I'm so thrilled! I spent a couple of weeks extracting the data from dozens of CDs and DVDs I've burned over the past two decades.
On one of them I found my old website, with essays, fanfictions, artworks, recordings, and game PDFs I made in the aughts, which I had thought to be lost forever.
Here is one such. It's a poem I wrote based on Jabberwocky, about trying to build a computer around a terrible motherboard.
"...progressives “saw [COVID] coming” through the lens of public health funding being slashed dangerously. Ethnonationalists “saw it coming” through the lens of dangerous dependence on China and globalized production. Singularitarians “saw it coming” through the lens of a generic existential-risk fetishism. The religious right “saw it coming” through the lens of verses in Revelations. Hollywood “saw it coming” through the lens of the “competent man” narrative archetype."
