For example, you're using cyberpunk, so let's start by picking a technology: cerebral implants, intended for use in accessing an expanded internet, for example. Now, let's do something nasty to it: an explosion occurs in a research facility, specifically in the department that handles implant research. The explosion damages an experimental device intended for upgraded communication with implants; the malfunctioning device has connected to the implants of the researchers who were in the lab at the time of the accident, and, being faulty, wiped their minds almost entirely clean — and left them with nothing but ever-building rage in what remains of their consciousnesses.
Worse, any implant brought near to any so afflicted automatically connects to their implant, and causes the glitch to affect them, spreading the mind-ravaging horror.
So, we now have a problem in our setting. Then next step is to think about how are people going to react: What will those in the facility do? Will there be any official response? Who will get sent in, if anyone — or will someone just nuke the place? Is there anything in the facility that might help?
