There's a chess trick where you play an odd number of games with many different people all at once. The trick is that you're just mirroring half the players' moves at the person two or three tables away from them so really they're all just playing each other. Then you only have to beat one person in a real match to win a majority of the games. That's what I think of when I see user data turned into money by a third party.
that escalated from "oh random factoid, interesting" to "totally fucking relevant you have my attention" very quickly
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.
