- Weird article by David Wall: "Cybercrime and the Culture of Fear: Social Science Fiction(s) and the Production of Knowledge about Cybercrime"
Without reading his paper (but hey, i'm a grad student, i'll make summary judgements from the summaries), it sounds like he's made two errors:
1) not giving enough weight to his examination of the culture of fear that the news media use to get more viewers ... about everything - cybercrime, medical crime, incest scandals, etc.
2) by implying that it's in cyberpunk that these characters originated it's excluding the idea that the baddies come from other literary tropes..
