…it’s just vaguely stupid.
Seriously, I know that now that I’m in my fifties I’m supposed to be overwhelmed by future shock, or whatever the term is. But this isn’t gonna do it. I understand perfectly what happened: some crystaljock jacked some data, sold it to a gonk via a fixer, and now this mediaposter thinks the gonk somehow owns the data and can get away with telling the corpos where to stuff it.
This is not hard. And, at that: it’s barely cyberpunk.
