"Anemoia" is the feeling of nostalgia for a time you haven't experienced

I don't know if there's an equivalent term for places, but I've never been to Japan and yet this quiet street gives me the same vibe

@craigmaloney So, thanks for that, I now understand more of the background of what I've been seeing.

But.. forget all that too, because it led to this, and this.. this is just phenomenal.

Today in "I have no idea what this sentence means" news:

"Nathan Apodaca, 37, of Idaho Falls, recorded a laid-back video while riding a skateboard downhill and drinking Cran-Raspberry juice. The Internet went wild and streamed Fleetwood Mac."

I swear we live in a Mad Libs game some days.

(doesn't have to be full-blown novels or films. a or is more than welcome too, as long as it's related to cyberpunk or perhaps ?)

I haven't read or watched much , but it felt more realistic than the few depictions of I have seen/read.

Any of (or in general) to read and watch, especially to expand my in-universe ?

A handy of terms would also be welcome.

Hmm... writing down that , especially on a phone screen, was probably a bad idea for my cycle...

Though that race as the in the previous dream certainly came close and was very exciting.

Also, I wanted to have this -like script overview written down publicly as well in case I never end up doing anything with it, so it maybe at least can inspire a more accomplished than myself. :)
If you are such writer, and want to flesh out this story, hit me up. :)

If I end up not doing something with this myself in the upcoming weeks, I'll probably just cc-by-sa it.

... not in the very least themselves... (at least till they convince themselves to cross-jack and transfer to rejoin consciousnesses).
(It's likely going to take longer than a few hours though, and they might have to deal with the host consciousnesses waking up and reasserting himself...)

pfew... that took more toots to write down than expected... should probably have marked them unlisted.
Just wanted a place to this.

where the cacophony of voices of a bustling street can be heard, most of them speaking a different language (?), and the reader/viewer is left with the impression that our runner is not easily going to be able to understood (perhaps they don't speak a such as ? a bit unlikely for a runner... again, ...), and that they have a long journey ahead in limited time, and a hard time getting believed by others...

"but where the hell am I?" they say, as they pull off the headset connected to the other runner's , and the camera zooms out to a small apartment stacked with computer magazines, books, computer screens, VR headsets, routers with plenty of cables, and other hardware.
As we hear them say "and how the hell do I get back?" in one language, the camera pulls back further to reveal neon-filled streets (?)

it's left a bit uncertain whether that runner is going to survive, though we hear them (our protagonist runner) think something like: "oh, they'll probably going to be okay, after a couple of hours, though with a huge headache; that'll leave me enough time to find my own exit point again and transfer back."

Instead we see they actually passed the photon and went full , experiencing multiple realities (including the one we saw), and got bounced around (in the dream actually manifesting themselves physically, leaving a face-print on a toilet? again... better not argue with ...), and ended up jacking out into the mind of a runner who got an unfortunate mishap and got mind-poisoned (I forgot the better term my mind came up with).

while most of the tangents went back to the 'reality' before this dream fragment (voices seemingly coming from hardware, threathening my son ? Or was it coming from his sub-c? I bet there's a there too...) one of those tangents went back to the point right before we are left to think the netrunner had gotten trapped in the bulb's circuits.

in the dream at this point it's left a bit uncertain I think if they'd retained the knowledge they were jacked-in for, though I think they did? The dream's getting a bit fuzzy, especially since I'm getting to the part were I woke up, which usually means that it's going off multiple tangents, probably not dissimilar to the runner's multiple threads, though in my case exploring multiple simultaneous alternate scenarios as dream's becoming a low

At first the reader is left to think the had gone braindead, but fortunately they'd installed a safety program and was actually running multi-threaded, and once the other threads had joined again, were bounced and re-routed to the intended end-point, and they woke up dazed, wondering if they'd hit a firewall or had 'pinged out hard'.

wow... that was an intense about a who was and racing the net, tracking transactions (I think it was bitcoin in the dream, but let's keep it as generic ). Once they got the data they needed, they were going to attempt something that was thought impossible: speeding past a photon.
Just as they were about to, some old noob who thought he was helping, unscrewed a lightbulb that caused them to crash [1/?]

Here's what I've been up to lately.

I got an old 1950s Viewmaster camera, and have been using it for family snapshots and pictures of interesting sights around town.

The glowing device in the foreground is the specialized film-cutter. It cuts the stereo-pairs out of the film so they can be inserted into the reels.

I've always loved 3d pictures, but I've never had a 3d camera. So I'm really enjoying learning how to take a good 3d picture.

Btw, @Taweret and @apLundell, if you haven't watched yet, I can at least recommend watching the finale of season 1. :)

First and foremost because it actually criticises 's policy of 'some' interference, and secondly because of a cameo of 2 characters/actors. :)
