The future has imploded into the present.
With no nuclear war, a new battlefield is on people's minds and souls.
Mega-corporations are the new governments;
Computer-generated info domains are the new frontiers.
And though there is better living through science and chemistry,
We are all becoming cyborgs.
The computer is the new cool tool.
And though they say all information should be free,
It is not.
Information is power and currency in the virtual world we inhabit,
So mistrust authority.
Cyberpunks are the true rebels;
Cyberculture is coming in under the radar of ordinary society...
An unholy alliance of the tech world and the world of organized dissent.
Welcome to the Cyber Corporation...
...Cyberpunks.

(From "Is there a Cyberpunk movement?" by Gareth Branwyn, 1992)
