If you are reading this, awesome! We are doing something together, you and I! Let’s do it! What are we doing? Sharing data on the internet, waking you brain to the realities of this new digital world, and hopefully motivating you to become a well informed citizen of it.
I am begrudgingly becoming a blogger to consolidate the randomness of information I sift and sail through daily, to attempt to make sense of it by taking the macro/historical view on data trends, and most importantly, to share it with you! Let’s start with some definitions.
“Information Overload” definition: the inability to fully appreciate any one piece of data due to the tidal waves and torrents of data that steal your attention, and make you forget the life changing data received only minutes ago.
Data – Definition:
1: factual information (as measurements or statistics) used as a basis for reasoning, discussion, or calculation <the data is plentiful and easily available — H. A. Gleason, Jr.>
2: information output by a sensing device or organ that includes both useful and irrelevant or redundant information and must be processed to be meaningful (read Facebook/Twitter/etc posts)
3: information in numerical form (binary being that can be digitally transmitted or processed (you are looking at it right now)
Data – Purpose: What should we do with data? Love it silly rabbit!
- Love data
- Data is essential
- Data must flow
- Data must be used
- Data is neither good nor bad
- There is no illegal data
- Data is free
- Data can not be owned
- No man, machine or system shall interrupt the flow of data (run Anonymous.DDoS.c)
- Locking data is a crime against datanity
- Love data http://datalove.me/
- Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
- Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.
- No one may be compelled to belong to an association.
Data Hater (aka datahata) – All those who would destroy/remove/stifle/silence the data (clear violation of article 19). Since data cannot be good nor evil, simply informative, why are there datahatas?
They FEAR Revolution! The world has radically changed as a direct result of the flow of data. Datahatas (aka governments) around the world, including our own beloved America, are trying to stifle the truth inherant in this data, which I find unacceptable.
Joe Sheeple inquires “Why would they do such a thing?“
Because it is in their best interest for the public to remain as uninformed as possible, placated and docile like sheep easily herded.
Sam says “Terrorists here, terrorists there, we need more money to save you from this weeks Al-Qaeda splinter faction related group. We also need to take away Constitutional guarantees to privacy and freedom from illegal search and seizure to catch terrorists. Just re-sign this Patriot Act, nobody will care.“
Only docile sheeple busy with American Idol, the Orlando Magic, McDonalds, Playboy, Fox News (or any propaganda based news, CNN, NBC, ABC, BBC, NPR, MSNBC), 20″ Rims, Diamonds, and Unemployment Lines would allow this gross stripping of our rights for the sake of personal safety.
By now we should all be familiar with Ben Franklin’s words:
“Those who would give up Essential Liberty
to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
And Patrick Henry’s moving words:
“For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”
“Is security so dear, or wealth so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!“
“You must be a conspiracy-theorist or nut-job right?” I’m neither democrat nor republican as I believe agreeing to be one consigns you to bend over for corporate sponsors. I do not bend. I was a Boy Scout, and I love my country and all the ideals it stands for. I beleive in our system of laws, however we all know that with enough money and friends in the right place, you can become above the law. (see TARP) I fully believe that capitalism is flawed in that it values wealth and greed over moral obligation.
Considering all elected federal officials got to Washington through ill-gotten corporate donations, they have indentured themselves to the machinations they are entrusted to regulate and punish. One does not bite the hand that feeds it. That the Supreme Court recently ruled to allow UNLIMITED corporate campaign donations in the 2012 election is a gross urination on our Constitution. Allowing collective bodies to fund our election process coupled with the flawed electoral college process ensures we will never see true change and we will always end up with puppets for representatives.
Which brings us back to, you guessed it, REVOLUTION! Since the whole fucking machine is a grid-locked, raped, enslaved, tracked, databased, lethargic, weapon of mass destruction, We the People call bullshit and shennanigans. You’re fired, all of yaz. You have tampered with our data, bad machine. You aren’t China yet, we won’t let a Great American Firewall be created. We will not allow you to claim democracy and love as your motivations while standing by and watching the people of Syria, Yemen, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Somalia, et al die at the hands of repressive leaders without a WORD of solidarity or support unless they are sitting on a mountain of oil you want. Your motivations are transparent, guess that was the transparency we were waiting for.
So exactly what are you waiting for?

- GET EDUCATED FAST, wake your sheeple ass up. I have provided plenty of data for your awakening pleasure, be it shiny beacons of hope on my YouTube channel, including a soundtrack for the Revolution, or a data-nugget buffet on my Twitter account where I follow all things data. Read up on Internet related legislation, as this will directly affect the flow of data, which is priority #1, help the data flow.
- Wake your neighbors, family, friends, then STRANGERS! Get off your couch, leave your domicile, and rejoin nature often.
- Go to a place where you can get the most attention possible, and set up a table and put on a show for the people. Draw them in with promises of a spectacle, hit them in the gut with truth. Be very well informed as fumbling on answers when questioned will frighten sheeple. They will flee to the nearest digital device and find alternate data to re-pacify themselves. Be sure to get the local news involved as they have absolutely nothing real to cover, in addition to uploading a YouTube video of your show.
What are you waiting for, is your TV still plugged in, apparently this message has not resonated with you? Share your data, share with me… comment please, it is your right!
Extemporaneous Update: 7/26/2011
I do not support violence of any type. Our world has evolved, we no longer need to club each other to impose our will. Let love be your guide, love thyself, love thy neighbor, and most importantly, love thy enemy. Please remember:
“And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (LOVE), I am nothing.” 1 Corinthians 13:2 King James (screw you Murdoch)
“the gift of prophecy”
The revolution is well underway. The largest unions organize strikes and the people are in the streets; the Elks Lodge #113, the Shriner’s, the veterans, the homeless (who were already there), even the lawyers, cougars, and soccer-moms! The Internet is down, cascading crashes grind it to a halt! The power is off, the Chinese did it! The riot police tell you to go home and shut up, and advance toward you. Open your arms to hug them. Tell them you love them, and you need their help. Look them in the eye. When they join your ranks and the military feels the ground swell beneath their feet, soldiers will appear. Unlike many countries around the world, I say to you, no American soldier will fire on a crowd of open-armed American citizens they have sworn to protect. So I ask you, what do you have to fear? (see video: Powerful message from former (C.I.A. Agent) to all Americans!)
“Oh there goes gravity“
Change? Change is scary. You all wanted it so badly, hell I even cried at one or two of Our President’s campaign videos, because I wanted it too and bought the bullshit for a minute. I don’t blame our President, he is powerless to enact change in a system that feeds itself by devouring public servants, I pity him. The Internet opened my eyes, labeled me “sheep” and I set about my awakening. After a few years of steady reading, I have come to the following conclusion:
90% of Americans I talk to above age 40 do not understand the first thing about a computer though they use the internet every time they swipe a credit card and are posting the GPS locations on Facebook every second of every day.
100% of those previously mentioned, when told the contents of this article, say “I have nothing to hide, so what do I care, Patriot Act guuuuud.” or “doesn’t affect me.”
After much argument, I convince them I am right. Unanimously they always say:
“What does it matter, there is nothing you can do about it” My father, a retired military man, said “they will kill you, they will set you up, and kill you.” My father served his country, and loves his country as I do, so this hurt me deeply.
Therefore I am compelled to spread this word, as I no longer wish to sit idly by, I want a revolution. A peaceful, knowledge and truth based referendum on our governments methodology and purpose. In fact several new amendments are in order to address the massive changes in society, namely the gross denial by lawmakers that the contents of the Internet should be protected and open, everywhere (Hi Baidu).
Our uploads are extensions of our voices and our THOUGHTS, which should remain private and only be shared in a way that is known by the sharer. Through the collective elevation of consciousness brought on by empty vessels sailing the seas of data, we the people of Earth have risen together, and revolution engulfs the Middle-East. Soon, there will come a time where no violence is necessary, only a vigorous discussion over the moral issues surrounding a subject or act, waged by each countries top minds.
The militaries of the world sense this, have known this. They will do whatever it takes to ensure their survival and necessity, through fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Read Slavespeak, know when you’re being bullshitted. Watch “V for Vendetta” True the history isn’t correct, but the message is! The FED is… I digress.
Don’t know a Muslim, meet one on twitter. They love and laugh and cry like I do. Hate Jews, talk to one online, debate your differences, and appreciate and learn from all he/she can share. Hate gay people, read their posts online and fill their shoes. When you’re done, you’ll be where I am. Love each other, and change our world now. Before you can no longer read this.
