Alright it's #reintroduction time.
Earlier, I said I was still thinking about it and I lied. I have put very, very little thought into this.
I'm interested in a lot of things, and I'm constantly reading and learning new things.
Right now, I'm really interested in #sustainability, so I've been focused on learning more about that, as well as static web design because static websites use far less energy.
I talk about this, and security and privacy, on my website ApproachingUtopia.com (and @staff )
For my day job I handle public relations and marketing for a national trade association.
For now that's all I got for #introductions. If I think of anything else, I'll add it to a thread below.

Watch #Google announce a "ContentID for small businesses as a service, so that everyone can comply with Article13". And just like that, not only do they know who from where visits what website, but now also what they upload there.
This could be used in all sorts of ways, in order to build a further profile of you even if you try to avoid Google itself, to blackamil you if you anywhere, ever infringed copyright, to prevent anyone from storing 'leaks' anywhere etc.

Welcome to "prove you're not a robot" hell
You made a god angry or something
So now for eternity, you get to:
Select all the boxes that contain buses
Select all the boxes that contain crosswalks
Select all the boxes that contain free labour for Google
And "Trust us," says Google, "This makes the web better for *you* somehow"
"And we promise," says Google, "that we will believe that you're not a robot if you get *this* one right"
"Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it."

Very good point: We have to stop thinking of beeing a good or bad person as something one _is_ and start thinking about it as a process, a thing one _does_.
Noone thinks that a clean person is clean, and therefor never have to brush their teeth. We are not either clean or unclean, good or bad. We do good or bad things, and we all need to check the mirror to see if we have something stuck in out teeth.
Never thought about this before, but the #Firefox "Reader View" is a decent way to bypass some adblock detectors.

But they never really talk about wireframes and like how to assemble a design, how to pitch a design, and stuff like that.
Where do I learn that stuff?
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.
