While no article that attempts to document an entire emerging
subculture can be complete, I will do my best to give you enough
complete and accurate information to get you on your way to the future.

This article will focus mainly on cyberpunk culture, rave culture,
industrial, po-mo, virtual reality, drugs, computer underground,
etc. Basically, the elements that make up the developing
techno-underground, the new edge, the technoculture.

Included in this article will be: suggested readings -- books,
magazines, zines, requisite authors, etc., BBSes devoted to relevant
topics, corporations and merchandise geared toward the techno-aware,
Internet e-mail addresses for relevant figure-heads in this area,
suggested music and movies/videos, FTP sites, etc.

I will do my best to update this article every so often, as the
techno-underground is not stagnant and is always shifting and changing
and moving forward.  If you have any complaints/comments/suggestions/
errors or just want to send someone mail, write to me on the Internet
at ahawks@nyx.cs.du.edu.  I also welcome addition requests and such -
feel free to say "hey man, add blah-blah to the list!"

Agrippa: A Book of the Dead - A collaboration between author [William
        Gibson], publisher Kevin Begos Jr, and artist Dennis Ashbaugh.
        This art-work contains engravings by Ashbaugh which appear or
        disappear in light and an on-disk semi-autobiographical poem
        by [William Gibson] which is unreadable after having been read
        once.  Agrippa is notable because in many respects it blurs
        the lines about what art is, and adds fuel to the fire on
        issues of property rights and intellectual property.  A
        highlight of 1992 was the release of Gibson's poem on to the
        [net].

Artificial Life - man-made systems that exhibit characteristics
        associated with the concept of "life".

Artificial Reality - similar to [virtual reality], but more
        interactive, with the participant being part of, not just
        experiencing, the artificial environment.

BBSes - electronic Bulletin Board Systems.  Begun in the late 70's, a
        form of [virtual community] existing in [cyberspace] where
        participants (usually using aliases) may send and receive
        public and private messages to each other on any topic
        imaginable, transfer software (copyrighted and/or public
        domain), play on-line games, etc.  There is the "over-ground"
        BBS world where aliases are less common and illegal activities
        are avoided in discussion, and the [{computer} underground]
        where illegal activities and discussions are very common,
        members use aliases, and illegal information and/or software
        is exchanged.

Boxing - A variety of electronic devices used to aid in [phreaking].
        The original was the blue box, used from the mid 60's to the
        mid 80's, which allowed long distance phone calls to be made
        for free.  A variety of other similar instruments
        accomplishing different tasks have been developed, some
        purely comical, some quite practical.

CC fraud - Credit Card or Calling Card fraud.  common in the
        [computer underground] community.

Chaos Theory - science revolving around simplistic equations
        involving a large number of variables.  Gave rise to
        [fractals], a form of [cyberdelic] art.  For further info on
        the subject, James Gleick's "Chaos: Making a New Science" is
        suggested.

C0dez Doodz - Essentialy a [phreaker]'s version of [pirates].  People
        who seek out telco codes to be used to gain long distance (ld)
        telephone calls without paying for them.  Scurge of the
        [computer underground].

Computer Underground - "A group organized in secrecy, hidden behind
        aliases, to promote the free exchange of information
        regarding anything and everything including, but not limited
        to: computers, telephones, radios, chemicals, and ideas."
        (thanx to The Butler for this definition)
        The mainstay of communication for the computer underground is
        [cyberspace], more specifically [BBSes].  The computer
        underground is comprised of [hackers], [phreakers],
        [piraters], anarchists, and other [cyberpunks].

CP - see [cyberpunk].

Cryonics - The fringe science of freezing a person's head or whole
        body after death, in the hopes that in the future they may be
        revived and brought back to life.

Cyber- - A prefix taken from [cybernetics] generally used in popular
        culture to mean anything that is technologically oriented.

Cyberdeck - Term originated by [William Gibson] to refer to a
        computer used by [deck cowboys] that can connect to the
        [matrix].

Cyberdelic - "Cyber-art".  Examples include [fractals],
        computer-generated pictures and/or music, [virtual worlds],
        etc.

Cybernetics - The study of communication systems in living organisms
        and machines, the mathematical analysis of the flow of
        information.

Cyberpunk - Begun as a literary movement in the 80's, an off-shoot of
        normal science fiction.  Unique in that it generally occurs
        in the present or not so distant future, the characters are
        often considered "punks" (social deviants) and technology,
        (the cyber aspect), is prominent.  "Neuromancer" by [William
        Gibson], published in 1984, is considered by most to be the
        "bible" of cyberpunk.  Another prominent author is [Bruce
        Sterling], editor of another worthy cyberpunk collection,
        "Mirrorshades".  Other examples  of cyberpunk include Max
        Headroom (tv show) and Blade Runner (movie).  Cyberpunk is
        special in that it has evolved from a purely literary movement
        to a realistic subculture.  Many "techno-punks" (ie:
        [hackers]) are considered cyberpunks.  Other contributing
        factors to the cyberpunk subculture include:  virtual reality,
        hallucinogenic and [nootropic] drugs, and industrial and punk
        music.  For an in-depth, detailed look at cyberpunk fiction
        and cyberpunk culture, "Storming the Reality Studio", ed. by
        Larry McCaffery is suggested.

Cyberspace - "The electronic frontier." A completely virtual
        environment: the sum total of all [BBSes], computer networks,
        and other [virtual communities].  Unique in that it is
        constantly being changed, exists only virtually, can be
        practically infinite in "size", communication occurs
        instantaneously world-wide - physical location is completely
        irrelevant most of the time.  Some include video and telephone
        transmissions as part of cyberspace.

Deck Cowboys - Futuristic version of a computer [hacker] or a
        modern-day [cyberpunk].

Electronic Frontier Foundation - (EFF).  Organization founded by
        Mitch Kapor (of Lotus fame) and John Perry Barlow (writer and
        Grateful Dead songwriter) to establish laws for [cyberspace]
        and apply the constitution to [virtual communities].

Flame - disagreement occuring in [cyberspace].  Common on [Usenet].

Fractals - Images created using [chaos theory].  A mish-mash of
        colors presented in a pattern that repeats itself many times
        over.  A popular type of fractal image is one created using
        the "Mandlebrot set".  Fractals are considered [cyberdelic]
        art.

Gibson, William - Considered by most to be the "father" of
        [cyberpunk], along with [Bruce Sterling].  His works include
        the infamous "Neuromancer", "Count Zero", "Mona Lisa
        Overdrive" (these 3 works are known as the [sprawl] series),
        "The Difference Engine" with which he was co-author with [Bruce
        Sterling], and "Burning Chrome" a collection of short
        stories.  Hist latest work is a poem in "[Agrippa: A Book of the
        Dead]".  Gibson says he will no longer be writing the "classic"
        [cyberpunk] novels he is famous for.  His next work is entitled
        "Virtual Light" and is futuristic fiction.

Grep - search, or scan.

Hacker - 60's (1st) generation (orig. MIT):  one who tinkers with
        software, electronics, computer hardware, etc.  80's (2nd)
        [WarGames] generation:  one who enters computer systems
        without permission with either malicious or non-malicious
        intent, to gain, alter, or destroy information (labelled as
        [crackers] by the 60's generation).  90's (3rd) generation:
        often called [cyberpunks], mostly non-malicious [crackers]
        interested in information for the sake of information, and
        not hacking for the sake of the hack - sometimes calling
        themselves "information liberators", they have re-adopted
        more of the original hacker ethic of the 60's which states
        mainly "all information should be free", "access to computers
        should be unlimited and total" and "promote decentralization".
        This new, 3rd generation is commonly associated with the
        computer underground, despite its mostly non-malicious intent.

Industrial - A subculture revolving around industrial music, a
        collection of mostly electronically created sounds and
        samples that results in a fierce explosion of sound labelled
        by many as "the new punk".  This subculture is generally
        anti-political, anti-aesthetic in nature.

Internet - A large and very popular world-wide computer network
        begun by the Defense Department in the 60's that connects
        educational institutions, corporations, organizations, and
        military and government installations around the globe.
        Some organizations exist that offer access to the Internet to
        the general public for an hourly/monthly/yearly fee.  See the
        "BBSes" section of this article for more info, particularly
        those BBSes listed with "public access unix" next to them.
        Suggested are places like the [WELL], [MindVox], Nyx (which is
        free of cost), NetCom, etc.  Many Internet users partake in
        reading and contributing to [Usenet], playing [MUD]s, FTPing
        text files and programs free of charge at the various FTP
        sites, and 'telnet'ing to other Internet sites.  Because of
        its accessibility at a relatively low cost, size (the largest
        computer network in the world), connectivity, and infinite
        amounts of information, many network users prefer the Internet
        to such services as CompuServe (often called Compu$erve on
        the Internet) or Prodigy (which is more restricting in its
        content).  The Internet has something to offer for everyone.
        Other portions of this file such as the suggested newsgroups
        list, list of FTP sites, and list of 'telnet'able services and
        sites, should be very helpful to the new Internet user.  Once
        you gain access to the Internet, it is suggested that you read
        the 'news.announce.newusers' and 'news.newusers.questions'
        and 'news.answers' newsgroups on [Usenet].  You might also want
        to read the file 'NixPub: Listing of Public Access Unix sites'
        to find an Internet dial-up (BBS/Service) in your area.

IRC - [Internet] Relay Chat.  Realtime communication forums between
        [Internet] users all over the world.

Legion of Doom - (LoD).  A legendary group of [hackers] from the
        [computer underground].  When they disbanded, some members
        went on to form a computer security firm (ComSec), Loyd
        Blankenship wrote GURPS Cyberpunk for [Steve Jackson Games]
        and some ended up in jail from [Operation Sundevil].

Matrix - Term coined by William Gibson which refers to the consensual
        hallucination of [cyberspace].

MindVox - A [virtual community] in [cyberspace], also a [BBS]
        connected to the [Internet].  A nexus of the [computer
        underground] and [cyberpunk] and [virtual reality] begun by
        Phantom Access Technologies, former members of the [Legion of
        Doom].  See also the [WELL]

Mirrorshades - A very important collection of [cyberpunk] fiction by
        various authors, most of whom are labelled as the [mirrorshades
        group].  This book is edited by [Bruce Sterling] and should be
        available in most bookstores.

Mirrorshades Group - Original collection of [cp] authors which
        includes William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Tom Maddox, Lewis
        Shiner, John Shirley, SF Eye magazine editor Steve Brown,
        Rudy Rucker, Pat Cadigan, and others.

Mondo 2000 - Very popular [cyberpunk] and [new edge] magazine.
        Subscription information is available elsewhere in this file.

MUD - Multi-User Domain, Multi-User Dungeon, or Multi-User Dimension.
        MUDs are multi-user role-playing-games of sorts that exist on
        the [Internet] for entertainment purposes.  MUDs are
        essentially text-based [virtual worlds] which players
        (participants) may explore, change, or add on to.  In some
        cases, the MUD is not actually a "game" with scores, player
        attributes, levels, etc., but some MUDs are set up this way.
        MUDs tend to be based around different science fiction genres
        such as fantasy, space, or even [cyberpunk].  Some MUD
        environments have no defining characteristics.

Nanotechnology - the science of "micro-machines".  Small gears or
        other machines seen only by a microscope, that can be used in
        areas such as medicine and health, art, and other
        technologies.

Net - A computer network.  Often used to mean the [Internet] when
        referred to as "the net".

Netrunner - see [hacker].

New Edge - Fringe culture and fringe science, mostly techno-oriented,
        and very popular in Southern California.  [Mondo 2000] is a
        magazine devoted to the new edge.

Nootropics - A new science revolving around drugs used to increase
        intelligence, aid in memory, enhance brain activity, etc.
        Touted as a fad by some, others claim that use of nootropics
        actually work.  See also [SmartDrinks].

Operation Sundevil - Secret Service operation begun in 1990 intended
        to destroy the [computer underground] by confiscating [BBSes]
        and detaining [hackers].

Phrack - An important magazine existing only in [cyberspace], of
        interest to the [computer underground].  It's founder, Craig
        Neidorf, now works for the [Electronic Frontier Foundation].

Phreaker - [Hacking] the phone system.  Usually meaning to get phone
        calls for free, whether by [boxing] or [cc fraud].  Individual
        phreakers are called phreaks.

Pirate - One who copies software illegally.  Commonly associated with
        the [computer underground].  Although commonplace, pirates
        are looked down upon as with [codez d00dz].

Post-modern - Literary, artistic, cultural, and philosophical
        movement revolving around the post-industrial world in which
        we live, and the unique aspects of the trends of modern
        society.

Raves - A subculture revolving around all-night dance parties.
        Typically, the parties are generally illegal and thus a
        complex process is involved to find out where they are
        located.  Rave music is generally [techno], the parties
        usually include 1 or more DJs.  Also present in many cases are
        "chill out rooms" which feature more ambient music.  Lasers,
        blaring music, [cyberdelic] images, [SmartDrinks] and drugs
        (most often MDMA {X, XTC, Ecstacy, E}, LSD {acid}, ketamine,
        or nootropics) are all general contributors to the rave
        experience.  Raves are usually held in warehouses, and last
        until the next morning.  Another large part of rave culture is
        the flyers - used to find out where your next  party will be.
        Raves are meant to be very happy events, everyone ideally
        should be open and free, laying aggressions and inhibitions
        aside for the night.  Some have likened the rave experience
        to "a weekly roving [techno-]woodstock for the 90's."  Rave
        fashion includes over-sized baggy t-shirts and pants, hooded
        sweat-shirts, ski caps, and usually bright colors, as well as
        accessories such as whistles, Cat In The Hat hats, "doctor"
        masks, VapoRub, etc.

Slipstream - Term used to denote cyberpunk fiction, particularly
        pre-1984 fictional works that have been influential to the
        [mirrorshades group] or that closely resemble cyberpunk, but
        are sometimes outside of the sf genre.  An example would be
        William S. Burroughs.

SmartDrugs - [nootropics].

SmartDrinks - Similar to SmartDrugs, or [nootropics], the intent of
        these substances, loaded with vitamins, minerals, amino
        acids, and other healthy substances, is to aid in brain
        functioning.  Smart Drinks are most often consumed at
        [raves], thus, the purpose of some smart drinks is to
        "energize" the drinker, not to make them smarter.

Sprawl - Word used by [William Gibson] to mean large mega-cities, and
        places where different cities collide.  Southern California
        and New York City might be early examples of the sprawl. This
        word is used often in modern times as "urban sprawl".

Steve Jackson Games - RPG manufacturers which have played a key role
        in the evolution of [cyberpunk] and the [computer
        underground].  Operators of the Illuminati BBS and makers of
        GURPS Cyberpunk, an RPG guide written by Loyd Blankenship, a
        member of the [Legion of Doom].

Sterling, Bruce - considered by most to be the "co-founder" of
        [cyberpunk] along with [William Gibson].  He is the editor of
        "Mirrorshades: A cyberpunk anthology", which is considered
        the quintessential collection of [cp] works by the
        [mirrorshades group].  Some of his other works include
        "Islands in the Net", "Schizmatrix", "The Involution
        Ocean", "The Artificial Kid", "The Difference Engine" which
        he co-authored with [Gibson] and "The Hacker Crackdown" a
        non-fiction account of the [computer underground] and
        [Operation Sundevil], including the [Electronic Frontier
        Foundation], [Phrack], the [Legion of Doom], [Steve Jackson
        Games], etc.

Social Engineering - Technique often by which [hackers] or [crackers]
        acquire information, such as names and passwords.  Essential
        a modern-day con, often conducted via phone conversations,
        such as portraying onesself as a teclo employee.

Techno- - prefix similar to cyber-, referring to anything which has
        its roots in current or futuristic technology.

Techno - type of music made almost entirely with the help of
        computers, revolving around a fast-paced drum beat (as high
        as 160 BPM), sampling, and synthesizers.

Teledildonics - Virtual sex in a [virtual environment].  Term often
        used by the [new edge] community.

2600 - A popular hardcopy magazine devoted to the [computer
        underground].  Subscription information is obtained elsewhere
        in this file.

Usenet - A collection of "newsgroups" on the [Internet], in which
        [Internet] users may post or read messages on almost any
        subject imaginable.  The topics of discussion are divided up
        into the individual newsgroups, which total about 2000 on
        average.  Usenet is divided into various large sections,
        including the 'alt'ernative newsgroups, the 'comp'uter
        newsgroups, the 'sci'ence newsgroups and the 'talk'
        newsgroups, among others.  A suggested list of newsgroups is
        contained in this file.  Some groups are moderated, while most
        remain completely uncensored.

Virtual Community - any group or gathering that exists in
        [cyberspace].  This could be a [BBS], a [hacking] group, a
        [net], or even a [zaibatsu].

Virtual Culture - the collection of [virtual communities], and the
        cultural aspects unique to those communities.

Virtual Environment - a [virtual world].

Virtual Reality - a consensual hallucination of a world existing only
        in [cyberspace].  Modern day virtual reality uses helmets,
        gloves, and body suits to create such a world, which is first
        created on a computer and connected to the vr devices.
        The goal of virtual reality is to generate a completely
        alternate reality.  Research in vr includes networking
        people, so spacial limitations are meaningless.  The
        possibilities of vr-generated environments are as limitless
        as the imagination.

Virtual World - a world existing in [cyberspace] created and used
        with [virtual reality] technologies.

VMB - (Voice MailBox).  Used (often illegally) by [phreaks] as a
        means of communication.

WELL - The Whole Earth 'Lectronic Link.  An important gridpoint in
        the [matrix], a [virtual community] in [cyberspace], also a
        [BBS] connected to the [Internet].  A group concerned mostly
        with [cyberpunk], [virtual reality], [nootropics], and other
        aspects of the [new edge].

Wirehead - a hardware [hacker].

Zaibatsu - Japanese term used a lot by [William Gibson] that means a
        large mega-corporation, such as Sony for example.

Welp, that looks like it for now.  Have fun!

Many thanks go out to the masses who have added their suggestions, too
numerous to mention.  But an extra-special thanks to Bruce Sterling
and Steve Brown of SF Eye for being *extremely* helpful with
suggestions, comments, and info!

Many thanks go out to Strider (Steve White) for editing this file, as
well as Anne Balsamo for providing a very useful, wonderful
bibliography.

Final Hellos to:  the nameless masses. (yes, you!).  And all those
living on the edge of the future, and to all those working to protect
cyberspace from the fascism that now threatens it.  And everyone else.

Again, if you have any questions/comments/concerns/criticisms/corrections
or any additional info, please contact me at ahawks@nyx.cs.du.edu.
