Online Truth: By cyberpunk according to WikiPedia we mean a literary stream of science fiction that appeared in the writings of a circle of American writers in the late 1970 and prevailed in the space until the middle of the 1980. It is characterized by references to the underlying high technology of the immediate future, centered on IT products, telecommunication and genetic engineering, in a usually dystopian, post-industrial social setting.
But because the "immediate future" mentioned by the definition is now here, in the following lines we will try to locate cyberpunk on the internet today. To write it better below we will try to search the internet nonsense, on the internet where we spend our hours. I think the term cyberpunk is a bit "romantic" so I used "internet nonsense" which I think best describes what I mean.
Internet Truth: Do not look at the hacker
The hacker tries to solve problems, explores, has fun, gets excited, and seeks knowledge. The term has been misinterpreted over time and of course does not mean cyberpunk, criminal or swindler. To become a hacker you have to read and those who know the sport, understand that it takes a lot of effort. But apart from the knowledge, you should also "have it." If you are not crazy about solving problems, researching and learning constantly, you should look for a different sport.
Online Truth: Not even to Facebook's son-in-law
The guy is looking for adventure forgetting that he lives digitally. It falls on everyone and everyone and is usually the graphic of a company. Everyone has understood him and he is whistling indifferently…
Online Truth: Not even to the teenager who does not know what he is doing
The teenager may have abusive behavior and aggressive tendencies, but he does not know what he can do. He can not see what the other person is feeling behind the keyboard. If we should definitely impose responsibilities, then we should look to the parents.
From the above we see that we can not call Cyberpunks as researchers, those who try to learn, the graphic roles we meet on Facebook and try to hide, but also those who do not know what they are doing.
We can then create a list of features that capture the online bumper that moves between us.
He likes the easy, he knows very well what he is doing and he knows how to hide or maybe he thinks he can hide. Of course he also likes profit, and if it is easy even better. Do not be misunderstood, you who like profit, we always talk about people who have no other value…
Where can we get it?
Criminologist Grigoris Lazos, he says as the main categories of cybercrime:
Financial crime, attacks on human privacy, libel on the Internet, software crimes, child pornography crimes, material trafficking, and organized crime.
On the Greek Police page there is the following definition:
Computer technology has made it possible to commit a wide range of criminal offenses, requiring specialization and increased training. Thus, "Electronic Crime" is considered to be criminal offenses committed with the use of computers and data processing systems and punishable by specific penalties under Greek law. Depending on the mode of execution, they are divided into computer-related and cyber-crimes if committed via the Internet.
Something is missing;
Let's add the promotion of news gambling ads, and more generally the promotion of all sorts of unethical messages in the form of covert advertising for many and various reasons, usually aimed at cheating the public.
I added the last accusations because I personally regard them as criminal acts and even criminal acts from the safe. For all the categories of cybercrime mentioned by Mr. Lazos, as well as the definition of the Greek Police, there is the Law, regardless of the fact that it is delayed and difficult as the field is really chaotic.
Promoting gambling ads in the form of news articles (and articles), and generally promoting any kind of unethical message in the form of covert advertising, is something that can not be controlled as easily as an online robbery. The message passes and installs in the mind of every unsuspecting reader without opening a nostril.
I believe in free and free internet, but I do not want to live full of impunity.
If there are not sufficient and clear regulations addressed to our benefactors, the messages we receive from the internet will soon be more and more similar to those of today's Greek Television. But how do we get clear and adequate settings when looking in the completely wrong direction?
We already have webpages with Tarzan on the one hand, with first subjects on the other, without those that grow in the middle.
The real problem today is that people are dealing with the teenager, the hacker and the Facebook graphic. At the same time, they receive "valid information" from the anonymous, waiting and demanding from the authorities to solve the groom's problem on Facebook, while the monitoring continues through an electronic eye, while feeding the brain with useless information that seduces and detunes well.
Because then no one will stop using the Internet, and power as it seems unable to hit capital attention to the professional Internet bangers.
Their only value is money and there are no emotions.
Let us mention that in the capitalist systems who produces or who creates a good or a new value is of secondary importance. It is of primary importance who owns it.
Today's society seems to be rigorous (and does it well) when criminal acts are committed by pedophiles, or by all sorts of scammers who usually hunt for easy money, in addition to sick pleasure.
Today's society gives criteria for recognizing Internet-dependent people when it is expected to overturn them after a few years. We are relatively young age on the Internet. After a few years it will be so much part of our everyday life that today's concerns will look really funny.
Children with "addictive" behavior, in addition to engaging in gambling, also use material with sexual content on a more frequent basis than the rest of the population. But do we promote all this ourselves? And if we do not promote it ourselves, do we see it and keep silent?
Did we completely de-coordinate?
I consider hacking for the purpose of revealing pedophiles is not unethical, as it is not unethical if it is aimed at exploring vulnerabilities in electronic systems. It is not unethical, nor the blows to oppressive regimes and governments in general, since it could easily be a kind of protest.
When, however, when there is some suspicion of financial benefit we have a problem, not for those who receive the amounts obviously, but for all of us who are recipients of their products. Because we are no longer talking about visible products that have a certification, but for hidden messages in digital bytes.
