New townies, new #Introduction #Introductions!

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.

Martin Greenberger, MIT management professor, in Atlantic Monthly in 1964:

Barring unforseen obstacles, an on-line interactive computer service, provided commercially by an information utility, may be as commonplace by A.D. 2000 as the telephone service is today.
