Cyber refers to cybernetics and information technology that allows for more intimate interactions with human bodies and brain, and punk comes from rock’n’roll terminology of the 1970s, refering to the young, streetwise, and alienated.
Mirrorshades, an anthology of early cyberpunk stories edited by Sterling, was published in 1988.
Some movies considered to be cyberpunk (or proto-cyberpunk) are Blade Runner (1982), The Terminator (1984), The Lawnmower Man (1992), Johnny Mnemonic (1995), Strange Days (1995), and The Matrix (1999).
