the year is 2015. the booming, neon-spackled metropolis of san secuestro continues to be the epicenter of the world's greatest technological advancements. home to the largest hardware and software giants alike, the politicians of capitol city look to san secuestro as the cradle of the country's future, as rich in ideas as it is in wealth. the politicians could do without the festering underbelly of san secuestro, however - a network of meddling hackers constantly disrupting the government's efforts to surveil and control the massive data pipes flowing from the city out to the rest of the globe. this is the tale of one of many such hackers, imprisoned by the Syndicate for raging against the machine in the name of online privacy and net neutrality. introducing neals...

my eyes - slowly rise from a shut state clearly an open and shut case imprisoned - by the Syndicate microchips implanted in my wrist i get branded mugshot scan it along with a handprint and the biometric tracking is mandit ory where my story begins just another prisoner whos making amends the cell doors open everyone exits their cells in a uniform motion but none of us move until the guard has spoken cause a broken jaw aint a pleasant notion "single file to the chow hall" and our cold titanium stalls become walls (door shutting) gravity shackles engage between my thin wrists and i shift my legs shuffle past the med ward where the med board is hard at work with their record sedate the inmates and make peace so strayed seeds and crazies one day cease to miscalibrate the state's needs by doing just whatever they pleased you gotta follow every law to the letter or find yourself in prison sitting with men who refuse doing better "a new privacy application is making waves in the news again after another wave of arrests have brought down at least 35 people in six states related to online privacy and neutrality" im fresh to my conclique - a conclave of convicts who wronged this system devoid of all conflict upon which speaking out gets you jailed with a promptness speech is a crime defined by the law now incorrect speech incarcerate long now used to be the way to the convey your freedom now its just a way to display your demons fuck police beat fellow citizens up on the streets the ones they swore to protect from elites but now fight their battles with batons and beat anyone who doesnt conform to the "norm" established by the branches of a government born from a document draft that ensured our survival but instead it destroyed all our rights to rival because the corrupt found a way to stop it no one pure of soul finds their way into politics so all this voting is represented by representatives who were bad to begin with then the promise of money became true every vulture took a piece of the loot now all the people at the bottom they got nothing to do except watch as their world slowly fades to blue ...but it wasnt always like this

liquid crystals beaming brands against a skyline scraped by buildings and a strand of sand moistened by the gentle hand of the waves that slowly cleanse the land of sins forgotten some say this place is rotten but its the only home that ive ever known basked in washed out neon tones structures of stone shall mask the unknown graphite colored streets gridded neatly edged by walls of grease and graffiti plots of land where the palm trees sway next to the alleyways in decay reflected screens in serene puddles disturbed by trucks exiting tunnels splashing pedestrians of the evening my city stay living and breathing san secuestro - where the dregs and best go to seek fortunes in escrow most rob, cheat, and steal for their nest though the rest process the echo (echo) i process the system - the network propagating data for hire - a true expert corporate interests keep the lights on coding up the dirt in python well its another balmy evening in san secuestro - 78 degrees with another light drizzle expected early tomorrow morning. in business news, the five major telecom carriers have successfully petitioned for their merger, electing to go under the name "The Syndicate." the CEO of the newly formed entity, nice guiman, has personally ensured his company's pledge to unregulated and unrestricted internet, even though his company now has an effective monopoly, controlling over 85% of wired and wireless communications in the country. one can only hope that the hard-fought battle for this merger, which required extensive lobbying by multiple communications and special interest groups, will not adversely affect the average consumer in pricing and usage. heres brandon with sports: beneath this silicon paradise is an underground that we founded on rights cryptographic ciphertexts and undernets in this wild wild west keeping the faucet of information unobstructed by most complications swapping source code data methods keeping our trade extra protected while this city sleeps we defend every bit of these bits that we send behind benign hosting we run blind anonymous VPNs and cold lines hitpaths tumbled reassembled shot back through our data temples catastrophe is not coming, its here san secuestro - the point of the spear welcome to san secuestro

slow wailing of the sirens in the distance i gather the courage to gather my things the clocks ticking grab a backpack see what will fit in cuz im sitting on a bunch of dirty shit and i cant flush it main tractop clamshelled grab a few gs and usb keys from the spam well swiftly picking through the inventory in my fifth story apartment building at five in the morning beat it down the wet metal stairs of this rickety fire escape with my bag full of warez make my hi tops skywalk and i land on the sidewalk glance over my shoulder as i sprint to the station and i dont have a clue which agency might be chasing me i just hit the road when i thought they were tracing me logging packets from an unknown source now im running through this obstacle course signature whipping of helicopter blades spinning quickly close on my location the information is good probably pass on paranoia or just call it coincidence but this incident in particular got me feeling different cause its obvious pursuit is in play - every noise i hear converging on me trying to conclude my day a spotlight from the heavens confirming this is a raid and these agents of the state are trying to take me away "halt - sir! stop where you are dont even try resisting you wont get very far please yield in your tracks dont make it worse than it already is kneel and put your hands on your head!" i could listen - or i could race more intensely is my stamina sufficient? can my lawyers defend me? i dont even know to what extent the charges might be but they gotta be signficant they sent in the calvary im dashing fast - while im weighing these options either way that i decide i must proceed with some caution because often people in my place catch a bullet from a trigger happy cop whos just itching to pull it and i aint got an armory no glory in dying luckily not up for murder so no need to be hiding how many years are even possible for popping my crimewave? im just another villain with a pulse and a sine wave stop moving - lock my hands to my neck drop my bag to my side let my shins hit the deck resigned to my fate guess i will face the music reflecting on my past and then how to get through this wondering who couldve been judas - i was careful enough now im totally surrounded and im put into cuffs shoved in back of a black suburban my future nebulous and uncertain uncertain

good evening everyone, and welcome to channel 23 KSEC news, i'm skip turner. the CEO of technology congomerate The Syndicate has decided to abdicate his freshly-acquired throne in favor of pursuing a new career in Capitol City. the president announced her intentions earlier today to appoint Nice Guiman as head of the Federal Bureau of Telecommunications. "Mister Guiman has absolutely unmatched experience in the telecommunications industry. It is my firm belief that he has exactly the skillset and knowledge required to modernize our government for the challenges we face in the 21st century." san secuestro executives are thrilled with the prospect of a technocracy emerging after such a long period of seemingly incompetent government. no mention has been made of Mister Guiman's successor as of yet. next up, sleepless in san secuestro! the number of people finding their perfect match on online dating sites is rapidly rising, while enterprising young men and women gear up their profiles in order to attract prospective mates. big data and your love life, after this...

neals, his nefarious past now over a year behind him, moves in with his girlfriend. they quickly settle into a rather ordinary existence, working monotonous, white-collar jobs at local technology firms. the Syndicate, however, has continued to expand its influence. by working symbiotically with the Federal Bureau of Telecommunications, a windfall of acquisitions, mergers, new legislation, and favorable court rulings have made the Syndicate the largest and most powerful company in the world.

my home seems quiet - too quiet an eerie stillness grips the walls check my phone - nope no missed calls my girlfriend sound asleep and shes sprawled out - across the bed in full spread lean over and kiss her forehead slowly rise and tiptoe on to the kitchen to eat some leftover chicken intuition signal a feeling something the universe is concealing but i dont have a reason to feel this anxious so just calm down neals youve been out the game - living boring and they cant bust you if you aint scoring take a deep breath - take it easy hit the couch and watch some tv senator paul ronald was pressured by his party to resign today after evidence acquired in a sweeping online sting operation revealed his ties to a slew of violent feminist organizations. senator ronald was the most vocal opponent to last year's telecom merger that formed the Syndicate, leaving some critics to posit that his ouster was simply part of a vengeful political witch hunt. documents provided by the Federal Bureau of Telecommunications detail how the newly streamlined process for law enforcement to make electronic surveillance requests has greatly boosted efficiency. not my circus - not my monkeys not my problem - just the countrys so what if the politicians got bump keys on all these other companies? citizens who obey the law dont get spied on - not at all so my fears irrational all hail corporate national who cares what you buy when youre online shopping? what about the porn that youre watching? what about the girls that youre stalking behind your girlfriends back - is that shocking? cell phone tracks the places youre walking in all that fly ass gear that youre rocking no one will possibly use that data against you sometime later at least thats how i feel now, ive changed spent too long going against the grain aint no reason to fight the man got a good life and i cant complain waters heated food is tasty got this couch on sale at macys lease a brand new black mercedes blasting beats from the 1980s ignorance is bliss indeed and the old me'd probably intercede but the prospect of losing all that ive gained taught me to shut up and stay in my lane leave the sofa - wash my dishes replace plate and flip the switches walk in bedroom - lift the sheets close my eyelids - back to sleep in an effort to make the government's surveillance of the internet easier, the Syndicate has amended their terms of service today to refuse routing of any type of encrypted traffic on their ubiquitous backbone, except for a handful of authorized companies who have been preapproved by the Federal Bureau of Telecommunications. other companies who wish to apply for the exemption may do so on the FBTs website after filling out a few simple forms and paying a non-refundable processing fee of $2000. net neutrality and privacy advocates are up in arms about the changes, announcing their intention to file lawsuits attempting to block the new proposal.

home from work to an open front door belongings scattered all along the floor did i get robbed? better check whats gone the drawers pulled out televisions on chairs tipped over and tables flipped the lamps broken and the couch is ripped knick knacks once stacked sit strewn along the tile and files collect in messy piles see a single sheet of paper with a emblem amongst the bedlam on the door to my bedroom looks official - notarized i surmise this letter comes from "the good guys" but why? i aint done dirt in months i gave the game away to keep these stunts away from me away from her away from us thought my past was ash and dust read it closer it seems contention isnt with me - not even mentioned it seems my girls been being sneaky downloading new episodes of shows weekly from channels that we dont pay for so now the FBT came and shut her down but prison time and jail for some shows? seems farfetched but thats how it goes who hasnt downloaded a photo? an album? anime from kyoto? that you shouldnt have - games apps up for grabs on the internet zips tars rars and cabs does it even feel like stealin when youre only two clicks away from straight peeling anything your heart desires any format through these wires and right past your doormat? i must admit its a bit impersonal to receive or transmit the human beings behind the screens dehumanized by these new machines naked celebrities for the taking pilfered by dubious means for news making or an artists brand new creation stolen and get no compensation wheres the line drawn? bad intentions? when you share those files on high speed connections? when you target innocent users by stealing files off their home computers? what about cracking corporations or infiltrating uplinked nations? dont have to argue whats legal but not all crimes created equal scattered on the floor papers disks and drawers all of the things notes up on the door government at war pulling the strings a brave new world where every action shared amongst those control whats happening arbitrarily enforce the rules armed with the best surveillance tools and you cant catch terrorists or kill tyrants just drug busts and software pirates seems like a waste of the greatest net cast over the oceans deepest depths cuz in this game cant tell combatants from all the civilians in private practice easy to frame control or contain with the narrative beaming to your brain through fear uncertainty its no doubt why we need protections rolled out or so says the powers that be profusely convinced every criminal fierce as bruce lee truth is everyone has potential to be subversive, crack and go mental so they keep all that data central and say its safety essential some see this hypocrisy and do nothing slacktivists move wrists and click buttons get behind a cause to change the laws but dont have all the brains or half the balls some soldiers who sit behind the walls of prison risked their lives for vision sacrificed themselves in position to fight this inquisition but the casualties of guilt admission are never to be forgiven and casualties like my girl in contrition still a welcome addition

as long as we stick with it keep taking our licks with it and we remain quick witted somehow well make it through as long as we dont back down when we get tossed around we will always rebound somehow well make it through love is not the fairest of prospects and every event that might render some context is complex but its all part of the process my goddess the world is far from lawless and though i should be rotting away bottled up from a battle i fought yesterday mistakes were made sure - gotta look to the end i got a second chance to make it right again and i cant change the choices i made in the past by being boisterous and i cant change decisions i meekly made that deserve derision and with a different turn of events i might have never met you had no way to repent i wouldnt be sitting up on this end of the phone trying to figure out a game plan - a way to atone as long as we stick with it keep taking our licks with it and we remain quick witted somehow well make it through as long as we dont back down when we get tossed around we will always rebound somehow well make it through im reminded of our first excursion i couldve been considered a virgin all things considered i hadnt learned the difference since my interests all fell within business now that same business returns with a purpose to break deep beneath the surface and yea it really makes me nervous former hermit turned out civil service smart, clever, down for whatever always on a mission to change for the better i have you to thank for that and im grateful now its my turn to be the guardian angel i will orchestrate the conditions so some might have another chance at going the distance and if they barter a martyr let em see just how we operate when we got the armor

good evening everyone, and welcome again to channel 23 KSEC news, i'm skip turner. a local hacker, fed up with the current state of the internet, has released a multi-platform application to create a sizable encrypted mesh network using all types of electronic devices. upon running the application, mobile phones, tablets, routers, laptops, televisions, and even some household smart appliances like toasters and refrigerators are turned into peer-to-peer nodes for the network, wirelessly broadcasting and receiving data from any other connected gadgets within range. the developer, known only as "neals", began distributing the application along with its source code to san secuestro locals yesterday. according to the available network statistics, the app has been installed on at least a quarter million devices already. government officials have commented that this type of privacy application violates federal law by subverting the current ban on unlicensed encrypted traffic. "this application is clearly designed to make our job of protecting the people of this great nation more difficult, possibly subjecting our precious children to everything from anonymous cyberbullying to heinous acts of terrorism. circumvention of these laws is itself an act of terrorism, and we will prosecute whoever is responsible for designing and distributing this application to the fullest extent of the law." anyone with information regarding this case is advised to contact the local Federal Bureau of Telecommunications field office.

holed up in this dingy makeshift apartment in the basement of the barcade in the darkness cabling is running off in every direction and a rack of electronics manage every connection lights blinking computers thinking im tinkering living like the archetypal internet kingpin traffic on the scanners been shallow so im a shadow and i gotta get my weapons ready prep em for battle load em with ammo get em dangerous payloads with my codes worms viruses i get em contagious and i fill em like a danish with the sweetness fingers on the keyboard typing showing my leetness i can beat this behemoth of a system with ease if i put one of my programs on their directories should be a breeze when i break in cooking the bacon no mistaking neals no longer forsaken hit em with a system failed attacking their system while im out of jail show them a banana for scale and get em slipping on the peel when theyre hot on my trail see me hitting every open port cuz im banging on their system while im staying out of the court collecting all their data for sport so that i can build the world a report run that mainframe administrator game plan im gonna play a game of numbers like im rain man slaying every agent rocking suits and ray bans staying all up in the darkness like a spray tan once i penetrate perimeters work my way up through the system begin turning up the temperatures from agents to the senators i copy their expenditures im targeting the Syndicate and targeting their messengers then expose unequivocally this not the little league this be on that 1930s italy - no accountability and there can be no counting on civility so those of us that care must make it our responsibility to disrupt delete destroy readily while your boy neals is sounding the reveille and if i ever wind up paying the penalty im proud of every one of my felonies

so here i am another freedom fighter behind the bars i guess i had it coming so you all can hold your applause stood for a cause and i executed everything perfect yes it was worth it cause my program went and fulfilled its purpose i went and put it in the public domain and now the next generation of hackers can all know my name and they can build on what i created and make it their own and maybe modify the code so that it works with a drone im here alone in my cell trying to pass the time faster trying to figure a way out of this here blasted disaster my lawyer is incompetent my judge is a moron ex girlfriends on the outside probably getting her score on see a snitch is always someone who is close to your brain so sometimes it can be better to just stay in your lane but you know how good she was at playing all of those games so again i had it coming i belong in these chains recent events probably couldve been prevented if enough people stood up to the Syndicate forget it but monopolies became common place every city every state because they wanted lower rates and the politicians lined their pockets passing the laws that made it possible for Syndicates to sink in their claws and they wont bite the hand that feeds them cuz the dollars important they need it for those little signs on lawns with cute little portraits hail corporate i wont see those guys in this jail because every single one of them has golfed with the mayor its not what you know its who you know and who you pay off and when your bottom line is hurting its just who you lay off san secuestro aint no different its just one of the millions where the rules play a bit different for us lowly civilians but resigning to conclusions like that hurt the morale let me spit a little bit of rationale wasted intelligence probably the worst thing ever done with human development either not using it or using it for dubious tasks or you go and dumb it down you go and put on a mask a disservice to your ancestors who held down the past so that you could be on earth here and now having a blast so cop a trade get a hobby try and master a craft because the world always need experts in the scientist caste even though my craft might have got me detained i can make an impact going against the grain and that might be the way you make your mark on the planet because you just might do things different and they wont understand it but authority is malleable so is convention if you dont question what is going on this dimension you might find yourself in my shoes for a lesser offense because they made it ALL illegal on a stupid pretense so question everything - dont accept things out of tradition the only limitation that you have is your own ambition and if you want to change your world you have to actually act theres no like button to click to make a real life impact knowledge and wisdom are the greatest weapons people can wield the computer and the internets your sword and your shield so protect em with ferocity and dont allow my prophecy to ever reach completion cause it would be an atrocity thats all the story that i got for you now i really thank you all for listening and youve been a great crowd i should probably start my cases appeal or at the very least decide what i want for my last meal i will probably be here lounging about so if you wanna hear my story again just give a shout flip the cassette over start spinning the wheels to replay introducing neals

about

www.introducingneals.com

the year is 2015.

the booming, neon-spackled metropolis of san secuestro continues to be the epicenter of the world's greatest technological advancements. home to the largest hardware and software giants alike, the politicians of capitol city look to san secuestro as the cradle of the country's future, as rich in ideas as it is in wealth.

the politicians could do without the festering underbelly of san secuestro, however - a network of meddling hackers constantly disrupting the government's efforts to surveil and control the massive data pipes flowing from the city out to the rest of the globe.

this is the tale of one of many such hackers, imprisoned by the Syndicate for raging against the machine in the name of online privacy and net neutrality.
