In Defense of Our Good Name?

Updated : 01:47:03am, 14th Feb 2017

Frankly, it is of little surprise (and to a point a bearable burden) that much of what you do, say, look for and desire is captured, monitored and scrutinised with the aim of, essentially, marketing the world around you and the content that you're served (although the real reasons are generally far more totalitarian).

Your existence and your interests are nothing more than a row in a database; you are a numerical metric who's behavior and reliance on technology feeds the beast that serves you. Even the most vigilant and staunchly defiant resistors who aim to exist below the radar through Tor or various 'anonymising proxies' would be hard pushed to guarantee they'd never (at least willfully) submitted or contributed some sort of seed to the stockpile.

Masscanning the Internet

Updated : 13:48:56pm, 13th Mar 2016

This is a topic I've long considered discussing in public and whilst there are better examples, I found this an interesting watch... if not frustrating, for reasons of my own.

Long term, I might look to use this as a catalyst to upgrade this thread to a 'project' as there is far too much to focus on this element of interest in just a few paragraphs...

A classic example of my day when I have to deal with anybody outside of engineering :)

Merry New Year

Merry 2016; I've kicked it off with a new version of the design, tweaked and streamlined from v7.

At least starting in January, I have a clear benchmark of how long this one will last...
