The Big LeakAs we all know, everything we do on the internet is collected by various organizations and used to create detailed profiles on individuals and their interests, fetishes, beliefs, etc. Let's imagine a hypothetical scenario where all these detailed profiles on people leak - how would the world change? How many governments would fall apart as officials are exposed? How many people would be forced to hide in obscurity as they're found to hold beliefs or do things that society does not approve of? Would society learn to forgive past digital transgressions?
Opennic and Cyberpunk DNSWhat happend to opennic ? It was a /g/ concieved project. Its still functional. There are dnscrypt public servers. There is even a .cyb tld. Why are there no .cyb sites? Go make some blogs or something. Someone point arisuchan.cyb here.

cyber PUNK?Anyone notice how theres alot of talk of cyber, but not alot about punk on here?
Security on Mobile DevicesThere's a lot you can install on computers to keep yourself safe against tracking/stay anonymous/keep privacy, but what about on phones/other mobile devices? Applications protecting against tracking and whatnot are much more limited.
Earning CoinsWhat are some /cyb/ ways of making money/earning a living? Working at Shlomo's zaibatsu isn't very enticing. At the moment I'm scraping by making websites for people. I think the most cyberpunk way of making money is probably selling drugs online but prison doesn't seem that good so I haven't delved into it. So how are we earning our shekels arisu?
BSD for beginnersI am a Windows person, because I have to do heavily Windows oriented programming. I know linux-fu, but I don't like the distro environment where there is so much bullsoykaf going on. I want a security & privacy oriented, no-bullsoykaf, stable approach. That's why I have "Switch to OpenBSD" on my to-do list. Like I said I know linux-fu (gnu coreutils, basic configuration) but I don't know detailed configuration, I still need to look up stuff time to time.
Creating/hosting an Email ServerHello,

Israel, a future cyberpunk state?Israel population is expected to double by 2050 to 16 million people and the country will be seriously overcrowded. More than 100 skyscrapers were built in the last 10 years and over 200 others are under construction. The country is the second most militarised country after Singapore. Israel is very highly educated but is faced with extreme inequalities and is one of the most diverse in the world (less than half speak Hebrew as their mother tongue, the country has the highest percentage of its population fluent in three or more languages). It's economy is based on high tech (cybersecurity, biomedical engineering, aerospace engineering, solar power…), military exports, and is controlled by a few megacorps with cyberpunk names like TEVA Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., ELBIT Systems Ltd., DELEK Group Ltd., ORMAT Technologies Inc., OPKO Health Inc., etc. The culture is very punk: no respect for authority even in the army and workplace, a "no future" attitude… The economy is expected to grow until the GDP per capita is the same as in the United State, but with vastly greater inequalities. The country faces very serious security challenges, including from Hezbollah, Hamas, Syria, and Iran. Finally, the general aesthetics is pretty cyberpunk. The pic is an 18-year-old Christian girl, military police officer in the Israel Defense Forces.

Sun Ultra II | retro workstationsJust got a hold of an old Sun Ultra II creator 3D workstation, with the keyboard and mouse and an extra 13w3 video card with all of the cables. Does alice know what sort of display I should get for this? It looks like there's a few Sun 13w3 monitors on ebay going for ~$300. I could use a 13w3 -> vga adapter but I kind of want a period correct monitor or at least on that matches.
File System Integrity CheckingI'm looking at deploying a server soon; I'm going to monitor the file system for any changes.
TiredMaybe we've had this thread a million times and I'm sorry if so, but I promise I'm not trying to slide. I kind of came to this epiphany that all this anonymity and security I've spent the past half decade absorbed into is a colossal waste of time. I've never been able to convince people to use free software or encrypted communications, thus everything I work for for my own privacy is completely ruined by them. Not to mention that if anyone wanted to monitor me, they could probably get through whatever defenses I put up, Google tracks your location by using cellphone towers. I'm not perfect myself; I can't be like Stallman.
First steps to anonymity and securityHello Lain,
Writing in patternsWhen we write we produce trackable patterns. These patterns can be used to track individuals across platforms, and across identities.
What is Cyberpunk?Cyberpunk is where science and technology meets society
Private browserWhat's the best browser that respects privacy? I feel like every browser has glaring issues. Chrome is a botnet, Firefox lags on my laptop with the quantum update and waterfox has terrible performance. I've been using Iridium which is a modified version of Chrome for privacy, but there haven't been any updates so I think the project is dead like ungoogled chromium, which is more or less the same thing.

You cannot google things if google is unreachable. We should think about this before it happens.

Synthetical ScienceSynthetical Science is one of the first networks of network researchers that emerged in 2010. This group of nettalkers was looking for hidden files in the secret Internet segments, but the main field of Synthetical Science was "memetics," the study and creation of "mental viruses." More about memetics is written in John Ono's book "Tao of memetic engineering". The association ceased to exist in 2012.

digital suicideI recently let go of some non-essential social media accounts to clear up my digital footprint and bamboozle the three-letter orgs a little, now I only post on anonymous boards. Then I saw the bigshot thread in /r/ and the digital suicide thing. It got me wondering. I think I will probably cut myself off the internet someday soon. I think it's only useful as a distraction and it's become something of an unhealthy habit on my part. Thoughts, agree/disagree?
merge with computersWould you sign up for full-body cyberization if it were proven to be perfectly safe for at least 99.99% of those undergoing the procedure? Would you go even further and replace up to 97% of your brain with artificial components if you were assured that you would retain the 'neural core' of biological neurons necessary and sufficient to maintain subjective conscious experience? I'm very curious where lain would stop on the road between here and there if she would stop at all.

Russia bans on VPN and Tor & surveillanceAs the title says, by Nov. 1 "all software and websites related to circumventing internet filtering in Russia, including VPN software, anonymizers, and instructions on how to circumvent government website blocking" will be derezzed. On 2018 "companies registered in Russia as "organizers of information dissemination", such as online messaging applications, will not be permitted to allow unidentified users".
The future of technologyIt seems like we are on the crux of a big change in the paradigm of computing; namely distribution is in vogue again. We have so many new technologies trying to be foundational infrastructure for the future, and I'm beginning to wonder what it will look like when/if these technologies mature. To name a few of the things I'm talking about there's cryptocurrencies/blockchain technology, ipfs, matrix, and urbit (to ignore all the decentralized social media platforms that have sprung up). These technologies all tackle different use cases, but all of them promote decentralization, open source, and user responsibility of data, in regards to both security and privacy. I'm not even taking into account other recent trends of AI research, the internet of things, biohacking or "actual" cyber-security, but thats an entirely different ball game.
