Cyberpunk's dead

My review of "The Transhumanist Wager" by Zoltan Istvan. 

I don't understand people who are still unironic transhumanists. Some of them seem pretty smart in other ways. It feels so 1995, when Raëlianism was the coolest new fad on the block and cyberpunk was young. But today? Trust me, robotics and cybernetics will never progress to the point when humans can merge with robots and/or animals and become cyborgs. Which, all things considered, might be just as good. But despair not, ye mortals. We can still try out steampunk...
