When he’s offered the chance to regain this ability by a mysterious ninja who asks him to take on a hacking job, he leaps at the chance and begins a hazy, noir-inspired adventure. Another is to suggest a possible revision or advancement in scientific knowledge, and extrapolate the way the world would change. The fact that the hackers in William Gibson's Neuromancer are referred to as "cowboys" should have tipped Parrinder off to the fact that hackers "ride" the data stream, making them analogous to the old-time astroheroes who ride faster-than-light spaceships.

I tiden op til (og efter) årtusindskiftet blev tidsperspektivet for megen science fiction kortere og kortere, og mange forfattere som for eksempel Neal Stephenson i Cryptonomicon lod handlingen udspille sig i fortiden. Even his later books, like Cryptonomicon, hit many of the cyberpunk tropes without ever veering close enough to earn that genre — prompting some to dub it "cypherpunk." It is quite prestigious and particularly helpful when you’re starting out.

And yes, SUB > DUB for almost all values of DUB. Star Trek, for example, continued to imitate geopolitics as it launched a phenomenally boring new TV series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, in 1987 (it would end its run in 1994).

Some of these were people who had no intention of ever leaving the United States. It’s not really about an imagined future. The paradigm was William Gibson's highly successful novel Neuromancer, a near-future thriller about computer hackers, artificial intelligence and corporate warfare. Computers may liberate humanity from nature, but humanity is part of nature, and power over nature may mean power over humanity; a thinking machine may take over humanity's principal function and leave people, as in Jack Williamson's 1947 story, with nothing to do but to sit "With Folded Hands."
