Cyberpunk Zine Stash Unearthed! #cyberpunk

Going through some junk from my attic, I was excited to discover a back issue box marked “Cyberpunk Zines.” Eureka! These were zines that I subscribed to (or traded with my own zine, Going Gaga) in the 1990s. This is not my entire stash. I have at least one other box. Somewhere. And a collection of 2600 magazines and other hacker zines. And another box of industrial music zines. I have thousands of zines in my collection.

It was sad to happen upon Intertek, my friend Steve Steinberg’s cyberculture zine from the early 90s. Steve tragically died in a bike accident a few weeks ago. A huge loss. He and I exchanged zines and carried on a vigorous mail correspondence (on ancient papyrus) about cyberpunk, cyberculture, and postmodernism. He was a brilliant thinker and equally brilliant hacker. He was Frank Drake in the infamous Legion of Doom, for those familiar with hacker history. You can read about Steve/Frank in Bruce Sterling’s book, The Hacker Crackdowm.

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, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
