If you're in the LA area or are willing to come here,  I'd love to invite you to a #cyberpunk event in May that is an immersive, cosplay event filled with drink, song, dance, technology and art in celebration of the cyberpunk age that is upon us.  This is an event for Cyberpunks by Cyberpunks. You can help make the event happen by buying a discounted ticket from our Indiegogo campaign. If you just want to donate because you cannot make it, we have some very cool perks for you too. We're looking forward to meeting new friends worldwide.

Interesting conclusion.  I don't thinlk the 2nd will ever be irrelevant.  Now see Lybia, Syria Tunisia.  Egypt and Iran offer interesting cases as well.  All of them very murky on the question of citizen vs professional military

In Egypt you saw a military largely sidelined and seeking political solution.  the military basically backed the strongest horse at the time, the Muslim Brotherhood then anti-morisi democratic factions.  The main threats come from opposing civilian factions trying to strong arm the other into submission while pursuing an "electoral strategy".

Irans military sat out their Arab (Persian) spring but had civilian paramilitaries the (basij) doing their dirty work.

Change the infill trait for the ability of jumping from one wired brain to another, and this is pretty sweet.

I think cyberpunk is making a comeback. This book is by an author I know - a noirish cyberpunk, set in a flooded Bristol. Worth a read.

My newest article for H+ Magazine, wherein I attempt to refute the "death-gives-meaning-to-life" platitude. First I argue that it is based upon false premises, and go on to show that even if we took those false premises as true, it is still wrong (for a different reason than the argument's premises are).

Hi all,

just discovered this Cyberpunk Flashfiction Kickstarter. Sounds interesting and it is only one dollar too.
