Masto is there any creepypasta tech-oriented story you think should exist but doesn’t? I’m kind of over the surveillance capitalism stories even though I am legit worried about that stuff

I've always been fond of things along the same lines as Polybius...

@caraellison what if my entire personality and free will is in fact just highly trained autoresponses


“A forgotten mainframe” and something like The Holders

and i'd like more stories like “jvk1166z.esp”

@caraellison I think there's interesting territory to explore in the phenomenon where people bury things under so many layers of transactions and business entities nobody knows what the heck is going on, exemplified in this recent story


I was struck by a (fictional) talk.bizarre post from many, many years ago where the protagonist discovered decades-old network packets still bouncing around a WAN.
