I discovered when I graduated from Computer Science I prefer people to programming. I toot about Privacy and about how RFC1984 relates to that. I'm concerned by the threat of mass data collection and surveillance. I like to raise awareness of this RFC: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1984

Our #COVIDcautious lifestyle has increasingly pushed us into social isolation. Which has resulted in a siege mentality of sorts, where it's the two of us against the rest of the world. Family and friends were lost to us due to the push towards the normalization of the ongoing pandemic by a neoliberal order under late stage capitalism. It individualized responsibility, which not only forced us deeper under siege, but also made us increasingly lonely.
We tried to reach out to other people in similar situations, but no one seemed interested to engage with us in a committed way. #MutualAid, #GermPods, #CommunalCare, #CirclesOfTrust, it all sounded good in theory. But they were not happening for us.
What can we do?
We would be really grateful for some leads.
I know some people like to talk about sheeple and wolves. Which is a dreadful way think about folks and communities.
But I do think about the weird sheep robot simulation. Whenever someone spouts that attitude.
Some folks lead, some folks like to have someone to get behind. Some folks end up the scout.
I think the scout role is cooler, you explore, are curious. I mean sometimes you end up a very rocky crag like that fugitive merino sheep.
But imagine the weird spots you see.
I remember seeing a cool robotics demonstration on British TV in the late 80s early 90s.
It was a group of small wheeled robots I think doing a weird sheep simulation. What would happen was out of a group of say 7, one robot would be leader, one would be a scout and wander and explore, the rest of the group would follow the leader.
I think it was the University of Sheffield?
Does anyone remember it?
Sometimes I do wonder why I speak up about certain things like the Fedipact and about the Public Health Pledge.
I can't ignore that . None of us can when our systems impact our human rights. We can't when our wish to let stuff slide impacts community safety.
Why am I unable to ignore the issues. Why do I risk alienating my family, friends and professional folk around me.
I can't you see. It's the legacy of those before me. Any less, I'd spit on their memory.
Startup culture runs on bullshit.
It's the only renewable energy source the tech luminaries have reliably solved.
Like in all honesty.
Why don't you want full and enthusiastic consent?
Everyone cheers for you then.
