ｃｙｂｒｅ ≠ cyber
ｃｙｂｒｅ describes an optimism, a hope for the possibility of technology rather than a fear of its oppression
ｃｙｂｒｅ represents the reality of what is now possible, in addition to the mythology of what was thought possible
ｃｙｂｒｅ belongs to the indomitable individuals and indefatigable communities who have carved out a home in an invisible layer above reality

@cyberpunkirl *strides in to the publisher's office with a plasma rifle* so where do i deposit this?
@cyberpunkirl I think the worst part is that $100 is less than the cost of most single textbooks. Textbooks easily run $500-800 a semester (in the sciences anyway)
As an Xer whomst learned hhe loopy cursive in elementary school and used it through college, let me say that I am not at all sad to see it go. It's a terrible hand and no one should use it.
Too many of the letter forms are similar (e,i,l; l,b), some are indistinct (r), and some bear no resemblance to their printed form (s, many capitals). When written well, it's tolerable, but it very quickly becomes illegible.
Just say no to looped cursive.
@cyberpunkirl You know what's even more dystopian?
Having a disorder where you might overproduce red blood cells and iron, but you can't donate because you did a butt sex once this year.
