Like the lady who swallowed the fly, this techno-amiable public has a problem. There’s too much tech and not enough grown-up minds to handle it! Now we’re working hard to invent the spider, bird, cat and dog to catch those tech flies… It’s the drones that have done it! A new era hasn’t arrived with a bang but the need can’t be avoided and that’s pointing us down another road, what do we do with all this crap when it’s obsolete!?

We are setting ourselves up for a spectacular revolt. There’s a perfect storm of privacy and data and regulatory hijinx in the news right now.

There would be no flying children and no talking animals because it would be real – it would be the oppressive and bleak noir laid out by current events. The only recourse? Kill Switches; datacide.
