So, as many of you know, social media censorship is rampant these days, and not getting any lighter. Algorithms run the world, and people who are supposed to run platforms sit by and say “my hands are tied” as though there’s nothing they can do. Then, platforms are constantly used for purposes never assumed intended, like spying … Read moreI Interviewed Daniel Satchkov, A Founder Of Pocketnet
So Iran and the US are calling each other terrorists, your phone is universally watching and tracking you with malware, likely for the government, and I go into some detail about the illegal arrest of Julian Assange. Plus, the media doesn’t care about innocent Muslim deaths anymore again, so I cover some of those. Life … Read moreThe FBI Has Your DNA Test, Julian Assange Illegally Arrested, Malware Is Spying On You, And More
With social media chiefs coming out on damage control so much recently, I thought it’d be funny to test their shit. It’s in that spirit I’m running two new series. The primary series is #PushTheAlgo, where I’ll be manually testing or exposing the algorithms companies use to run society. The series will include many such … Read more#LearnToCode Files 2: @UnknownLone, @GingerMorticia, @Brad_Glasgow, and @JDenslinger | #PushTheAlgo

So I’m an idiot sometimes, and I occasionally waste a large amount of time on social media. A good example of this is a recent row I got into with a “comedian” on Twitter, caping for the state against Count Dankula, or Markus Meechan. I support free speech absolutism, and mostly, this guy pissed me … Read moreFree Speech Absolutism: Some Replies
So I’ve been meaning to do this for a long while, and recently made it happen… an interview with Jason Bassler of The Free Thought Project about the recent censorship afflicting the social media world. A bit of a disclaimer – I support TFTP by automatically tweeting their police brutality articles, and have a bias … Read moreInterviewing CENSORED Jason Bassler of The Free Thought Project
I’ve been getting approached with some article ideas and things people wanted responded to, since I’ve started this site, and thanks hugely for that. It’s pushed me in directions that’ve kept things interesting, and novelty prevents insanity. Feel free to keep em coming! One of the ways I’ve been approached was someone who wanted to … Read moreIs A Blocklist The UK’s New CopBlock? Probably Not.
So now that I’ve gotten (sort of) a rhythm responding to Twitter here (see this, this, this, and this) another fucking thing came up. This time, a new account is attempting to hijack ThotAudit to make it about Twitch, and others are going extreme on the issue. Debt is at record numbers, and the economy is … Read moreOn THOTs, Audits, Co-Opting, and the NAP
I plan to use this site for many things, but a thing it seems to be being very useful for is covering apparent politically-driven censorship. So today, a story just fell in my lap when someone in a thread I was in got banned today. I have two pieces I’m putting out tomorrow, but today, … Read moreMore Twitter Censorship? Meet Alisa.
Social media’s constrained, and often designed to gather enough info on something to get advertisers, but not enough to actually talk about something. I used to make long threads on places like Twitter, in an effort to convey my points outside a given limit, and I realized one day that I could just start a … Read moreThis is what the Libertarian Party should focus on…
