Re: RIP Internet

Yeah, I want to make it clear that I don't actually believe this is "the end of the internet". However, if this goes through as planned, it will be the end of personal liberty and privacy in the EU with regards to internet usage. Whereas previously some ISPs/platforms chose to store your data (leavi...

RIP Internet

The EU's Article 13 has passed, and the greatest asset to human liberty has been seized by the European Commission, supported by your nominated representatives.

Re: Josh's Next Project

Duck: I don't feel that it was clear, hinted at maybe. (Definitely if you take into account the use of human body temp as power...) Neo sees the real world as code towards the end; he manages to stop machines in the real world; he travels between "the Matrix" and "the real world" without being plug...

Matrix's first movie is SciFi, the others could be either depending on your view. (if the "real world" was another layer of simulation then it's SciFi, not SciFa, as it was all in a computer)
