Secret project day

I spent most of today working on a secret project, which I won’t be revealing until some time next year. So there’s not much I can go into about that.

Um. I didn’t do much else, except go out for a pie for lunch, and take Scully to the dog park. It was warm today, but not too hot. Tomorrow is forecast to be hot again. I think we’re really past the chilly weather and into a summer pattern now.

Oh! I also grabbed a bunch of roleplaying books off Humble Bundle today – PDFs of the old Cyberpunk 2020 game by R. Talsorian Games. Published in 1990 (second edition of a 1988 game named just Cyberpunk), it was amusing going through the PDFs and seeing what they predicted that life would be like in the year 2020. Here’s a piece of art showing a guy buying some pirated software off a street hustler with a trench coat full of hot CDs:

I sure know I’d be out on the streets doing this if I wasn’t such an upstanding citizen.

One thought on “Secret project day”

  1. One of the funniest things in Cyberpunk 2020 was the email-to-paper-letter service. It’s mentioned in the basic rulebook, and the Finnish translation has the translator’s comment that this was an existing service in Finland in 1991.

    Also the DataTerms are fun. Computers on open stands on the streets, where you can get the current news – as paper printouts. It’s a bit clunkier than what we have now.
