Such works are most often concerned with the impact of these innovations—or of change in general—on humanity. But all kinds of people live on the metaphorical street, including suburban teens, ad executives, civil libertarians, software engineers, and movie producers. Though Gibson’s work arguably helped shape the modern internet, his vision of the world was always a wired one, tied to an analog past, even as it looked forward to a digital future.

And much lesser famous examples is Generator Rex and Transcendence. [8] As new writers and artists began to experiment with cyberpunk ideas, new varieties of fiction emerged, sometimes addressing the criticisms leveled at the original cyberpunk stories. Cyberpunk plots often center on a conflict among hackers, artificial intelligences, and mega corporations. Those with the right skills and the right attitude dug in and did what they could to clear out the dead, to protect their lives and rapidly dwindling resources, to even get major infrastructure systems back up and running.
