If you were to get a brain implant with an external connector in the back of the neck, which plug would you prefer?

Gosh this post has no cw and I guess technically doesn’t need one? But maybe I should have cw’d it for kink.......

@wxcafe RJ45 so you could hear the iconic "click" when plugging the cable 🤤

@wxcafe i don't know cables, which one is a screw-in serial bus
@wxcafe actually I'll take one of those USB-with-screws connectors

re: *very straight face* 

SPF+, clearly! What if they change up the layer 1 medium on me? D: I need that flexibility!

At some point, likely but at the very least i'll have the option of using the new physical formats at that lower bitrate!

@wxcafe oh yes, give me direct DMA to the brain via thunderbolt via USB-C! 😱

@wxcafe Something not standard so nobody could connect to it :<

@wxcafe J'ai pas regardé évangélion, j'ai essayé de lire le mange j'ai rien compris ça m'a saoulé

@wxcafe is this just to send data or are there any other implications?

(I wouldn't use USB-C, but, hey it transfers audio as well, so that a plus)

@wxcafe I would go with RS-232 but I can't really vote on the poll

@wxcafe why is USB-C winning here? don't people know of its dangers???

@wxcafe USB-C pour se connecter dans les deux sens :bloblewd:

@wxcafe (mais l'esthétique de l'USB-C est un peu fade par contre)

@wxcafe I dont want that. A documentary in three parts named matrix shows how bad it soule be.

@wxcafe considering the size of each one, I think I'd prefer USB-C, but others have nice arguments to (especially sfp+ for the upgradability, with a rj45 adapter in it for the *click*)

@wxcafe Going USB-C is the way to a total disaster.

Compatibility is a disaster… RJ45 is safer.

@wxcafe Definitely SFP+, it provides galvanic isolation!!! I don't want to get my brain fried electrically one day via RJ-45, RS232 or USB-C!

SFP also looks like the interface in Ghost in the Shell, although for unknown reasons it can still fry your brain 🤣

Also tagging #cyberpunk

@niconiconi @wxcafe I think USB-C probably gives the most adapter choices out of the list.

@wxcafe for the record, RS-232 isn't a connector.. DB-9 or DB-25 are... and would look way more cyberpunk than usbc!
