Assorted Slang and Terminology 6 – Cyberpunk

According to Wikipedia, Cyberpunk is defined as “… a subgenre of science fiction in a futuristic setting that tends to focus on a “combination of lowlife and high tech” featuring advanced technological and scientific achievements, such as artificial intelligence and cybernetics, juxtaposed with a degree of breakdown or radical change in the social order.”

This volume of ASAT gives you a collection of terms and slang to help flesh out your worlds and stories within a genre, in this case cyberpunk.

As well as various ‘punk terms, some computing and corporate terms are thrown is as well, to add to the immersion.

Disclaimer/Note from the Author – This pdf is not meant to be an “end-all” document, more a starting point for your own research. As such, mostly due to space and time restraints, some terms have been left out – if every bit of terminology was left in, this publication would be unwieldy, not useful and probably never finished!

Sample Entries:
Promoting freedom of the individual as opposed to subjection to authority.

Brain Bucket
Slang term for a helmet, normally the one motorbike riders have on.

Cortex Bomb
Cybernetic implant designed to explode or otherwise destroy the brain of the person to whom it was implanted.
