New townies, new !

Just a fellow technomancer screaming into the void.

Posting about privacy, the dystopia of big tech and utopian small tech, cyberpunk, embedded/low-level stuff, retro computing, other arcane bits.

Restricting follow, will approve if you got an avi and some toots and don't seem like a total ghoul.

Tend to follow those that interact often enough, or are interesting, and aren't a firehose of toots.

Auto follow approval and follow back for townies.

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

haha so it seems in Skype if you type :~ (which is often copy pasted if you did a remote command into a home directory) you get the emoji like this 😵‍💫 (not quite but can't find it)

and honestly that's not totally inappropriate

random thought, the "punk" in things like cyberpunk is about having your own agency in spite of world that tries to stop it

"you need to spend to support the economy"

puts the onus on lower and middle class to keep generating wealth for upper class, who are never asked to spend instead of accumulate wealth

we have no need for their authority

they require our compliance

There is a music to the fight.

If you know the beat and the key, you'll see the next note.

they try to isolate us to more easily control us

building a community is a radical act

"everyone should snoop on others and snitch if they get a medical procedure in case it's one I don't like"
