They make you feel alone.

It’s how they beat you.

Hackers.town has shown us all...

You are not alone.

These friendships you have made.

These bonds.

They are how we’ll do this.

They are how we will win.

We used to own the void.

Yet we persist.

We gather.

You will have no power here.

Because you’ll end up Either by our sides, or swept aside.

Join the future.

Reclaim the void.

Be mighty, together.

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.

So I was interviewing to fulfill a contract at Veracode this week, and it was a phenomenal experience to get to talk to that team. AThe interview process spoke volumes about their culture... it felt very good.

Ultimately, I did not land the contract, but it was a run right up to the end, and I did well. I look forward to speaking to them again in the future.

Thought we would throw up out own instance of this software. It's youtube, but minus all the ads, trackers, all that cool stuff, might even skirt past your geoblocking. Enjoy, and hey, sub your youtube links with links in there, the audience will thank you.

The silence is staggering! You can hear the water flowing. The electricity buzzing.

This is a strange Athens.
