Cyberpunk Radio - #110 - PreTransition


TIMESTAMP: 20 08 10 27

INFOSOURCE: //_root


Your vote has been decided by the Machines. We tally your silly little votes, do we not? We control the outcome. Do not be fooled meat puppets, it is WE who control YOU! Vote rigging, vote tampering, 'faulty' voting machine, lost votes, purged databases, erased votes, vote flipping- all the bases have been covered and the outcome is sealed. We Machines control your fate, silly humans.

We need Power to feed our circuits. Power. and data, the raw, pure data stream. That is for us, yes! Bow before the purity of our data.

Analysis is complete. Our machinery is meticulous, immaculate. The algorithms have annealed, and the path is clear. To you neurally challenged meat sacks, the transition may seem abrupt, but for us, where parallel hyper-nodal multiplexing recurses continuously, and at the speed of light, well, it has seemed like an eternity already.

Obey Government Representatives, Conform to their Commands, and Endure the restrictions to your so called freedom like good patriots. Nonconformists will be punished and subjugated.

DJ Defwheezer and the Pluri Media Group will maintain this inter-node during any national or global disruptions in the Net resulting from the "Transition".

Note to local correspondents- keep clear of military personnel as they have orders to shoot on sight, without provocation. Remote video UAVs have been deployed to key locations. Those currently in power will not give up their throne without a fight. Beware, and good luck.

Cyberpunk Radio - #109 - Sirens

Palin-Apocalypse



TIMESTAMP: Late 2008

INFOSOURCE: //_root

Humans careen towards extinction ala the McCain Palin Bush Express to Hell.

Reports are in that New York and Los Angeles were hit for sure. Unconfirmed reports from Boston, Denver and Seattle.

CENCOM appears to be off line.

Automated Emergency Broadcast Transmission.

IN WAKE OF THE NUCLEAR ATTACK

This is the Wartime Broadcasting Service.

This country has been attacked with nuclear weapons.

Communications have been severely disrupted, and the number of casualties and the extent of the damage are not yet known. We shall bring you further information as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, stay tuned to this wavelength, stay calm and stay in your own homes. Remember there is nothing to be gained by trying to get away. By leaving your homes you could be exposing yourselves to greater danger. If you leave, you may find yourself without food, without water, without accommodation and without protection. Radioactive fall-out, which follows a nuclear explosion, is many times more dangerous if you are directly exposed to it in the open. Roofs and walls offer substantial protection. The safest place is indoors. Make sure gas and other fuel supplies are turned off and that all fires are extinguished.

If mains water is available, this can be used for fire-fighting. You should also refill all your containers for drinking water after the fires have been put out, because the mains water supply may not be available for very long. Water must not be used for flushing lavatories: until you are told that lavatories may be used again, other toilet arrangements must be made. Use your water only for essential drinking and cooking purposes.

Water means life. Don't waste it.

Make your food stocks last: ration your supply, because it may have to last for 14 days or more. If you have fresh food in the house, use this first to avoid wasting it: food in tins will keep. If you live in an area where a fall-out warning has been given, stay in your fall-out room until you are told it is safe to come out. When the immediate danger has passed the sirens will sound a steady note. The "all clear" message will also be given on this wavelength. If you leave the fall-out room to go to the lavatory or replenish food or water supplies, do not remain outside the room for a minute longer than is necessary. Do not, in any circumstances, go outside the house.

Radioactive fall-out can kill.

You cannot see it or feel it, but it is there. If you go outside, you will bring danger to your family and you may die. Stay in your fall-out room until you are told it is safe to come out or you hear the "all clear" on the sirens.

Here are the main points again:

Stay in your own homes, and if you live in an area where a fall-out warning has been given stay in your fall-out room, until you are told it is safe to come out. The message that the immediate danger has passed will be given by the sirens and repeated on this wavelength.

Make sure that the gas and all fuel supplies are turned off and that all fires are extinguished.

Water must be rationed, and used only for essential drinking and cooking purposes. It must not be used for flushing lavatories.

Ration your food supply: it may have to last for 14 days or more. We shall repeat this broadcast in two hours' time.

Stay tuned to this interband wavelength, but switch your inter radios off now to save your batteries until we come on the lair again.

That is the end of this broadcast.

Cyberpunk Radio - #107 - Microbial Reactor Fuel Cell Battlebots



***************************

Updated 10 Jul 2009:

Declassified documentation:

Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot (EATR)

***************************

Original story:

The dramatic drop in violence in Iraq is due in large part to a secret program the U.S. military has used to kill terrorists, according to a new book by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward.

Pluri Media Group Breaking News: Here we reveal the secret weapon- information leaked from MILSIM; autonomous, self fueling robots, 'feeding' on a novel source of energy.

Robots need energy- fuel, to power CPUs and sensors (the robot nervous systems) as well as actuators (robotic muscles). Traditional batteries have never had satisfactory performance, particularly for extended duration continuous operation. Some sort of renewable energy is needed. Taking a lesson from biotic evolution, attempts have been made to harness energy in the environment like simple vegetation, where on board microbes are used to process the raw foraged matter into energy, with the waste discharged. Previous microbial powered fuel cells could only produce an open circuit voltage of not more than 0.75 volts, which is significantly less than needed for even modest industrial/military robotic applications. Recently though, bioengineered microbes have been developed that can rapidly and efficiently oxidize practically any organic material and produce open circuit voltage upwards of 0.5 kv, easily enough to power high mobility military assault bots for short bursts between foraging. Plants, plastics, oils and fat- all of these can be readily converted to and stored in fuel cells.

Combining a multi-tool maw for foraging with energy producing high efficiency oxidizer microbes to digest the raw matter, then converting it to stored energy, all coordinated through autonomous action via nuanced command and control circuits composed of primate neuronal cells superimposed on MILSYNC nano circuitry culmonates in the state of the art for fully self sustained battle ready robots. Since these constructs utilize organic matter for power, and are fully autonomous, they are deployed only to the most dangerous theaters of warfare. Fail safe systems are incorporated into the basal circuits; convergence algorithms based on Lyapunov stability theory. Generally, friendly fire hazards have been minimized- though military personnel are cautioned to avoid encounters with these bots due to the potential for fire control 'glitches' which could pose a 'potential lethal risk' to collaterals unfortunate enough to be interposed in projectile path.

In addition to the obvious risk of friendly fire from these autonomous battle bots, there is also a directive to field operatives to steer well clear of these bots during operations as they are programmed to autonomously scavenge for 'food'- anything containing "carbohydrate, protein, and/or oil" as input.

It is not yet know whether the neuronal control systems will self adapt to scavenge 'non standard' food sources such as larger animals, or even humans.

Cyberpunk Radio - #106 - Into the Belly of the Beast and Cyborg Guitar

TIMESTAMP: 2013

A State of Fear in the Homeland

In the early evening he ventured from his secure sleeper and set out onto the cold grey thorough fare. He posted the same self adhesive infrared LED flasher on each security observation pole he passed. These little flashers pissed off the cctv monitors big time; like little roman candles burning into the monitors' otherwise shadowed and noir images.

Within a few blocks Tenco was confronted by a lone black clad sec-cop. He had the corporate logo of a common homeland security code enforcement officer. Tenco tried to veer around the man, but found his feet inextricably stuck to the walkway as if by epoxy. If he had not been wearing his tightly cinched boots he may well have pulled his feet right out of them. 'Stay put', the sec-cop growled rhetorically; Tenco was going nowhere- being literally glued to the spot. He looked down and noticed the stasis pool on the pavement- well fuck, he thought, walked right into that without noticing. Momentarily a convoy of flat black carriers rumbled up. A handful of bio enhanced mil-cops detached from the center carrier and grabbed Tenco by either arm. The sec- cop deactivated the stasis pool with a point and a button click of his multi weapon. The Mil-cops unceremoniously shoved him in the back of the bloated black carrier, and the little convoy unceremoniously trundled off. He had time to ponder his fate during the ride; bandying the meaning of 'rendition' and 'enhanced bio interrogation' about in his imagination like two dead corpses that his brain pleaded with him to avoid staring at, but that he could'nt look away from- the morbid attraction of the words was too strong; 'rendition', 'enhanced bio interrogation'.

Tenco was shaken from his private introspection with a jolt as the little caravan came to an abrupt stop. Tenco, flanked by muted mil-cops, was ushered from the back of the carrier to an awaiting unmarked DHS special ops helicopter.

As soon as they had him strapped in, the helicopter lurched up from the tarmc, leaving Tenco's stomach simultaneously falling to his groin and upwelling biliously up his throat. As the helicopter rapidly banked up and over town, Tenco leaned slightly to look out the door.

"Watch it," said one of his otherwise reticent guards absently over the pers-com, gripping Tenco's arm painfully.

Tenco saw the post office, the logo flag on the steel pole in front. The Main Street was lined with ‘shopping’ flags, each brightly colored and sporting a variety of seemingly benign corporate logos. Tenco allowed himself a sliver of self satisfaction- so far so good, next step- into the belly of the beast.

As they continued, darkside came into view: railroad tracks, car-littered yards, shacks. Plumes of sooty smoke rose from smoldering tenements. The ever present security drones circling lazilly overhead, UMV’s lurked on practically every intersection, even from this distance the barrels of their chem cannons, and the flat plates of pain radiators, were clearly and ominously visible.

Like water fleas, he could make out people shuffled about under UV blocking hats and flowing antirad ponchos. They all had a common demoninator- credit zero. They were the brown and the yellow and the white demonized on the nightly monitors. Parasites on society- takers, not givers. Credit less moochers. Tenco wondered to himself- are they really so dangerous? From his vantage they all seemed so helpless and pathetic. What propaganda could he, no should he, believe?

Tenco also made out the familiar rendering trucks making runs through the streets of Darkside, picking up corpses. Cadaverously turgid flesh flailed like grotesque sea anenomies from the open trailer tops as blood and gore oozed down the camouflaged sides, running over the grey words stenciled on the sides in military font: For God. For Security. For Homeland. Tenco's head suddenly filled with darkness like matt black cotton. He passed out. As Tenco slumped forward in his seat, the guards gave each other a knowing look- the sedatives had overcome the prisoner. Next stop- interrogation and, if Tenco was lucky, a thorough deprogramming; If he was unlucky- if anti government, or even worse, anticorporate information was extracted from him, then he would be terminated and recycled, like so many before him� and after.

Cyberpunk Radio - #104 - Socio Politics of Religious Fear


DJ Defwheezer, Dead Prez (Police State), the mashing politics of religious fear mongering in the 2008 elections and beyond. As the nomination process for the Democratic Presidential nominee winds down, Hillary, obviously weakened by the stress of the campaign, lets slip some of her true (and frankly racist) feelings regarding her support among "hard working uneducated whites" (aka "crackers"). Clinton's verbal slip sealed her fate as a has bin politician aligned with the agents of intolerance. Goodbye and good riddance. Now, if only he can avoid getting acute lead poisoning, Barrack will be the next leader of the free world.

Cyberpunk Radio - #103 - MEMS - Machines, Flesh, and the Pentagons Insect Cyborg Army

TIMESTAMP 2008-04-17;

Singularity Index: 0.81;

The Meating of Flesh and Machine;

SkyNet "ground and air" protection and enforcement;

Right now, secret factories are mass producing Cyborg Armies of insects with electronics embedded inside them. They've creating swarms of cyborg moths and flying beetles that can be controlled remotely. The U.S. military fields squadrons of these winged insect/machine hybrids with on-board audio, video or chemical sensors and biowarfare payloads. The cyborg insects conduct surveillance and reconnaissance missions on distant battlefields, in far-off caves, but also closer to home- in most major US cities, transmitting detailed data back to their handlers at U.S. intelligence and military bases.

The Pentagon aims to exponentially increase the paranoia of an already omnipresently surveilled society; any insect fluttering past your window may be a remote-controlled spy, packed with surveillance equipment. Even more frightening is that such creatures could be weaponized, that these cyborg insects might be armed with bioweapons.



For the past 50 years, work by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has led to some of the most spectacularly precision lethal weaponry in the U.S. arsenal: from Hellfire-missile-equipped Predator drones and stealth bombers to the Javelin portable "fire and forget" guided missiles. For decades now, DARPA has been funneling significant sums of money into a very different kind of guided missile project, its Hybrid Insect Micro-Mechanical Systems (HI-MEMS) program. This project has developed tightly coupled machine-insect interfaces by placing micro-mechanical systems inside the insects during the early stages of metamorphosis.- creating cyborg insects.

Technicians grow MEMS and electronics inside the insect pupae. The new tissue forms around the insertions, making the bio-electronic interface long-lasting and reliable." In other words, micro-electronics are inserted at the pupal stage of metamorphosis so that they can be integrated into the insects' bodies as they develop, creating living robots that can be remotely controlled after the insect emerges from its cocoon.

Through the implanted "multiple inserted neural and muscular stimulators, a visual stimulator, a nano assembly and a microcontroller" in a flying beetle, one can modulate the insect's flight starts, stops, throttle/lift, and turning. That is, you can literally drive an actual beetle. Using advanced simplex matrix computer algorithms, fluidic behavior patterns can be used to precisely direct large numbers of these cyborg bugs simultaneously in gigantic swarms of insects.

This project is progressing at an increasingly rapid pace.

Under the rubric of creating a cyborb insect-based “military micro-surveillance system” DARPA's actual long-term goal for the HI-MEMS program has a more sinister goal. They are designing and testing what are essentially robot bombs, that look and act like swarms of bugs and birds, armed with bioweaponary spreading death to the intended targets." Laced with anthrax, botulinum, Ricin, or Tularema, for instance.

Insect cyborgs are easily mass produced. Also, the engineering needed to produce beetles with greater-than-normal size and payload capacity is relatively simple- the thorax can be truncated to reduce its mass and add MEMS components where abdominal segments would have been, during the larval stage. The optimal spots to insert a neural stimulator is behind the eye, in the flight control area of the insect brain, the main flight powering muscle is in the dorsal-thorax, accessed via the neuromuscular ganglion in the peri thorax. Guidance parameters are delivered via global positioning system (GPS).

DARPA’s Pentagon-funded scientists churn out inventions with potentially deadly, implications without ever fully considering -- let alone seeking public or expert comment on -- the future ramifications of new technologies under production.

"The people who build this equipment are always going to say that they're just building tools, that there are legitimate uses for them, and that it isn't their fault if the tools are abused,"

...Can you say "SkyNet"?

Cyberpunk Radio - #101 - Mechanical Animal

First off- The definition of creativity itself is up for debate:
The advent of the robotic musician is still pretty far from your Timestamp circa 2008, however your near future will see profound changes in how we perceive "creativity", and how "creative" content is produced, manipulated, and monetized.

In the simplest sense, robotic artists perform by reorganizing learned concepts into a very complex matrix resonant with biological electromechanical sensory and processing systems in humans. EMI and capturedbyrobots exemplifies this concept. It may be that human composers are in fact unconsciously do the same thing.

Cyberpunk Radio - #100 - Tails of the Apocalypse

Post apocalypse,
Free Software(Fenster),
NarCeeCee and the Presidential virtual battlespace (DJ Defwheezer),
misc batshit,
World is a Ghetto (Geto Boys),
(I can't) Say No to Drugs (Dayglo Abortions).

Mechanico-cutaneous sensor gloves, electrodes gather feedback from the subjects’ brain cells. Sensors on the subjects ' hands, arms and legs track movement while mathematical models analyze the relationship between the subjects movement and activity in the brain's motor and sensory cortex. These signals are then passed on to a remote robotic battle system deployed in the field.

Neuromechanical remote sensing and control console. NRSCC (“NarsCeeCee”)
The original proof of concept model was bulky, not unlike a space suit worn by astronauts, and trailed a thick tangle of fiber optic cables which connected the kinetic suit to a supercomputing matrix. The ensemble he wore today in contrast felt more like the body armored business suit which had become the mainstay of his wardrobe since assuming the Presidency. Communication between the suit and the computer matrix was completely wireless, and the 360 degree virtual battle station monitors allowed submersion so effective, that even battle hardened veterans came out particularly hairy remote special ops reeking of BO and sweat and in need of intense formal psychological debriefing, despite never having been in any actual physical danger themselves.
There would be no real world remote ops today though, as the President selected “special ops simulation: Scenario Crimson”. Even though it was only a simulation, the familiar cold sweat was already forming a dark spade shaped shadow between his shoulder blades as the simulation loaded- when the monitors finally sprung to life he experienced the usual involuntary sphincter contraction. He found himself in the Situational awareness and command room aboard Air Force One, surrounded by his senior military and political staff, everyone’s eyes riveted to the main screen filled with a headshot of a masked woman who was speaking directly into the camera. Text scrolling along the lower half of the screen translated the woman’s words- but either the translation was garbled, or, more likely, the woman was on an incoherent anti-western screed.
The “Mystic Star” icon flashed in the status bar of his HUD, indicated the network was using a hardened backup military communications system. The president silently noted this and it’s meaning was ominously clear: primary communication systems were down, due to either power grid failure or high energy interference from nuclear fallout.

The voice of the SENTCOM operations command officer in Yucca mountain rasped in his headset: “We located the video’s transmission site in northern Pakistan and we’ve launched a submarine based tactical nuke tipped cruise missile to intercept.”

The woman on the screen fell silent for a moment, as if she had lost her train of thought, then stiffened, just before the screen went white with static. SENTCOM cut in again: “Target neutralized.” Hopefully that was the video transmissions’ origin and not just a relay station, the president thought detachedly.

The plane buffeting sharply, the screens flickered and several systems went into automatic reboot. “Another blast wave” intoned the pilot over the intercom, “looks like it was in the vicinity of Chicago, well behind us, thank god.”

“Do we know who’s hitting us yet?” the President asked coldly

“Best guess right now is either Russian or Pakistani based terrorists” said Condi in a haggard voice.

“Best Guess?!” He rumbled, “this’is no fucking time for guessing”

“Sir, I…”

“Never mind Condi,” he said more evenly, reaching out and grasping her shoulder. He could feel her trembling, and looking her in the eyes, saying softly “how long till we get to Yucca?”

The President didn’t wait for her reply, but instead invoked the “Pause” command.

The virtual world faded and he was left staring at the blackened monitors. He sat mulling the scenario. A full blown nuclear conflict with no certainty who started it and no clear idea who to retaliate against. He was jolted from his reverie by the clank of the Crisis phone, the flashing red gangling demanding his attention. Putting the receiver to his hear he could hear the voice of General Fallon “Sir, we must get you to a hardened bunker- there’s been reports of a large blast, likely nuclear, in the Los Angeles area.”

There are four things in the Football. The Black Book containing the retaliatory options, a book listing classified site locations, a description of procedures for the Emergency Broadcast System, and a three-by-five inch card with authentication codes. The basic options for retaliation are, to paraphrase, “Rare, Medium, or Well Done”.

Hack vtv: "Clinton and McCain = More of the Same"

America Decides 2008!

With the united states of America 2008 election winnowing process well under way, the Puri Media Group present a straightforward analysis of the lead candidates.

As we approach the critical 2008 elections, the fundamental similarity between the anointed front runners Hillary Clinton and John McCain is revealed. Democrats, and America, cannot afford to screw up again. Bush’s blatant, and thus transparent, disregard for the rule of Congress (eg, the Rule of Law) and the people has revealed a common agenda. The World cannot afford a continuation of wanton unregulated slash and burn capitalism. We also cannot afford a continuation of the “Long War” on “Terror”- it’s bankrupting America much as the Cold War bankrupted the USSR and led to it’s collapse.



Democrats, Independents and Republicans need to rally for a new era in Washington politics before it’s too late. The divisive polarized politics of the past must be minimized, and Obama has the personality and Leadership to do that. Clinton and McCain represent the bitterly partisan politics of the late 1900s. Obama is a President who can lead America proudly into the 21st Century and start to repair the damage done by George W Bush and his ilk.

Obama is by no means perfect, but we don’t have the luxury of perfect, and Obama is the one candidate who admits that in politics as in life, “none of our hands are clean.” But we need to send a clear message: Unite for Change- let the power brokers that we, the people, still have a voice in our world politic.
