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.

I may be getting my hands on an exceptionally crazy hardware build to beat on and see what falls out.

I look forward to it.

@TechnicolorRainbow We'll discuss Afterwar, by @lilithsaintcrow on Thursday, June 10 at 20:00 EDT. Note that reading the book is not required for participation, but if you don't read it and join the discussion, there's a spoiler alert in effect.

Here's the site for the book. And yes, the author is on the fedi!

We'll meet on Jitsi, as usual. Periodic reminders will be sent out.

20 years ago Douglas Adams died. This made a lot of people very upset and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

A couple weeks ago I saw the local McDonald's drive thru had a sign that said "We are short staffed. Please be patient with the staff that did show up. No one wants to work anymore." After that, there was another sign saying the drive thru was closed.

I thought: what? What's going on? Why are they saying no one wants to work anymore?

Apparently this exact same text is showing up on other restaurants as well. It's interesting that they are choosing the exact same 20 words, in the same order...

fun fact: in the 1980s, there were computers connected to the internet-to-be that didn't even really bother doing user authentication.

they just kinda dropped you at a prompt when you connected.

I really like the electronic music from the 90s. Some really solid stuff there.
