"Cyberpunk's (...) class struggle, anti-establishment, anti-corporatism have been cheapened or sold off in favor of the neon, ersatz astro-turf we're fed by games like Cyberpunk 2077. Neofeud is a resounding rejection of the mortgaging of this philosophy in pursuit of profits."

*grumble* Too many of my digital TTRPG books are in PDF format. :( I don't like PDF format on my phone, which seems to be the only time I get to enjoy them these days.

If a book is well-written, I always find it too short. - Jane Austen

what my girlfriend thought dating a software engineer would be like: "honey, I got an AI robot maid to do all our cooking for us"

what dating a software engineer is actually like: "if that microwave connects to the internet we're heating all our food with a blowtorch from now on"

@xuv @ilumium @chbmeyer Worth saying that, due to the GDPR, they can't actually _collect_ this info without consent - my Zoe had been harrassing me on power-on for months begging me to let it share this data with goodness-knows-who, but I always refused. It appears to have stopped harrassing me after a service, I think they updated the firmware to remove the nags maybe.

Crazy: @chbmeyer says he asked #Renault what kind of personal data his car collects & shares with the company. #GDPR

"A third pillar of extremist thought we regularly find in Bitcoin circles is less specific to Bitcoin but more endemic in the digital world among cypherpunks, crypto-anarchists, and other advocates of nebulous digital causes like β€œinternet freedom.” This is the presumption that computer-based expertise trumps that of all other forms of expertise, sometimes because everything in the world is ultimately reducible to computational processes (a view sometimes known as computationalism; see Golumbia 2009). This computer-centric point of view is extremely common throughout digital culture, and it is especially notable in Bitcoin discussions. The implication is that this lack of technical expertise disqualifies the critic from speaking on the topic at all."
