Well as someone from infosec said of the EDT in the New York Times..
*well if is not illegal, it certainly is immoral.*
as far as infowar_ecologies are concerned any network that offers
any alternative to neo-liberalism is marked for dissapereance.
That is why we among alternative networks we must constantly
move in high decentralized zones and actions.
As well as develop as soon as possible independent
ISPs, as well as alternative modes network infrastructures...
similar to the Internet 2...a series of sub_nets...with a kinship
to projects like name.space, the thing, tao..etc...but that are
nolonger directly part of the dominant networks and routers.
anyway...hectic thoughts on a hectic day..
end the end we are all being gather into the same boxcart
and being sent to the same dark drop off point...it will
not matter to the InfoSec gangs how
we define ourselves as hacktivist and beyond..
over and out,
