Would Singapore count as an IRL cyberpunk setting? I'm assuming everyone here is familiar with William Gibson's "Disneyland with the Death Penalty" article.

What other actual locations would count as cyberpunk?
>What other actual locations would count as cyberpunk
South Korea comes to mind.
Hong Kong
Japan, Taiwan, some major cities in the west.
Cincinnati, Ohio.
I would have said Tokio in first place
>>23 >What other actual locations would count as cyberpunk? The entire world as it is now counts as cyberpunk in my eyes. It's basically Deus Ex right now.
>>102 Just too bad there's no actual NSF
>>115 >NSF By the time we have the NSF, it'll be too late and we'll be in the Invisible War.
>>102 This, I've been saying for a while that we live in the cyberpunk era, but I think 2020 is the point where denying it is simply delusional.
>>102 >>137 This isn't new. People have been saying that for at least ten years. >>115 The IRL ruling class is a lot smarter than Bob Page. If any NSF analogue were to show up, it would probably be a honeypot.
>>137 Do you think the 2020s will mark as a transition period towards a fully cyberpunk world?
>>144 We're already living in a fully cyberpunk world. We simply are lacking the aesthetics, that's all.
