OK a real post this time. Welcome to my little attempt to get back my time. I’m watching classic Doctor Who right now, the Robots of Death, one of my favorite serials. A crew all working together for money, wearing fabulous costumes as one does when one is working a mining ship on a sand planet, who don’t particularly like each other, everyone is sniping at each other like they’re in Falcon Crest, love it.
I am not sure what I’ll be talking about here. First I have to regain interest in life. I’m working on it!
I’ll be putting up links on the links page eventually. Blogs I find interesting, stuff like that. Remember when people did that? I’m going to do it again.
I’ll throw my photos up here too. I need to get them off my phone!
I used to think people no longer had that preoccupation of the 20th century scifi imagination: the fear of robots and that they would turn against us. But thinking about it, isn’t the fear of “data mining” and your info being stolen through algorithms and so on just a version of that? Instead of a metal man with glowing red eyes it’s a website that promises you fun and games but instead robs you electronically or a weirdo who gets the police to invade your house. But those are true things, unlike the metal man with red eyes.
