TOTW: How do you use your cyberspace?
It's no surprise that anarchists would reject the internet entirely as being used for liberatory purposes. After all, it started out as ARPANET by the military, with the obvious intent of further dominating their territory as well as U.S. controlled locations abroad abroad. This ended up working perfectly as a business model as well in late capitalism, with the internet becoming a giant data collection scheme.
However, many caught on to how easily they could subvert these purposes for distributing free entertainment, encrypt their communications, and find even crazier outlets for counter-cultural activities. Part of the reason I use the internet is that it allows me to avoid cable television, with the constant flux of ads and ridiculous propaganda. This is not to say that it hasn't caused problems for me. To me, the internet has largely been an experiment with how I would like to better interact with it.
How has the internet aided your desire to be free of authority? Has it aided you in this purpose? How have you changed your internet habits to suite this purpose?
