I’m glad meritocratic Capitalism is doing something completely normal again.

@denikombucha happened to me on an american airlines flight out of LAX

they did NOT let me opt out during boarding.

some context:


@ElectricAsherah @denikombucha

It is not unusual in a lot of countries (finger print AND photo in Argentina always skeeves me out); it's the fact that this was introduced w/o any commotion that gets to me

There was a period after the prism scandal where it seemed like no new surveillance would escape major press coverage and attention

@ElectricAsherah @denikombucha

Encountering the photo scanner at the airport made me realize how much media coverage is only about 45 now and stuff like this is just humming along quietly in the background

@denikombucha get used to it because it's going to be the norm.... :(


I’m just gonna hitch a ride in a basket 🧺 tied to 50000 helium balloons like the old man in “Up”

@denikombucha from existing holdings??? I know this shouldn't surprise me because we live in a surveillance state but yowza


The US is a premium dumpster fire but Privacy rights, tech monopolization, and mass surveillance is a global problem which needs to be confronted along side US Imperialism.
