Love Paul Di Filippo’s definition of 80’s cyberpunk.

Theoretically seeking to merge the primitive vitality and anti-authoritarian disdain of the Sex Pistols and the Ramones with the noir sensibilities and digital savvy of some mythical California superman who possibly resembled a hybrid of Steve Jobs, Timothy Leary and Philip Marlowe, cyberpunk hewed to the standard revolutionary code of killing all elders who couldn’t be co-opted.
