The third installment in the Cyberpunk documentary is now available on YouTube. This over two-hour video takes a deep dive into the cyberpunk novels, movies, music, and other media of the 1990s and also looks at how cyberpunk became cyberculture and then became part of mainstream media and culture.
There’s a lot of good material in here, but I think it’s unfortunate that Mondo 2000, bOING bOING, (my own) Beyond Cyberpunk!, The Well, MindVox, and other important cybercultural influencers of the decade are barely mentioned.
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.
