/cyb/ was never really that active, but there are plenty of lurkers.
If you want content, start posting threads.

that's a shame, I was hoping it would be like the old /cyb/ threads on /g/ back in the day, but there's not much here

Well, it's pretty much a blank slate at this point. What did you like about the old /cyb/? If you make a thread, I'd gladly participate.

Although, I will admit that "just post threads" is a rather dry response to somebody who thinks board activity is lacking. Anon doesn't post threads for the same reasons that you and I don't.
So perhaps shifting the burden is an incorrect response. To be more productive, let's first discuss what kinds of threads anons want to see. I thibnk eeryone might post a bit more if they knew what their fellows want to talk about.

a fair point!
well first lets discuss what /cyb/ was all about
cyberpunk as a genre is the expression of the idea that technology will not 'save' us but will instead be our undoing, by enabling those in power to maintain absolute control while simultaneously trapping us in Skinner boxes that we remain in for our entire lives

Cyb threads were all about warning and subversion
1: what new things int he world are dystopian and cause harm to our freedom?
2: what new things can we do about item 1?

Why the heck not? It's not like we've been using /cyb/ for anything productive lately. Any fresh content could be good content.
What kinds of threads do YOU want to see here, Anon?

I would say things such as facial recognition software, automated labor elliminating jobs, robots becoming increasingly present in the military, corporations selling personal information that their clients "willingly" give away to the highest bidder, the imminent reality of human genetic engineering, the lack of privacy in an increasingly digital society, and corporations suppressing free speech by creating monopolies on online forums and attacking the payment proccessors of sites that allow people to circumvent that.

You're fine. It's been a slow day anyway, and I'm bored. Just remember to check the catalog and try to lurk a bit.
