Hope you're having a good evening :) I'm currently working on a manuscript for a cyber thriller novel (correct me on the genre name if needed). Would you be so kind as to read the prologue and give some feedback?

What topic or issue have you been curious about lately?

If the effort you put into your work is an afterthought, your work will not be thought after.

If you want to read a news article because the headline makes you angry, save it for later reading. Decide in an hour or so if you still want to read it.

Here is the prologue for the manuscript I'm working on.

The title of the potential novel is:

Data Slave

You can read that prologue here: writing.bnolet.me/posts/2021/0

Any feedback is GREATLY appreciated. You can also send to linuxliaison@fastmail.com

Follow up: You don't need to feel guilty for choosing proprietary software.

If you prefer to use Spotify over local music because it better fits your listening style, go for it!

Should you look for more secure and privacy-respecting alternatives? Sure. But you don't need to develop a cognitive dissonance when it comes to what your preferences for software are.

Do what you're comfortable with, keep an open mind, and try things whenever you feel like something new.

You're not a bad person for liking things that are proprietary. You are not immoral for enjoying things that were made behind closed doors. You are not less of a person for having the desire for XYZ product from a premium company, regardless of whether they contribute to open source or not.

Facebook's full page ad was aimed at the folks on Wall Street, not the small businesses. The full page ad against Apple's antitrackers was worded in such a way to instill fear in the minds Facebook's investors...usually those with lobbying power in the tech field.

news website rant 

When your fucking news org website is so goddamn noisy that I can't fucking focus on your piece of shit excuse for journalism, just fuck off and close shop

CEO: I want to learn
VP: I want to learn
Manager: I want to learn
Team lead: I want to learn
