These friendships you have made.

These bonds.

They are how we’ll do this.

They are how we will win.

We used to own the void.

Yet we persist.

We gather.

You will have no power here.

Because you’ll end up Either by our sides, or swept aside.

Join the future.

Reclaim the void.

Be mighty, together.

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

They will from the void build new works powered by the willful.

They will control their data, not entrusting their cache with the wizards in their towers.

They will work together to restore the future to it's intended state.

They will win with numbers, resolve, their will, and mutual aid.

They will win because the cruelty of greed is not more powerful that the instinct to survive, nor the nature of freedom.

Shape the void.

Own the wires.

Restore the future.

Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

Hey, friends of the Fediverse. Just because I'm curious, what's your eye color?

Boosts appreciated for sample size <3

I poke fun at Canada a lot, but it comes from a place of love.

You guys are the sane neighbors in the apartment above the meth lab... and I'm just glad you are there.

Getting a little excited about the duet2 wifi board.

For those keeping score at home, I still don't know who sent the bourbon.

At the airport playing uber.

This game sucks!

the year is 2025. openai lobbies congress to force websites that publish user-generated content to guarantee content is free of synthetic data (and mark it as such w/metadata in the html). google lobbies for compulsory no-cost licensing of all content published to the web, unless the site owner follows [proprietary standard that costs millions to implement]. facebook pays below poverty wages to thousands of contractors in locked, device-free rooms to type sentences, any sentences as LM fodder

Covid-19 turning the South into a tombstone 

This is insanity. Jesus Christ

Nice waking the cult up sometimes with mspaint manipulated artwork.

In the track "Mad Sidewinder" by Clutch, Neil says "Snatch it Back, snatch it back and hold it!"

Which is as cool as Ice-T, but not as cool as J-Bone.
