>What may sound like a dystopian vision of the future is already happening in China. And it’s making and breaking lives.

>The Communist Party calls it “social credit” and says it will be fully operational by 2020.

>Within years, an official Party outline claims, it will “allow the trustworthy to roam freely under heaven while making it hard for the discredited to take a single step."

>Social credit is like a personal scorecard for each of China’s 1.4 billion citizens.

>In one pilot program already in place, each citizen has been assigned a score out of 800. In other programs it’s 900.

>Those, like Dandan, with top “citizen scores” get VIP treatment at hotels and airports, cheap loans and a fast track to the best universities and jobs.

>Those at the bottom can be locked out of society and derezzed from travel, or barred from getting credit or government jobs.

What are some tactics etc to deal with such a state? Assuming you get a low ranking, how would you operate?

>>Those, like Dandan, with top “citizen scores” get VIP treatment at hotels and airports, cheap loans and a fast track to the best universities and jobs.

There is a financial incentive for the system to be ignored. Imagine being forced to higher some inferior working who has an awesome 'social credit score'. How little negativity he spread about the government probably has little do with his effectiveness at writing android apps, etc. And may even be inversely correlated if intelligent people tend to be the dissidents. Who will pay for VIP hotel treatment ? Government ? Similiar problem with universities. They probably want to accept either top tier talent or wealthy students, and a social credit score can inhibit that.

Of course, the vast majority of that 1 Billion is fucked. It doesn't matter is your a 3x phone assembler when the company has 500 employees, and political pressure is high. Bottom of society is fucked.

Won't work consistently. You can't "fix exposure" after the photo is taken. There is information you lose which just isn't there.

Images are probably doctored up for capitalist advertising's sake, but here are two examples. One working, one not doable because #000 black pixels are all going to be the same #000 black no matter what. Enough of that shit and the glare alone will be enough to block out your face, even with auto-exposure turned off.

>someone uses face detection that doesn't use value gradient directions and you get arrested for criminal mischief

I smell polyp larping in this thread. You have to go back. You also have to learn facial recognition and facial detection are different things, and you don't necessarily have to bypass facial detection to bypass facial recognition.

How about we create our own SCP Foundation for cyberpunk short stories or mysterious objects appearing in various places due to a spacetime leak in a dimension which looks like William Gibson's 80s cyberpunk world and also like those cyberpunk anime from the 80s and 90s?

Yes, that would be great. A city where time leaks are occurring and the government is trying the hardest to keep it a secret while analyzing objects fallen from different dimensions as thoroughly as possible. Please note everyone, I chose the multiverse route so that you all can have as much creative freedom as possible.


Me too


Yes, like the internet technologies from Serial Experiments Lain


Love it. You got the talent. Just more cyberpunky and less supernatury.


A city where there are space leaks from different dimensions is perfect for creative freedom. You make your dimensions however you want (under the criteria of cyberpunk genre afcourse) .



Yeah, I suppose I should find a way to link it in with more cyberpunk themes. Thanks for the feedback



You know, I am still learning programming. Currently learning basic Django but still don't know any server side/backend/database programming. But if there is some step by step guide for noobs on how to create your own wiki or any type of website which can facilitate this project of ours. Or someone here can teach me.



There's wikidot, which is what SCP and I believe RPC uses. Although in order to get free hosting with wikidot you have to apply. Wikia is also an option, as it does free hosting.



i think wikidot does free hosting actually. Although it has some limitations it could be worthwhile to do that temporarily and maybe we can upgrade to a paid version if this gets bigger.

>If you had call wanting it would knock you off line.

This only happened to brainlets. Anyone who understood how to use the phone prefixed their number with *70 to disable call waiting. And only casuals used their main line for data. If you where halfway serious you had a dedicated modem line without "advanced calling features" like call waiting. That shit cost extra and was pointless on a modem line.

I highly recommend you watch "BBS The Documentary."

I'd also suggest going on YouTube and looking up old episodes of a TV show called "The Computer Chronicles" if you want a feel for what computing and networking was like from the late 70s through the early 2000s.

Back in the 80's there was a little known aussie hacker by the name of Mendax. We know him as Julian Assange today.

What does /cyber/ think of him? His been in the game and a lot deeper than most of people. His rap sheet is impressive and he's contributed to open source in his more legit programmer days.

Now he seems like a fallen man child, unable to take care of his cat. Though that's the media we're getting. I'm afraid for him, he has every right to be paranoid considering the shit he's caused for the authority.

But doesn't that in a weird way make him a perfect caricature of all things cyberpunk? A hacker who went to far, like Icarus flying to close to the sun?


I think wikileaks were really important and could have evolved into something great if not the (((media))) and Dumbsheit Berg or what's his name had sabotaged it.

Though Mendax certainly is a man child. There were some really funny stuff in the police report concerning that swedish woman he "raped". I remember something about him not showering and always smelling like shit or something and in general behaving like a pig.


What is right and what is wrong ?

Julian is already in a jail not a physical jail but basically a jail.

It’s odd how everyone likes the idea but is in fear to say it publicly.

Totalitarianism Governments parties don’t matter.

The dystopian future is here and who does the world have to blame ?

No one. But the leaders

A scapegoat for the problems is what JA is now.

Each government of the world is totalitarian.

Media is propaganda

Police are in forcing fear to the public, ordered to arrest everyone because their told everyone is a criminal.

Corporations are structured by the government funded by the government

Government credit scores gives the people rights, privilege and a sense of belonging to the totalitarian government ideology.

Government watching everything you do privately and publicly.

What is right and what is wrong the global governments will not tell the people

Censorship,blackout of media, no investigation.

Does this sound familiar ?

Like the terror Group ISIS

No it’s not ISIS it your governments using the same playbook as terrorist.

Like Joan of Arch

In my opinion I think the United States of America has never recovered from The collapse in the 30s and looks for scapegoats.

At this time I think JA is a scapegoat

We need more organizations like WikiLeaks out there. Project Veritas recently started a new platform for leaks. Julian Assange definitely is teetering on the fallen hero trope but I can't really blame him with all the political/legal bullshit he's dealing with on multiple sides. Wikileaks has exposed so much. That's my opinion.

I've recently come across another opinion: He is controlled opposition. He's a disinfo agent set out to distract the public with juicy details of some public figures while ignoring others. Chiefly Israel (and Russia, I think?) It's in interesting premise and worth some digging into, imo. Although it's probably bunk. You never know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mendax I don't think would be "willingly" a tool of anyone and especially (((them))).

It just doesn't fit his mentality, but I think now or recently he is highly manipulatable.

I know a lot of sheep that think their radicals felt betrayed cause he leaked that DNC email shit. But honestly what folks forget is the Neo-liberal world globalist are the actual enemies. They're the ones supporting the global banks, they're they ones that push the surveillance every where.

Some say he's a Russian tool, but he believes trying to weaken the current Neo-Liberal Global Order is more important.

It's rather unfortunate that most people are completely devoid of the skills needed to implement encryption on their own.



Some part of me believes the government is doing this at least somewhat for the right reasons; catching low hanging fruit like Arabs. It'll meet their needs in that case.

For anyone who rolls their own builds, or holds their own keys, they won't have much luck.



Even if it did target Arabs it will eventually be used against all groups that are real or imagined threats to the system ala the Patriot Act.



>it will eventually be used against all groups

That's part of the point though, it can't be.

The government likely doesn't understand how encryption works, most platforms don't hold the private keys, and anyone worth their salt doesn't rely on modern messaging platforms like Facebook/WhatsApp.

PGP for e-mails, FiSHLiM for IRC, OTR for Pidgin.

Hey, /cyber/.

I'm doing something that uses some board-tans, and it got me thinking on what's the status of board-tans and mascots overall on 8ch. Over the next few days I'll be asking around other boards, to possibly catalogue them somewhere eventually- do you guys have one, a board-tan, a mascot?

Over a year after the board's creation, was the idea ever approached, did you reach some conclusion, do you want one, not want one? What's your shpiel, basically?

Where does that video come from? I know it's probably from China, but anything more specific? What system is it?



Build both a normal profile for myself in the system and on the other end build up skills and knowledge to help me avoid it in other ways.

There is no escape from the surveillance state, like a straight jacket the more you struggle the tighter it'll bare down onto you.

Instead give them the illusion of being a "good boy". Play vidya on my windows machine, post pictures on my social media, have a normal email I do shit with. Post on reddit about my hobbies, etc, etc. So my profile looks like a "normal" citizen.

While my other machines are locked down tightly audited *nixs, use jump hosts or wifi networks not my own to keep up my dual life. Multiple networks and multiple cell phones.


>What are you doing to prepare for the inevitable, chummers? Prepared for your SIN?

I'm working to hide myself from as much as I can from nation states and corporations alike by working on minimizing my connection to the clear-net. I don't have social media or connect to any normie sites that require them to know who I really am (besides shopping shit).

I've been also working on VPNing everything, and keeping it separated/segmented from each other. For example, I got a VPN for ebay/amazon and other online purchase, one for other clear-net browsing (reddit/4ch etc) and others for various things on the clear-net. I try to minimize my time on the clearnet though and make as much use of Tor as I can, and I have a dedicated VPN just to connect to Tor as well. I'm hoping to one day fully just stay in darket networks like Tor/i2p/freenet full time, with no need to access the clearnet. My own infrastructure is currently all behind (mumble servers, IRC servers, gitlab, nextcloud VPNs and I'm begining to migrate them to Tor for further anonymity.

All my personal computers do not have intel ME and are coreboot/librebooted.

No cyberpunk clubs around here. If I could ever save up the brouzouf I'd like to start one, but considering how fucking dull this city is I'd be lucky if it lasted a year. Most subculture clubs here last for about 8 months unless they also cater to a lot of normie shit. If I had to deal with fucking gangsta rap and generic fucking nu metal most of the operating time I'd shoot myself.

Even the few places that lasted more than several years have been cutting ties with a lot of the local subcultures and just going to shit.

A full cyber look never goes well in public unless you are a talented manufacturer of all the components necessary to pull it off or have bitcoin to burn a plenty.

Best case scenario for public interaction if you don't want to look like someone heading to a nearby con is people having to get close to you to notice you're decked out with cyber gear, in which case they'd probably note the unique style yet discreet nature of it and breathe easy they weren't visually assaulted by a man wearing an HTC Vive and more loose wires than a battle-damaged terminator in some grungy New York subway for the fifth time that day.

At best, headgear-wise, we're looking at hardware not dissimilar to a pair of sunglasses with the ability to block out most natural light (would need radiant light to avoid eye strain), replacing it with a feed of the outside via cameras mounted on the front. This serves the dual purpose of eliminating outside interferences and the need for regular glasses. Headphones (if included) could have bone conducting ability as well as regular audio and manual noise cancellation for complete immersion when is time appropriate. A pointing stick (aka laptop nipple) can be mounted on the right side for cursor movement and buttons beside it can link to software actions.

The whole thing would basically be a simple OS with an on-screen keyboard, perfect for watching movies, YouTube, or browsing the internet (aka lurking through imageboards, breathing easy you don't have to hide the giant porn banner from the little old lady sitting next to you anymore). Possible facial recognition, AR/VR functionality, and a slew of other software gimmicks could warrant its existence as a non-phone tech item.


With the exception of the first pic, those products are literal trash. The fitbit-looking thing can never function due to how light projection works and the laser keyboard is aids to use for anything except demonstration purposes.

No reason for them to exist either, they're inferior versions of both products they're trying to improve upon (as is the case for most 2-in-1 products).

I share this because In the early 2000's rantmedia was doing internet content creation before the normies stormed the web.

Tales of the afternow had a weird way of being somewhat accurate and gave the listener an eyes on the ground view of what was in our future. It was formative to introducing me to the ideas and concepts of cyberpunk. It lead me on a great journey to reading PKD and Gibson and convincing my friends to play Shadowrun.

So Anon, what introduced you to Cyberpunk?
