Cyberpunk - write your own stories

Web Sitethe cybRpunk page - by Ken "Wirehead" Wronkiewicz and Marshall Motley - a useful guide for writers & would-be writers of the genre.  The authors say:
"This page often requires a slight amount of familiarity with writing and cyberpunk culture. This is a compilation of various pieces of cyberpunk that I feel people should read in order to write cyberpunk. I leave many points up to your imagination, but I try to warn against bad science. Overwhelm your audience with references to things they have never heard of or hadn't consider the implications of. Technology defines the cyberpunk universe. Don't get it wrong.
If you are a cyberpunk writer, by all means, read the entire page. That's who this page is designed for. Almost all of the
sections are also applicable to other genres of SF. Some of my advice may be useful for other genres of literature as well. "
