I know I'm a little late to the party here, must have missed this discussion last night.
@CARLOOA I agree that most of the points Leslie discussed were at the very least undeveloped, and I agree with @branespload that the idea she touched on were ones that need a wider discussion.
There was one major oversight that I think is harder to ignore: the proposition of clothing (techwear) as physical augmentation. While Leslie does touch on this when she references E's quote on how "everyone is already a cyborg" it is used as a justification for Acronym's cyberpunk aesthetic rather than the proposition that clothing can act as a sort of knights armour protecting him from whatever unfavourable situation he may find himself in, which is the actual functional core of Acronym and Arcteryx Veilance (although ACR brands itself like it is also augmenting the wearer for a slightly more violent situation than AV). Its that idea of 'if phones can augment our memory and contact lenses can augment our vision, why can't our clothing augment the way we interact with the current weather conditions?' (not actually quoting anyone in particular).
The misunderstanding of this concept where techwear is thought of as an aesthetic movement is the root of this issue. The image of cyberpunk's pension for augmentation that ACR's clothing exemplifies is combined with a multicultural image of the streets of 2019 Los Angeles (from Blade Runner rather than next year) and Neuromancer's Chia city, Akira's Neo Tokyo, etc. have created an oriental image that smaller companies that don't understand (or don't care about) the proposition of augmentation have built off of because it references the same fiction that ACR does and that seems to satisfy those who also fail to understand this pension for augmentation.
So yeah, brokebois are ruining techwear XD
