Originally a HyperCard stack in 1991. Beyond CyberPunk!, by Peter Sugarman and Gareth Branwyn.

Review Gleaned from fanzines, anarchist rants, conspiracy theorists, and cyber-tribalists, the work claims to be a "do it yourself guide to the future." It is a playful and irreverent piece of electronic bricolage. For those interested in pushing hypertext toward a highly graphic environment, Beyond Cyberpunk! provides a challenging example. Presented as a "Cyberdeck" with multiple windows, push buttons, and sonic accompaniment, the work is easily navigated through four main zones: Manifestos, Media, Street Tech, and Cyber Culture. Under these four titles are essays by artists such as Hakim Bey, Rudy Rucker, Bruce Sterling, and Robert Anton Wilson. There are also reviews on everything from J G Ballard's Atrocity Exhibition to Batman and the Graphic Novel.
