In addition, Iron Crown Enterprises released an RPG named Cyberspace, which was out of print for several years until recently being re-released in online PDF form. They are created specifically for the purpose, can be made to look like any person, and they have no fear of death. With each passing day, Cyberpunk becomes less about the world of “what might be” and more about the world outside our windows.

This movement may also be (perhaps more accurately) described as " Neo-Victorianism ", which is the amalgamation of Victorian aesthetic principles with modern sensibilities and technologies. Feedback exists between systems that are not in themselves closed but contingent upon other systems. He'll never truly be gone as long as we remember him.
