't understand. That is a phenomena that has been going for hundreds of years across contients and cultures. This isn't a result of womens liberation. Its not even driven by that. Its driven by industrialization.

>The real difference is that women were pressured into marriage by socioeconomic reasons that no longer exist, meanwhile it has become economically and socially pointless for men to marry since women initiate 80% of all divorces and always get the kids and their 50 split of men's stuff.

So what is the actual problem? If what you say is true, which it almost certainly isn't, how the fuck is this evidence of hypergamy? Its just a critque of existing marriage law.

Where are all the people wearing custom wearable hardware and carrying around awesome custom laptops?

With the Pi Zero out, you could build a wearable computer for your cuff, complete, for about $25.

With cheap Chinese monocle displays, you can build a wearable, better than google glass, for under $100

Why are so few doing it?

The OLED being used comes in BW and Color,but it's the same 'family' of displays. I use them in my projects and consider them the same 'display'. I don't believe the resolution is different between them… unless I'm completely mistaken, but it looks exactly like the display I have on my workbench.

>BTW is there anything more powerful than an arduino but around the same size?

I'm using Pi Zero W for my builds. Either Composite or SPI displays. Mostly because I want to be able to use them for many things, and while the Arduino can do a lot, it's tough to make it do all those things without running out of program space.

Tall. White. Above average attractiveness. Early 20s. Dropped out of college. Small apartmemt in the city. Hard wood floors. Google fiber. Well paying job in advertising. Deep insecurities. Trouble connecting with people. Disillusioned with capitalism. Looking for a greater purpose in life. Lonely.

I feel like a cliche. I'm sure that a lot of you on here don't feel like you fit in with society either. Everything you've tried doesn't work but you have enough to be grateful for that you don't know how to appreciate. I don't know how to make it better either. I've seen therapists and none of them have helped. Tried online dating. Meet ups. Nothing

Sorry in advance for the blog post, but at least I'm trying to post something genuine.

Clayton bigsby that you? Why though? How many whites want to be black? Being white comes with its own series of sterotypes: Can't jump, can't dance, can't fight, week, feminine, nerdy, no soul, evil etc. I hear it works with women though - not that i'd know.

Who really cares about stereotypes? As a street shitter I have lots of stereotypes, like that I smell bad and eat curry. I don't. (I really try to distance myself from all those things) but the point is the stereotypes don't matter. what matters is the truth, that I am unironically genetically inferior in being short, weak, and ugly. I have to work harder to make up for that. If I didn't I'd have it easier. And maybe manage to get a gf. I'm autistic so probably not. I know it sounds fucked up but whatever.

I want to live in the future, and I hate how mundane my flat looks.

I don't want just a fuarrrking "battlestation" decorated with blue neon lights and with a pile of cig butts, doritos and random tech lying around. (Like my friend's)

Here's my vision:

I want a clean slick view, order in a dystopic future. I want to know that everything out there is soykaf. AI is uncanny as hell, botwars are ravaging half of the world, automation fuarrrked up everything about the market, privacy doesn't exist and drugs and sexbots are ruining the youth… but I'm above that.

I feel like a fish in the water in all this. I benefit from all of that, and my place looks nice, not like a japanese soykafhole, rather like the rich fuarrrks that abuse the world. That's my fantasy. I'm not rich, so I just want the A E S and then do it myself.

Can you rec me some inspiration?

/fa/ techware and /wg/ tech threads are the closest.

Right now, Deus Ex is my best reference, because it looks futuristic but somehow "realistic" (or at least not retarded, no trying to look like an anime).

Not really, they are anti-monopolies for example, problem is that just like communism always end in totalitarian mass murder there is the possibility libertarianism ends in megacorps ruling everything but then again we don't know because libertarianism has never been actually tried unlike communism, but then again the more libertarian countries out there are doing pretty well while even communist-ish countries like venezuela are a fucking trash fire

I done some dumb stuff, mostly pranks like making people think I deleted their data or changing passwords on wifi networks, mostly to send the message that they need to stop halfassing their security and learn the basics, but no actual harm done

Right now I want to do something bigger: I'm suspecting someone at my college staff is changing grades of students. I don't know if he does it for brouzouf from idiots who need to pass but can't be arsed to study, or if he does it out of spite, who knows

I've noticed that too. It seems like a lot of things start off as something a handful of rednecks are tinkering with, but it doesn't work well enough to depend on, or isn't very versitile. Then some university or r&d firm spends billions of dollars to make a version that works well and costs several million dollars each, made with the latest tech and manufacturing processes. Then, now that the finer points of the design are known, Cletus builds one out of worn out car parts, plywood and a metric fuck ton of zip ties. Then finially it gets handed off to urbanites for some polish. Simplifying the build process and swaping out some of the more improvised parts for more common off the shelf stuff.

Cletus's design is almost free, and might survive a nuclear blast, but you are going to need an end mill, a welder, and a belt tentioner from a 1987 jeep wranger.

The urbanite's design isn't nearly as cheap, or as durable, but you only need a hand drill, some jb weld and you can get 90% of the parts on amazon.

Hey /cyber/, I used to go on here a lot back in 2014-2016, and I met a couple people from that zeemaps post a long time ago and we'd really like to interact with some people from here, especially the OGs. Play some games, talk about cyber shit, do some dev projects if anyone's apt with that, etc.

I know Discord isn't a popular medium here but all my old Tox friends haven't been on in years.

Here it is, let's relive some old memories and do some fun cyber shit together.

>If people are being retarded it makes sense to degrade them for it. That's far more effective at changing behavior than politely requesting they stop using discord.

Is it? Is that … working out for you?

It seems to me that from beginning to end, OP has admitted that discord is basically all he knows and can get people on. So, instead of telling him to kill himself, you could offer an alternative?

Also, screaming 'LARP' at everyone who does anything IRL just serves to suggest that you yourself never do anything, and feel superior for it.

It like being proud of your ignorance, but instead you're proud of your ignorance AND inaction.

At least these kids are trying, instead of running around the internet screaming 'I don't know anything, and I don't do anything!'.

Hey chummers, i'd like to share some thoughts on cyberpunk, and you might find it useful(probably not, though.

I think cyberpunk needs to be defined in at least some consensual form, so here's that.

I dont't think that cyberpunk is about aesthetic, as there are certain styles that already represent it, even though some syberpunk fiction might be extremely different from another, atleast visually, yet still remain cuberpunk.Therefore, cuberpunk must be some kind of view of life, world and this other stuff, which is usually called philosophy.So, what then forms cyberpunk views? Well, the word "cyberpunk" consists of words "cyber" and "punk"(who'd have thought).

I'll try to explain these 2 views that form cyberpunk, starting with "punk" part. Punks represent the movement of independence, nonconformism, and other stuff i may not fully understand, as the only punk things i've seen were some drunk guys sleeping after drinking alcohol, in a very extensive amount. I therefore would disagree with the punkish point of demonstrating nonconformism, challenging "society", and all this actions, as dependent on other people and as a consequence of the movement becoming subculture the same way, as, for example, the "programming" or "IT" sphere of interest created h@xx0rs. Instead, i'd define "punk" part as nonacceptance of authority, submission and forceful coercion, there is another reason destructive provocation is not very suitable, and i'll explain later.

So, now here is the "cyber" part. I think cyber-ish idea does not stop on some certain technological level, and is extensive to any technology and knowledge, and i then define cyber as using extensive knowledge of the world to your advantage, and, therefore, while being able to mill yourself a fullmetal butt plug on a lathe may not sound very cyberpunk, to the extent of our technological developement of today, it counts. Cyber also does not end on the tech only, as being able to cure yourself, blend in the crowd, survive in the woods, or get a better job still comes under the "knowledge of the world". So, after all this wall of text, what is cyberpunk? It is an idea of independence, self sufficience, unwillingness to conform, of strong self, and action towards your goals and principles. As it is, you can even be a head of a megacorporation(imagine a coder working for google), Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

This guy is talking about the average drug dealer delivering coke by drone

Do you not understand there is more than 1 drug deal occuring? The skies are not littered with drones delivering anything. Therefore, if drugs are being exchange, its not by drone on average.

No, he said the average drug dealer has access to these things.

You are taking everything everyone says and adding your own bullshit.

Average drug dealers have access to drones. They do. That's a fact.

Average drug dealers have access to encryption. They do. That's a fact!

Some drug dealers are using those technologies. That is a FACT.

You are throwing your hands up and acting like an asshole becausee NO ONE YOU KNOW PERSONALLY is doing these things, while SEVERAL people make posts telling you that you are an asshole, these things DO HAPPEN.

Just shut the fuck up. No one else thinks these things, as reported in the news for half a decade, is nearly as crazy as you do.

In the case of prisons, it's such a common problem they have to have guards specifically on the lookout for them!

>if drugs are being exchange, its not by drone on average.

NO ONE SAID THE AVERAGE DRUG DEAL IS DONE BY DRONES BUT YOU!

As for the whole thing about making it sound impossible that a drug dealer would set up a PRIVATE CHAT, 5 fucking years AFTER Silkroad … JFC man … just stop.

Thoughts on Esperanto? Any speakers? Where do you shazbots hang out?

I always associated it as being /cyber/ given the international nature while being particularly well-facilitated by the modern age.

If i get to be Cyber gate keeper then I say no. It was in the 80s , when japan was the future, and high tech.

English - Virtually everything official is translated into english. All science, technology and business you are intended to read is in english.

Chinese - The future. Currently Enthusiast forums that have knowledge not available in English for technology. We should be learning it.

Russian - Significant amount of physic and information technology knowledge available, but more importantly institutions for cybercrime.

By those criteria you could also include spanish, arabic, french, german and tons of other languages.

>>49659

Why? Spanish is more spoken than english, but the vast majority majority of literature including the scientific literature is avialable in english. Many students in countries where english is not spoken recieve lectures in english, read textbooks in english and publish in english. The widely spoken nature of spanish, arabic isn't at play, its the frequency of scientific and technological literature published and translated into.

French is historically the language of mathematics, german the language of physics, but I am still banking on a chinese future and an english present.

Moreover, in line with this, John Quijada (Ithkuil's creator) has stated he does not believe a speaker would think necessarily any faster, because even though Ithkuil is terse, a single word requires a lot more thought before it can be spoken than it would in a natural language.[38]
