Cypherpunk Hammy Havoc’s take on privacy, open-source society, and true self-sustenance

Hammy Havoc is a multi-faceted cypherpunk writer based in Liverpool, United Kingdom. We had to have him tell us more about how he - and others - can practice what he preaches; cypherpunks are advocates for social and political change via strong cryptography and privacy-enhancing technologies. Cypherpunk principles tie in directly to his workflows as CEO of Split [...]

Pie Face Girls: Angry, Attentive, and Anti-HB2

We started off discussing Monsanto on slightly damp benches. Dani’s disdain for the company’s careless disruption of the natural flow of things quickly shifted into the group's deep appreciation for the deliciousness of ugly fruit, specifically blood oranges from earlier in the summertime. “GMO OMG.", she recommended, "It’s on Netflix.”. I ran into the Raleigh-based [...]

Alex Quirk invites you to explore memory and perception

"In Western thought, the conscious being is often divided into two parts: mind, and body. Senses, and thoughts. Perception, and memory. It seems every conscious thought is rooted in either instantaneous perception or recall. What, then, can be said about a person’s soul if one side of that duality is completely destroyed?" asks Alex Quirk.   [...]

Are you tired from your trip throughout North Carolina? “Well, it’s been like an unending trip for four or five months. I just have very little time in between trips, and I was just in Maryland.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be tweeted

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnJFhuOWgXg My coworker turned to me today and said, “Oh, no. The New York Times. Tamir Rice.” I wish I could say I was surprised at the results: no indictment in the case of a police officer who shot and killed unarmed/toy gun-armed/two-armed 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio about two seconds - no exaggeration, [...]
