Antiquity Rising

That steampunk currently enjoys the zenith of its renaissance is nothing new to me, but through the use of Google Trends, I learned that residual interest in cyberpunk (which enjoyed its heyday in, I would say, the 1990s [the peak of its crest being “The Matrix” movies]) is now quite insignificant in comparison - in terminal decline, even. Quite interesting vis a vis humanity’s growing development and reliance on personal electronics. Perhaps this event transpires as some kind of subtle rejection of technology in our day to day lives, or maybe it’s all just a whimsical fluke. Food for thought.
