@Shufei They have both blind trust and understanding of tech. Whenever I read anything about this I can't help but laugh.. nanomachines, AI, von neuman satellite, are you fucking kidding me, we can't even manufacture a bluetooth speaker that works consistently.
Their flying cars are gonna run on electron, their prosthetic limbs will randomly reboot, their embrace in technological know-how would be inspiring, if it wasn't so deluded.

I have come up with a way of transmitting encoded messages via crackle weaving. For n characters, you need 5*N + 1 total threads, and you can generate a small textile that should be:

- Tedious to decode even with a draft

capitalism effectively halts genuine invention by forcing all things to act as financial instruments first and foremost. what cannot profit, cannot exist; so public infrastructure like digital networks can only grow sideways by building bigger and bigger paywalls. volunteer efforts such as linux face a labor ceiling that capitalism can manipulate effortlessly: squeeze the worker, and they lose the bandwidth to volunteer; buy the worker, and you buy control of the project.
