@lyliawisteria that's very sweet thanks
@Drew you're welcome 😤
Unions 🤝 are a great place to find 🔎 people fighting 👊 against socialism ☭ . You cannot 🙅♂️ get more capitalistic 💵 than people pooling their resources ( their labor ⛏ , and skills 🤓) to increase 📈 their negotiation 🧐 power and build up 🚧 the middle class. Where socialism 😈 advocates a massive lower class working 👷♂️ while select elites IE politicians 🤵 live in luxury 💎.

Hello fellow elite hackers!
(Or as we say in the underground, l33t hax0rz)
As DEF CON wraps up and the weekend comes to a close, we return to our homes to rest, smoke some meats, and prepare for the week to come. All while basking in the memories we created together with dreams of the future we will create.
The greatest aspect about DEF CON is that each of us has a vastly unique experience, due to the massiveness of the conference itself and the opportunities for adventure that the surrounding area has to offer. Some may never leave the casino floors except to attend a few notable talks, other are there only to prove their skills to be crowned champion of the greatest CTF competition in world, while a few like myself will spend their time in the desert hunting the most dangerous game.
By far, one my favorite parts of DEF CON this year was the Biohacking Village, though I maybe slightly bias since we were there testing out and showing off our awesome new tech, Nano Drops. For those of you that haven’t heard, Nano Drops is a test product from Facebook that uses ground breaking nanotechnology to bridge the gap between water molecules and social media. Amazing stuff!
We were able to produce some outstanding test data at this years DEF CON, by deploying Nano Drops in the water supplies of Vegas. I must say, the feedback from all of you was impressive! It showed us that with a large enough Nano Drop deployment, we no longer need to rely on likes, status updates, and text input for data points. Even more amazing, when we compared the data gathered from the Nano Drops to conversations and status updates, it showed us that what citizen users truly feel and think often greatly differs from what they are willingly share and how they present themselves on social media. No more holding back, guys!
I know some of you may have concerns about us sharing your data with third-parties, but trust us. Our track records should be more than enough to show that your secrets are safe with us. Also, as a special thanks to everyone one that took part in this test deployment, you will be credited Libra for your participation. Minus materials and labor costs.
Another small thing to note, if you’re feeling headaches, tension in your arms, and brief loss of vision, don’t worry! It should go away in 6 to 8 weeks.
See you at next years DEF CON, l33t hax0rz! And remember, HACK THE PLANET! And 71% of the planet is water!
Thinking of fond moments with computers that are now considered nostalgic, wondering what was thought of at the time?
Don't really think at the time, "Gonna boot this up one early ass morning when can't sleep and remember these as the good-ol days."
No, just thought, hey good to go over friend's house to play this game, or going into these chat rooms.
Then thought is this now a time like that? Will now be wistfully looked back upon?
Don't really look back upon too recent tech in that way. Is there a cycle to this? Has it just not been that long? Or is it an age thing, were those older ones from the time that those feelings are developed and any later tech are thenceforth at ages that one can no longer form bonds with?
Is it generational? Can tech be so ubiquitous that it can't be novel, those that are "digital natives" not going to remember the iPad they grew up with their parents having them play on?
Tech can be crap, so scary to think today's tech that is thought of with cynicism could ever be remembered with happiness.
But do think things now like the fediverse may just be looked back upon with the same kind of warm contentment.
So looking around here right now, thinking some day may spin up an instance "like the good-ol days" and connect to the fedi, to remember all you weird, kind Internet folk who made nice memories for Ed.
