BlackFire's statement of support for the Coalfire pentesters.
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.
It worries me that the free software community gets the "how" for making GPL-licensed federated equivalents to popular web services, but they rarely understand the "why".
This is evidenced when new services pop up with poor/missing moderation controls and no ability for users to downloading & migrate their data.
If users who don't or can't self-host are expected to swap one unaccountable group for another, and the community is no better, then there is no benefit to them for making the switch.

Dammit, I /really/ want RISC-V CPUs in my gear now.
Thinking about the youtube thing going on atm...
- Calling it a strike is an interesting admission that the eyeballs are, in a sense, workers not customers.
- Rather than single bursts to 'send a message', I think longer term it'd be great to do periodic spans of concerted non-usage; similar to what fridays for future does. Ie. drop the Big Platforms for one day of the week, or two, or three, or all but one... to build the social experience of connecting differently, and the personal experience of filling our time differently.
