DEF CON Planning

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.

If you poke somebody enough times, and they fight back... they are usually not the asshole.

I am singing the NEW PEN song, which is a glorious song, and the dogs are very concerned but also happy for my joy.

@nobody My TTD passed a few decades ago so I'm working on borrowed TTL.

Void, gift me the tools to build the future stolen, and return us to the future state.

I scream into your abyss.

I await your return.

I miss the old days. The days when the government was afraid of the people. Afraid of the power that they had.

Pick your tools.

Get to work.

Reforge what they took.

Learn where you are.

@thegibson I was a nascent being, indoctrinated into the matrix that was my local BBS. I breathed vacuum fluorescent displays with my cathode ray lungs.

Where are you now?

With your tiny polished Black terminal?

Where are you now?

With your fear clutched tight?

When we forged the future from cold empty void?

When they stole it all?

Were you there then?

Where were you?

Do you remember the smell of warm vacuum tubes?

The cathode ray glow upon your face?

Were you even born yet?

Were you alive when?

Were you ALIVE then?

When all that golden promise turned to rust?

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.
