I started waiting for VR tech in 1994 when my mom bought me the 'VR Madness' book from Sams Publishing. Oh how I tried to make the code work on my 486 Packard Bell (then later my 133mhz Gateway). While discouraged at the time I figured the future is right around the corner.. why not wait?

You know what, world? I am still waiting.

No Johnny Mnemonic come Shadowrun's Matrix navigation.. No Snowcrash-esque systems.. no VR controlled drones.. Nothing!

Sounds like chunks of themes ripped from the Fourth Realm series by John Twelve Hawks. Being off the grid is one thing, but also randomizing your choices helps another. Working with maps of CCTV to find alternative routes, and providing the double work of having 'usable' profiles to hide behind.

I knew all about making my own space vehicle back in 1985 when the docu-drama "Explorers" came out. An expert tale crafted by the 'Gremlins' director Joe Dante, and staring a young Ethan Hawke and River Phoenix. It explains how a dream of a circuit board can manifest into "ThunderRoad" and I can make smoochie faces at extra terrestrial life.

FEMA came in waving their ray guns, deploying their blackest of black ops, and flashing their cryptozoology psyops all around to cover up a surfacing of the lavamen/magmen from deep in the planet. Clearly they don't want private citizens getting footage of the government men trying to contain, understand, and quell the uprising.


Someone is unenthusiastic about your work.
