I had a recent invasive experience with a browser called Firefox. The default search engine was Google, a surveillance capitalist. So I was being tracked every time I wrote into the address bar.

My partners are gearing up to attend the local ICE protest. I've been asked to stay at home and ride overwatch for them.
Plugging in SDRs. Checking charges on camdrone power cells. Checking connections to rooftop antennas. Checking SHODAN search credits.
We went full cyberpunk at home and didn't even realize it. Holy shit.
