It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye.

Now what are the chances of that? Makes you think, don’t it?
I went over to a friend’s house yesterday evening, to pick up a few things for a project we’re working on. When I knocked the door, he called for me to come on in.
He was sitting in his living room, watching his large screen TV. It was showing a woodland scene, with a small […]
