I had the honor of discussing the history and future of Cyberpunk with the sub-genre's creator, Bruce Bethke, the man who coined the word "cyberpunk" in 1980. Although many others such as PKD, Ballard, and Jeter were deeply influential on the genre, it was in 1980 that it really became solidified. This video relays the discussion I had and his message with music accompaniment.
