Finding this a bit late. Been hanging out in the Tech section with Bitcoin.

This goes back to my post series in this thread that all this info collected by BIG TECH on us seems a bit creepy to me.

I've seen interviews of crazy types of people providing detail on how these big companies use data to pacify and influence the population for BIG trends that benefit themselves. Steering society in a direction that is not organic, shall we say. Full spectrum info to use as the BIGs see fit. Probably not in our long term interest but is so passive that no one really sees it or understands it's purpose.

So after searching for some type of written material, I found a book on the fringes of the subject. The book is in German, listed in the German Amazon and not on Kindle, making it more difficult for me to get my hands on and read and comment on.

This is an area of interest that not many people are particularly interested in or are the least bit aware of.

So when I say that I'll not be able to get working on that book report project for some time, it doesn't matter much because most normal people aren't the least bit interested.

Grief counselors are on standby is a joke. Joking to the idea that one might actually be emotionally effected by my not being able to follow through with a "more rational" explanation of the dangers of the BIGs.

Now in addition to that German book which speaks directly to the inception of all these BIGs, from DARPA, there are other books that speak to the genesis and design of all these systems. Other options that are not in German and written in a way that the reader can see the subject from a "more rational" perspective. Not full crazy.

Hi slang

Thank you for the follow up. I don't mind not getting the joke, I'm used to it after many decades experience. I appreciate your consideration in explaining it to me.

Many of my jokes are not really funny.

You're welcome, Sir.

Americans do not support a cashless world despite the smartest people in the world being in favor of it. But why?

A cashless world takes what little power the people have to bypass the power of banks and big government.

A cashless world will take away choices that one has now. Normal and legal choices. Banks and government will without question create trends through the fake news and questionable laws to make transactions that they don't approve of more expensive at first, then impossible in time.

It's nice to see that it's not just me that sees this.

Japanese are of a similar mindset.

Are you identifying yourself as solidly in the "all for it" or "ok with it" category or challenging the statistic?

Hard to believe that more than 1 outta 5 Kentuckians have a valid passport.

I guess the Louisville area might be driving the average.

I don't know anyone w/a passport.

26 states restrict or outright prohibit towns and cities from building their own broadband networks. Guess who wrote that legislation...

Pencil-ducking-tucky leading the way. There's no profit in rural broadband so let's make it illegal for towns to do it.

Just another driver for my counties -.61% growth rate and an average age of 47.8 years.
