We live in an era of cyberpunk "lite". All the dystopian components are in place, like behemoth corporate control of govt, mass surveillance, crappy automated services. But there's no space economy, no galactic federation. No exploration. Were stuck. And rather than make the new shit, the powers are instead looking at how to enslave people inside a virtual reality. Why build when you can breed more slaves? Why do anything IRL that can be done with a bit of processing power that fools your mind into believing, releasing its sweet dopamine, which costs essentially nothing, and can be altered or removed at the will of the programmer. And poof its gone, your whole world, all those tokens you earned and sprites you so carefully assembled. Stop. Don't fall for this shitty excuse for a technological world with its bad plot. Seek the truth outside. Its up to you.

Belatedly, someone is realising how generative AI with libraries of virus genetics can be used to make bioweapons: >The perils of open-source AI https://archive.is/jqBJH >During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, some well-meaning American officials floated a novel idea: why not put the details of the known zoonotic viral threats online to enable scientists around the world to predict what variants might emerge next? And, hopefully, find antidotes. Well, what could possibly go wrong? >So far, so inspiring. But when the US Agency for International Development (USAID) floated the Deep Vzn idea, some scientists spotted a problem: releasing virus details online could allow bad actors to replicate deadly diseases and make them worse. >After a chorus of complaints, USAID mothballed the open-source aspect of Deep Vzn. And then? >Two years later, this may seem a mere historical footnote. Not so. Some observers fear the return of “predictive research(opens a new window)”. Alarm was recently sounded in Congress about the risks.

>>263 Nah. Cyberpunk is a genre created in the late 1970s by smug Canadian Boomers who hated America and spent the 1980s gaslighting themselves into continuous state of abject miserable helpless terror, confabulating that Ronald Reagan was going to destroy the world. Cyberpunk is humorless, didactic, over-the-top grimderp parody of what they perceived as America's excessive lolbertarian tendencies. It explores dystopian worlds of pollution, anarchy, and strongarm rule by General Motors. The societies depicted are always utterly lawless. There are no lawyers. This is hilarious for several reasons, not least of which was that, for all that their mimeographed zines proclaimed that they were doing this in the name of Originality, Pohl and Kornbluth had already tread this ground to the point of grinding ruts into it thirty years before. Another, though, is that all around the world, the locals say that the stereotypical American introduces himself by saying "I'll sue you" rather than "hello." Cyberpunk tilts at a strawman bearing no resemblance to anything that ever existed outside of the minds of a handful of sanctimonious Canadian acidheads watching the war in Vietnam on television. No, what we have today isn't lawless superhyperultramegalocorporate anarchy enforced by General Electric's fleet of laser death satellites. We have anarchotyranny instead. In American cities that were the envy and marvel of the world a century ago, feces and discarded hypodermic needles are everywhere on the streets and mobs of VIbrantly Diverse Cultural Enrichers beat and rob and occasionally murder passerby, burn and loot by broad daylight, while Officer Friendly and the rest of the Badge & Gun Gang stand there and watch, with their thumbs stuck up their asses. "There's nothing we can do." "The DA won't charge them." "Orders is orders." "I don't like it, but little Susie needs braces." "I can't lose muh pension." Their orders are to wait for a huh-WITE! person to raise a hand in his own defense. Then, suddenly, the city government isn't so helpless or inept. Then, suddenly, it's "OY YAME THUH LAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR" and here come Officer Friendly and the boys, guns blazing and truncheons a-swinging, to put that horrible RAYCISS in his place and force him to confront his privilege, so that his face can be all over the Internet with breathlessly recounted tales that he is a "Nazi militia extremist radicalized on 4chan" as a smirking Boomer Struldbrugg judge presides over the show trial. Maybe today there won't be enough purple-haired SJW pederasts and Vibrant Diversities on the jury to find him guilty, but he'll still be unemployable for the rest of his life. The process is the punishment, and the process is very, very selectively applied. Cyberpunk is a guided tour of polluted Dickensian misery and lawlessness. But instead we got pic related. I think I'd rather live in Night City.

Giving them technology is a mistake since they're all just gangsters and immediately sell out any tech to the worst enemies of the Western world without any concern about how it will be abused and invite enemy nations to co-opt the country and corporations for personal profit while lying to everyone that it's for world peace and global cooperation; they're actually just selling Americans and the entire Western world out to enemy nations. All the Western universities are the same thing, anything you give them is immediately handed over to China, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc. for free because they're captured institutions that have been weaponized to steal Western tech. You're insane, absolutely insane, if you are giving technology to USA universities, companies, or government. They need to be shut down because they're just stealing everything from our country for China. These Federal agent spies for China and Israel put other spies in charge of the companies and institutions to steal all our technology and giving them anything is only hurting Americans further by giving rival countries all our tech advantages. The buck stops here. I will not give the USA, its corporations, or universities ANYTHING until they assassinate these spies and lock down technological secrets.And if you're giving tech to them, watch your back because I'm coming after you.

>>575 >'feminism" is not feminism Whatever (((You))) say anon.
>>575 Feminism is literally just the study of women/femininity. That's it. One can absolutely hate women and study female psychology to exploit them and they would still be a feminist. A tranny wants to be a woman so they learn how to act and behave like one. Presto, they are now a feminist. Stop imbuing technical terms with positive/negative judgements and feelings.

>>528 >Say, how many of these heinous crimes are commited by niggers and spics, for instance (in Burgerland as just one example), or by mudshits in Yurope. It's nowhere near as disparate really. And even if it were, the real question is: why are there such disparities to begin with? Mentally-functioning people have a huge body of research providing answers (men are socially expected to be more violent, wealth inequalities drive crime up on the poorer side, mainstream media overemphasize info that feeds male and race insecurities...) while rightoids have, in 8 years since we've been having these shit discussions, never been able to provide anything beyond "if there are differences, it has to be genes" with the occasional PCA diagram to pretend you know what you're talking about. There's a reason people like you never debate outside anonymous imageboards, and it's not fear that your local rabbi might backtrace your posts and kill you for parroting Alex Jones.
>>580 You’re acting like crime for women isn’t massively underreported. When women do things that would be considered crimes for men, it’s basically treated as a joke (being violent with someone, rape, petty theft). And if couples commit a crime, the blame normally falls entirely on the man with the women getting away scot free, like they are a child who was emotionally manipulated into something.
>>577 I too can argue by making up definitions for words that do not match anything that was ever in any dictionary.

What can i use for a private chat with some friends, nothing fancy at all, just text and images, with a reasonable percent of privacy?

matrix client and onionshare are good options too
>>617 What is the name of that comic? It looks good.
>>648 It is Cassiopeia Quinn: https://www.cassiopeiaquinn.com/ The artist is/was a regular in 4chan /co/, and has a very characteristic style.
Never trust anyone who offers you an "official" app/program/way of using it, the means of chatting on the internet, that survived for the longest (and will for decades to come) are those, that have just a simple protocol specification, that others can follow. IRC stood the test of time just because of this. If there was a central authority, an official client, proprietary server side or anything like that, it would have been abounded long ago. IRC is insecure though, you can try to secure it to some degree, but it's still some frankenstein solution, instead of something that has reasonable privacy out of the box like a self-hosted XMPP server with OTR/OMEMO.

This board seems like it has been abandoned, to be honest this whole site may end up as another abandoned corner/layer of the internet i will not be surprised if the owners have left this place, anyway if this is the case then it has been an honour, but i have also come with a question, can it be argued that East Asia is the most cyberpunk place at the moment? Of course it has influenced cyberpunk a lot that is certain, i do not expect many replies if any at all as activity has diminished, but hopefully someone will respond, if not then Godspeed, hopefully we will all meet again somewhere else one day, wherever you all are.

Looks like the corpos want to bring "copyright" into the 21st century "properly" Anonymous 07/22/2023 (Sat) 06:02:45 No.621 [Reply]
Crossposted from >>>/k/53949 An unholy union of Microshit, BBC, jewtel, Arm, Adobe have formed a group called "Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity" (C2PA) back in 2021 ( https://c2pa.org/ ) which is now testifying in front of congress on using metadata and secure algorithms to prevent AI generated shit from being "Fake news". They will use AI as the bogeyman to enslave us under the yolk of technology since it would be to dangerous to let man think freely... How it works: Basically it will store a hash of your picture generated from the file and your private key. No botnet system will accept "unsigned" files. Some key points: The "Harms modelling" PDF notes several of the risks in this and deliberately downplays a few. For example: >Political dissidents being tracked through C2PA manifest repositories, or 'bad actors' demanding manifest repositories to release sensitive information Impact scale and likelyhood "low" >Forced association (Requiring participation in the use of technology or surveillance to take part in society) De facto inclusion and participation obligation in marketplaces for creative content or journalistic content or for better algorithmic ranking on social media sites which disproportionately excludes global populations, marginalized communities and non-mainstream media who do not have access to relevant tools, or cannot consistently use tools because of privacy or other reasons Severity, scale and likelyhood: Low, frequency: High >Loss of freedom of movement or assembly to navigate the physical or virtual world with desired anonymity C2PA-enabled systems that utilize a real-name identity or other real-world profile provide a mechanism to connect movement in space to an individual via C2PA metadata Severity: Low. Scale: Low. Likelyhood: Low. frequency: High This one is straight up bullshit. There will be an "optional" signing feature using your government issued ID. They'll scrape the metadata like the good opportunists they are.
