However, since the world is much cleaner, and with the show's magic being used for good purposes in addition to the bad, it doesn't fully fit. Number of bids and bid amounts may be slightly out of date. These prospects must and should effect our thoughts and expressions and, yes, our actions; and if writers close their eyes to this, they may be entertainers, but they are not fit to call themselves science fiction writers.” “Cyberpunk is roadkill on the information superhighway of the 1990s.

Sterling became the movement's chief ideologue. Certainly it helps if you can band together with a couple of other writers. In Wild Palms, for example, we see the merger of alternative religious movements, such as the Church of Scientology; alternative media practices, such as virtual reality; alternative economic structures, such as horizontally integrated conglomerates; and alternative political structures, including both a world where corporate funding dictates political power and one where libertarian activists challenge centralization.
