i shut up when i can't be smart often that, people think i'm an introvert...i like to think so too.

that awkward moment when two user avatars look so similar that you often interact with the not fun person more than you like to.

Cory Docotorow's "Unauthorized Bread" is a dark but hopeful near-future story about a POC woman and her kid who work to liberate their neighbors from poverty by hacking their DRM-infected kitchen appliances. It's lovely, and from a future that feels inevitable.
