#WeAreNameless please give your cyberpunk movies and anime suggestions in the following pad: etherpad.fr/p/wearenameless

I'll export those suggestions and then go from there for the next movie nights' decisions.

If you want, give me also, in UTC, your preferred times/availability, so I can maximize this thing for all of us to have a nice time together again at the same time! :)

Thank you for playing,
Ella Kane

#WeAreNameless crowd,

we're watching Strange Days tomorrow, 17 of November at 10pm UTC!

There's still time to get your copy (or lookup a stream or whatever, I don't judge).

Don't forget to pin the hashtag. It'll be used to hangout and comment during the movie!

With love and excitement,
Ella K. :C_H:

I'm not an expert but I think the inscription reads "Girl, same".

In fairness it is good shit and I too would be reluctant to return it, but that's not really a good enough reason.

"Look at all this shit we stole and have no intention of returning!"

When your museum contains a permanent sign and a rack of leaflets explaining why people are always asking you to return that shit you stole and your leaflet's position is "don't wanna" you know you fucked up.

•Copyright Prevents Abuse•

Understand the legal protections of something
before you go saying the whole mechanism is bad because capitalists have found loopholes

It means we have to end the capitalists as a class

It doesnt mean we have to give up our very real legal protections for our workers work

Copyright is what enables me to get money in full, or percentages from anything thats recorded of my original performances on any work ever

Please don't diss something that enables basic income

Without it, I wouldn't be able to get paid for commercial creative work once, or over time

Its ok to go completely creative commons - for work you decide

Right now, as a professional thats devoted most of my time and money to being able to make a living doing creative work, don't fk with my income

Surprise surprise 😱

"Google has been accused of breaking promises to patients, after the company announced it would be moving a healthcare-focused subsidiary, DeepMind Health, into the main arm of the organisation."

theguardian.com/technology/201 (via @jcbrand )

Reminder that patients did not even give consent to this data going to Google in the first place:

Google has no problem breaking privacy promises. They cannot be trusted.

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.
