I'd say the genre sort of crystalized in the 1980s and strongly reflects some part of the 1980s vision of what the near future might look like. Lord knows someone may write a cyberpunk novel hundreds of years from now, and in my view it would still reflect some of the perhaps quaint aspects of that 1980s imagination.
