Hi, I'm Dylan
My fav thing about tumblr is the complete lack of country music it makes me feel like this is where I should be
I can’t remember the name of the TED talk but the topic was how criminal organizations were embracing technology to the point where Mexican drug empires would make their own cellular phone networks, and terrorists in Mumbai would be using a phone with a foreign SIM card to receive commands from their handlers in Pakistan who were running a server to monitor police and military response.
I watched that in the fall semester of 2013.
Now we have a video game (WATCH_DOGS) where you play an American cyber-terrorist who can have a pistol in the right hand and a phone in the left hand.
Yes I did play this game, but I didn’t realize at the time what kind of a message this game could invoke (the message of “technology is a criminal’s best friend). And now that I have a better understanding of the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, I can make a more educated decision about what I choose to buy.
So now I’m going to boycott it
People who have a superiority complex based on their enjoyment of vintage music or books are some of the most annoying people in the world and if I ever hear you ridiculing someone just because they may not enjoy listening to the beatles whilst reading to kill a mockingbird and sipping a cup of hibiscus green tea i will literally come to your house and staple your nipples to your elbows
