Must-See TV: Cyberpunk Documentary from 1990

We saw clips of this for a recent William Gibson post, now here's the whole thing. Functions both as charmingly dated (g)nostalgia for disillusioned GenX'ers like myself and as history lesson for those who missed the movement the first time around. 

As I keep saying, Cyberpunk is suddenly relevant again for several reasons, not the least of which is that we find ourselves living in a Cyberpunk novel, and not a very good one at that. So give this documentary a watch before or after (your choice) Caprica (the last episode before it takes a cripplingly-long hiatus).
