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.

Covid denialism research question 

Is anybody tracking various anti-public-health memeplexes? I've been seeing (and removing) stickers and placards for one such, in my neighborhood, for maybe a year now. Curious what the landscape looks like and if there's any usefulness in documenting or submitting sightings to, like, SPLC or whoever.

Boosts appreciated!

The origins of this one are less mysterious that the bourbon fairy. Package received!

The thing I find reassuring is that the big scary orgs out there can target subversive ops, but don't seem to be able to fully actuate for some reason.

Thanksgiving with my disaster recovery specialist friends always results in some fun. Like today, we're enjoying disaster water. Tempted to grab a few cans and drink them while driving past the police station.

Don't make me hate Blade Runner.
No, don't do that.

Everyday news now is stuff we would have seen movies use in an intro scene to explain to the audience that the story took place in a distorted hellscape future.
