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.

I can't help being bewildered every time I ask to use a computer inside University's Medicine department libraries and I'm systematically presented with legacy i386 IBM ThinkCentres running either Windows XP or Mandrake/RH Linux along with a early flat (thick) 1024x768 liquid crystal monitor

this paragraph made me shiver:

"It is no secret. All power is one in source and end, I think. Years and distances, stars and candles, water and wind and wizardry, the craft in a man's hand and the wisdom in a tree's root: they all arise together. My name, and yours, and the true name of the sun, or a spring of water, or an unborn child, all are syllables of the great word that is very slowly spoken by the shining of the stars. There is no other power. No other name."

Can any of my semi-technical peeps here in the fediverse recommend a service that lets me host E-mail groups that isn't Google?

I don't mind paying for it but obviously can't pay "Enterprise" rates for a hobby thing like this (Gonna be a group for my tabletop RPG crew). Need something that will let folks attach small files like character sheet PDFs and the like.

Outfit of the day: a black dress with a few accessories, for once I don't need my phone if you ask me "what time is it". Also I try to bring steampunk back.
