Kid asked me today to teach her 'to crack computer codes'. By which she meant how to unlock her tablet. ;) Oh but apparently she's been getting her techfu from watching Fixies and now thought hackers weren't good.

So we had the kind of discussion you have when you're a cyborg hacker ninja married to an anarchic pirate, and somehow your kid gets propagandized. Which is to say, we covered whether disk drives still have moving parts and whether lightning counts as an electrical signal. Because she could recite the definition from Fixies about wires and signals inside a computer verbatim, but didn't know what a signal was.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
