My earliest memories of computer games are this subway simulator Wolfpack by NovaLogic on DOS and Wolfenstein 3D. And I was born after the release of these games...

Thanks for Sharing! I didn't know them before.

yeah, i don't think it's as black and white as being able to rank the freedoms as far as tech goes.  there is so much spying on consumers that we're all equally fucked as far as privacy goes. 

There are things we can to do give ourselves a little edge on privacy, but even that isn't 100% secure at this point. 

And then you bring IoT into the picture, and you realize that so many are willing to give it up for basic convenience.

the soulseek channel seems to be growing, there's about 5 regulars with a vast vaporwave library. As Vaporwave is generally shared as "pay what you want" on bandcamp, it might even be legal to share vaporwave p2p. You're just getting it for free in a different way.

@ReQverb: I think in the US you are actually worse off, as the mayor tech companies are all us based and have built-in backdoors to their platforms. Gov agencies aren't afraid to use em either. Edward Snowden showed (among many other things) that having laws/rights doesn't matter so much for the day to day operations at the NSA. but yeah, on paper we in Europe are def worse off, as there now is a "democratically endorsed" pretext for furthering mass surveillance measures.

i wanted to get in on this so bad, especially after hearing about the afterparty.  sadly a career change has me locked down too far west to able to attend.  bummer

I'm glad this isn't something in the US yet, but with how things are going i wouldn't be surprised.  as someone working in the cybersecurity sector, i definitely have my eye on this :/
