Anyone familiar with cyberpunk fiction knows that the genre is in love with the language and poetry of street slang, tech terms, and product names.
This video on the TheNeonArcade, runs through over 150 terms found in Mike Pondsmith’s cyberpunk universe, from the original Cyberpunk tabletop RPG up through the forthcoming Cyberpunk 2077 video game.
Many of these terms are specific to Pondsmith, but some are from Gibson’s work and elsewhere.
Besides the glossary of terms, one cool thing about this video is that its illustrated with lots of vintage images from the Cyberpunk game books from R. Talsorian Games and from Cyberpunk 2077.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
