most voting systems in the united states have been digitized though despite years and years of sounding infosec alarms they remain so hackable that we keep finding weird music files in their source code
we have turned the internet into one of the largest repositories of human knowledge and expression in history but we have also paywalled the shit out of it. people have been killed attempting to liberate this data while other artifacts have been barred from distribution entirely because our legal systems can't decide who should profit from the works of the dead
@garbados thought he committed suicide...
@devurandom tomato tomahto imo. he had been hounded, haunted, and intimidated by prosecutors for years at that point
@devurandom but then my take on suicide is that even if you kill yourself it can still be someone or something else that murdered you
@garbados I completely agree with this take. People generally don’t just take their life for no reason. It’s often the result of years of abuse that had been eating away at them.
