Gunhead, a member of ↑cyberpunk review, recently has done an ↑email-interview with ↑Bruce Sterling. The initial theme of the conversation is the close resemblance of contemporary life to cyberpunk fiction. A well-led interview, and quite interesting, imho.
The trend is toward a culture which isn’t even aware that it’s a ‘cyberculture.’ Once everything is ‘cyber,’ nothing is ‘cyber,’ and cyber gets commonplace and boring. (Bruce Sterling in Sterling & Gunhead 2011)
