Fresh update on "cory" discussed on Game Theory Podcast
"I think I would better call in those game Sam. Oh, it's the best. It's so great, play by people talk about the greatest duo of all time and they talk about Shaq and Kobe and burden Mikhail, but you know what? Lamelo and Eric Collins is the greatest paired NBA duo ever. A player that exciting with a play by play guy that excitable? What's better? It rules. It rules. So. I just worry about where the defense comes from. I think they probably make the planes. I'm just like, okay, I need to see a little bit more from them. And the last team here is the wizards. I mean, you covered the wizards last year. I'll just kind of see the floor to you after this opening salvo. What worries me most about the wizards is that this team played at a very high pace last year with Russell Westbrook and Russ, I think created a ton of offense for them in transition in part because they needed him to do to the lack of floor spacing and shooting. I don't think that that really changed overnight. They did bring in a couple of much better shooters and kentavious Caldwell Pope and Cory kispert, who theoretically should be like either in the case of KCP fully in the rotation or Corey kissberg, like near the end of the actual rotation. I still just don't know if I trust this team's floor spacing around Bradley Beal enough, especially given that they're probably going to play more half court possessions this year. I think that's fair. I think the reason for optimism for them would be just their quantity. In a season or I should say in a season where they are as a second consecutive off season that's just ridiculously short, they lost a month off of this off season. There was basically no off season the previous year. You know, we talked so much this past season about there being so many injuries because of the short off season. Well, this is a second one. And I have to imagine that teams are going to be banged up similarly to how they were last year..
Cory Mills Evacuated Afghan Family, Biden Admin Wants All the Credit
"Don't know if you heard this story. He was largely responsible for getting this. These four Americans, his mother and her three Children out of Afghanistan. So Corey males must have been genuinely stunned when he read this story in the Washington Examiner and elsewhere this weekend. About how the US evacuated four Americans overland to a third country. Corey is probably like they did. Your emails like they didn't have anything to do with this. How disgusting of an administration do you have to be? Think about this for a second try to process it. To not only abandoned our people behind the Americans. But when you abandon our people and people like Cory males, former military guy heroically tries to save these people does everything he can to do it. He then gets these four people out of the country. The State Department blocks him. How do you think it makes Corey Meal Mills feel when he reads in the newspaper and other news outlets. That the United States evacuated from for bitch totally made up. Here. Fox News. State Department trying to steal credit for rescue of four Americans from Afghanistan organizer says it's a total lie. The statement of woman's name was Miriam and her family. Hear from the Fox news piece. Peter Hassan Houston Keen The State Department's public posture about Merriam's rescues, quote absolute nonsense core emails told Fox. The fact that they're spitting this trying to take 100% credit when they didn't track this family when they placated this family when the mother who was under extreme stress and extreme pressure, reached out to the State Department multiple times and got no help. Let me say that again and got no help. And the Biden administration. He's
Olympic Runner Cory McGee On Performance Ruts and Getting Through Them
"Did share in post after the olympics. You share that. If you had told corey mcgee. Three years ago that she'd be an olympian that that corey would not have believed you. I wanted to talk about that a bit more. Because you said that you sort of loss yourself lost hope during that time. Can you tell us a little bit more about that when you look back on that time. About what life looked like and and how you got past it definitely. I mean it. It was i definitely went through a rut for a few years and it was mostly associated with performance. Not like i wasn't happy in my life but i was going through a few years of just like stagnant performance and I think that that is pretty normal. I wouldn't say that that's something that i hadn't gone through before but really not to this degree and so to kind of go from running in college and races were sort of Consistent in the sense that i felt really good when i arrive at the sec championship. I felt really good competing in ncaa's but then of course you get to the next level. And it's so competitive. And i always have had a confidence in my competitiveness in my performance. But you just don't win as many races at the pro level. And i was i. I'm okay with that. I can wrap my head around that reality. But my times weren't improving and often the thing that i think as runners we can kind of derive excitement from and sort of uses. A measure of course is not just winning but seeing yourself improved In your times. And so i think i had four years in boston where the third year actually was pretty good but i- sustained an injury in my sacred and and it knocked me back again and so i think i sort of figured out how to make it work but then had this injury and then i gave it another year to say okay. Well if the pieces come together then this is where. I'm gonna stay and continue to train but then i went to the us championship the next year. And i was the first one out of the final. And i wouldn't say that i had this is thought of like i'm not happy. I'm not improving. But i just wasn't expecting as much out of myself so had sort of just adapted to the fact that i i had a lower standard for my own self and i think that the reason why being from a small town where running wasn't very popular and then finding my way to school with a great track team and then eventually of course running for new balance was because i've always been my own biggest like my own biggest believer And i think you kind of have to have that within yourself and not saying if you talk about it or you put it out there. But you just kind of have this innate deep

They're going to say it's because the racist filibuster rules in place the racist filibuster that was used by Obama and Cory Booker and others. Hardly white supremacy crowd, no doubt about it. Rather than get rid of the filibuster. Alia different idea. Why don't we get rid of the Democrat Party since it's the Democrat Party?

No pun intended to autonomous travel for individuals with disabilities today. We're going to learn a little bit more about them and about the technology that they're working on nicholas richard welcome to the show. Thanks for having us fish you guys. I'm really excited to kind of talk about this technology and how it can really help folks but before we do that. Could you tell our listeners. A little bit about yourselves yes sure. We're from the vami lab at the university main. This is laboratory that's focusing on human technology. Interfaces we've been in existence for twelve or thirteen years now nick nyerere been collaborative partners on this for that time and we almost jokingly say that we have this academic marriage but Yeah we were studying the way in which humans interface with the technology in front of us and we do a lot of work into way. Finding especially blind visually impaired assisted technology. Been doing a lot of work into virtual and augmented reality and how to use some of that technology to assist with you know even simple tasks like writing a bike for example in the fog. Yeah we've also started to move into biotechnology as well as a little background so we bring kind of an interesting background to our studies. My background is experimental. Psychology and rick has a background in lots of things including interactive design and collaboration. And so we're really interested in and we're in kind of a computer science department broadly defined. So we're really interested in saying. Well how can we take. Knowledge of human understanding human interactions and lead to better technology and information access and so we tell them very strongly from the human side and also from our own first person experiences. I'm congenitally blind. And so i bring a lot of my own phenomenology of my own. Use of technology frustation frustrations with technology frustrations with information access into the types of things that we designed to be multi sensory you mentioned bio inspired designs. How can we make technology be more like how our brain works using all of our senses instead of just visual design.

"It's partially character development and storytelling that way and then partially just kind of rich descriptions and then oppressors. Nothing like having a war or a fight to show off your technology. Right right hey. We got volcano weapons. Kid let me show you how that works and also a lesson in plate tectonics nine. Wow sorry go ahead. Ken one of the things that i think what you are common brought to mind is also the idea reader empowerment. I think influence can be actually lately. Empowered the reader into into the story. Like one of the things. I really enjoy doing with my books. And also i see it and other people's folks is idea that The author takes some time to teach the reader some very basic things about the technology. So that later on the reader can then out for themselves implications of combining things and doing things and making unanticipated sorta consequences so that the reader feels like they are. They're solving the problem and working out almost as you're telling them what the solution is. I think that's like a beautiful moment. That seifi can really do which is really awesome. If you do the info dumping right early on. And i love that in your work corey by the way like i think one of the things. That is so interesting about the way you deal with technology is. There's an element of what kim was talking about this competence Which of course we all love but then there's also people who are misusing a technology and we're not using it in the way they're that they're told to and that to me is always the best kind of info dump because it's like oh you'd think it's this actually we're using it for this other thing and let tell you how that works. And that's that again appeals. To the reader empowers the reader to think about technology as something they can appropriate for themselves. It's a very good sony and move. You know the street finding its own used for things. So at at last night's event On cyberpunk post cyberpunk bruce sterling said that The thing about fiction about the climate that's different from cyberpunk is cyberpunk is all about people. Having agency in a in a world gone wrong and climate fiction is often about figuring out what to do when you can't change the world when when you have no especially individual agency and you have to find big groups of people to embark on remediation programs. You look skeptical. Emily i guess i don't i i. I'm always skeptical. While this john ras about by in this john reservoir fucked or whatever you know. It's like they're both. I mean there's plenty of people in in classic cyberpunk courses deprived of their rights and have to band together with rogue is and other groups to make a difference i Speaking of infamous. I had a revelation last year. I was teaching at a writing program. And i had a student. Ask how w-. I've been told not to put info san not you said book azam's and all these other rules writing and yet i find them in fiction. I enjoy including some of your fiction. How do you do them right. And i had this realization. I flashed to speaking of technology and science fiction. Mudge zakho from the dead cow. Who after cdc went to work for the nsa making spy tools for the tailored access operations group and. He told me that they would get these phone. Call saying we will have access to this embassy tomorrow night and we need to find a a device that's vulnerable and we need to infect while we were there and these the eleven devices are there..

"They don't take away each other if we do it right. Yeah yeah and. I want to close by just saying i've if thirty years old which is amazing. I've been with the organization nearly twenty years. Which is baffling. And the thing that i've learned on the way is that these are all questions of movements and not individuals like as an individual. The best thing you can do join a movement right like if you're worried about climate change. It doesn't really like how well you recycle is way less important than what you do with your neighbors to change the way that we think about our relationship to the climate and if you're worried about our technological environment than your individual choices do matter but they don't matter nearly so much as the choices that you make when you get together with other people to make this part of a bigger water struggle. I think that so right. And and even those who are out there in their garages innovating right now. They need all the rest of the conversation to work. You know nobody just put something out there in the world and it magically caught fire and change the world i mean. We like that narrative. But that's not how it works and so even if you're one of those people and there are many of them are eff fans and we love them. Who are like out there thinking about the next big idea. This whole movement has to move forward so that that big idea against the find the vernal grounded needs take seed and grows and then gives all the rest of us the really cool stuff in our fixed future so of thank you so much cory for Taking time with us you know you never. You never fail to To bring exciting ideas. And i think that you also are really willing to talk To a sophisticated audience and not talk down to people and and bring in complicated ideas Without without having and expect and get the audience to Come up to the level of the conversation so i certainly always learn from talking with you. I rose to say. I learned it all from you guys. So thank you very much. And i miss you guys Can't wait to see you in person again. Korea's this little bowl of pure idea concentrate and i was madly scribbling notes through the discussion but one of the phrases. The stuck with me was the he said. The company is a blocking interoperability to control critics customers and competitors. Yeah i thought that was really good too and and and obviously the most important part of all of this is control. I mean that's what the companies have. Of course the part about critics is what especially triggers. The first amendment concerns But the but control is the thing. And i think that the the ultimate power that that we should have The bolt amount of control. We should have is the ability to leave. The ultimate power is the power to leave the. That's the core thing that is needed to get companies to concentrate on their users The conflict here is really between companies desire to control users and users Having the right to choose where they want to be one of the other things that i think comes out of this. Discussion is when you realize that. Companies by blocking interoperability can have exclusive power of.

A superpower under underrated is kindness. Like i just. I just watched two parents who were really good people and would see people that folks walk past all the time. I one of my favorite quotes by humorous gave. Barry has this goes someone who nice to you but not nice to the waiter is not a nice person but you and i both know 'cause i know you have this kindness and you as well that when you are kind of people. Incredible things happen that you don't realize your favorite stories and i'll tell you the quicker version but you go into school at stanford i'd five back and forth across the country. I still remember getting on this plane as a stanford student and being is torturous. When you're like six foot three football player tight end just like coach. Was you know always like my knees. We're going to be banged up on this plane. I have two seats open next to the rest of the plane is full and just before the door closes. This woman walks in with a screaming baby and a little boy and everybody on that plane. Those where they're sitting because the only three bodies two seats. And i think that we all don't realize we have a choice that we make every moment of our lives which is to accept things as they are or take responsibility for changing and so something evolved thought for teenage college student. That point hit which was. This is either going to be the worst flight in my life where i can try to make the best so i just leaned in and started talking to her in the cry baby in soon as i got into my own drama. I realize. Oh my gosh. This woman has a crying baby. The whole plane is looking at her like she's evil as she did something outside and told her baby to cry. Purposefully right and and so we just having a good time. I still remember the movie. Think about this. How purposeful this moment for me. That i remember that movie was glory with denzel washington. And she's like. I haven't seen the movie and so long and i'm like watch this movie your son and i we're gonna play games. We played hangman. Killed them with all my best. Dad jokes that. I had even back then killed them and hangman mad. And by the time we landed. It was the quickest flight. I ever had cross country. You said we keep in touch. We exchange addresses back then no email and didn't and five ten fifteen years later. I'm running for mayor of the city of newark. And i'm getting like thumped and on one of my toughest ones frustrating days. I get this letter in the mail saying to me. You may not remember me but <hes>. But i you were on this flight first time. I flew with my kids telling me what the kindness then meant to her and then she tells me by the way we. My family owns a big factory in newark and we have tons of employees. She ended up becoming a big part of my campaign. That kid that i tortured with my jokes became one of our best volunteers or per workers. Excuse me to take. Their churches introduced me. It was just an amazing full circle. Kindness is energy stanford. Professor actually studies this that you just doing one kind act witnessed by someone. It will affect people three degrees of separation for you. it is created a way to measuring it. it's a virtuous thing and so my life you know. I just think that that's is a superpower that we under related just a kind word to somebody at the right time can make a difference that you don't even realize so. I don't know if i don't have any superpowers. I'm really far more ordinary than the hype as you just said but i've just tried to go out of my way for me. It's it's a matter of my faith which is of radical love trying to do for people and you have parents like you. And i probably had two black guys who had parents would not let me forget of the struggle parents that were involved in the civil rights movement. That my i. I was raised up thinking like i didn't the privileges that i enjoy. We're not earned. They were paid for as my grandparents. Would by the blood sweat and tears of your ancest-. I definitely grew up thinking i stand on the shoulders of those who came before me. I have a responsibility to the people who march to died protested. Who were enslaved. There i remember being in college and thinking you know i was why and i didn't feel that responsibility. The past i mean cool to like pena. Cia but i can't. I have a responsibility. People came before me. I wouldn't be here without them. So i have to do something. And perhaps my think my journey in media has been something of being helpful black people in some way but you know that sense of responsibility that you talk about. I definitely felt and you have that has powered your life. It is the my faith earlier. But that is in trenton. Integral part of what motivated my life decisions. And very you know i. I'm here because a group of people fought for my housing rights. Like i grew up in the town. I grew up in harrington park. There was a group of activists when my parents were getting denied real estate agents were lying to them and telling this house is sold. It was called real estate steering at the time right and so they set up this sting operation where they would send white couples right behind my parents and so it i mean this was the story into making chapter my book because involvement at one point. My father's lawyer getting punched in the face and just like dog being signal. my dad craziness. But i'm a baby when that happened. Fifty years ago this summer that had happened and so imagine growing up with parents that could live. Look you in the eye. My dad be like boy. People had fight even get you a chance to be in the school. You're going to. You're going to get your out of bed and go to school and make the best out of yourself and so coming out of loss when i'm done and i always joke that my dad was like bat impressed. He was proud of his son but stanford oxford yale. He's like boy. You got more degrees the month of july. Which ain't hot life ain't about the degrees you get. It's about the service you give like. We're gonna do with all this privilege and so the first job. I had coming out of law. School was a tennis rights lawyer. People fought for my housing rights. I was going to go and fight for other people's and so my life. And i love you said this because we grew up reading bolt we reading voice and talented tenth and the obligations of that you get from getting the privileges that you know are denied to you. Got here is black. Men who i know the data i mean the leading cause of death for us murder fifty four fifty between fifty and sixty percent homicides in america are people look a lot like us black men and and so you feel this sense of. I can't rest. I've got to keep working. Got to keep pushing until we can make the society be what it is and by the way we never get there. At least we can try to pay that payback. What was given to us.

"Business model. They're in the black market. Yeah. That's right. There are people who do this stuff because they care about it and have good motives. MEDTRONIC's workhorse ventilators. If you have a busted monitor on one and you have another one that is busted, but the monitor works and you swap the Monitor and the working ventilator and you bottom together unless someone enters what they call a sync code, the to won't work together and there's a Polish technician who was certified by Medtronic and then quit, and he still has the software that generates the unlock codes and he makes little hardware dangles in things like old lamp cases and guitar pedals and mails them to technicians around the world so they can keep ventilators working that. cyberpunk thing. A also solving a problem that shouldn't exist in the first place. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's cool and all but like what a lot of ingenuity and talent that could be directed to just making better ventilators or like fixing more ventilators like it's just such a perverse distortion of how you would want technology policy to make the world. Look. That's the whole point of policies policy is supposed to realize. Some worldview right it's supposed to approximate some ideal. We Want X.. Y., and Z. to happen. So we'd go out and do it and you know when Canada was bringing in its drm law I got into a twitter fight with James More who's out your ways the MP for Coquitlam at the time the Tory MP actually had to resign because of a sex scandal he's been being called Wilfred via tax. So yes he's a, he's a bad man but he and Tony Clement who also had to resign because of a scandal. There's kind of a pattern news near both conservative copyright guys during my like time of anti copyright advocacy they were both the enemies. Now, how did you get your friends to ban those Tory ministers anyway, I. Would actually slip into like leftist activists girls. DM's before yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I know people through like the Social Democratic Party and stuff they're like Yeah Tony Clement Message. Anyway. So James More I picked this fight with them on twitter and said like if I own an IPAD why shouldn't I be able to decide what software runs on it? It's mind right I bought it like you're supposed to believe in property right and in so-called intellectual property. So some software author at their rights, an APP for my IPAD, it's his. Intellectual Property I own the IPAD it's my actual non metaphorical property. I WANNA run his program on my IPAD and you're saying that unless like Steve Jobs says that it's okay that it should be a felony and he said, well, you know if you don't to if you don't want to abide by the rules that apple sets down, don't buy an apple product. Aren't you meant to be the property maximum. How is it that? I am the one arguing for property rights here like something has gone horribly topsy turvy in Canadian politics. Tories are saying property rights are evil and we should reduce them so that you know our social purposes can be met. I mean I guess that's the story of every pipeline as well. It's always been highly selective, but it was weird to have him saying a right there, and then you know so bluntly. I guess, the heart of the advocacy for property rights isn't based on the abstract principle of people having property. It's based on protecting the massive wealth and holdings of the real property owners. You know like that twelve multinational corporations that own all the intellectual property that Lisa's John Deere tractors. In the future are going to be leasing us our IPADS and taking them away when we stop paying subscription fees. Like that's what they mean by a property. I hear you but not by their own lights, right like when you you know you right and that's I guess that's the point of having these fights with them as to flush them out on this. You know they're all like in two Soto and John Locke land where they're like property rights automatically emerge when you mix your labor with Terra Nullius, which is lauck right and then without property without markets, you have these kind of anti. Commons. Effects were no one can get anything done, and so property rights are how markets are able to do their magic allocations and so you go to them and you say. Like, wait a second I wrote this APP, which means that I like mixed my labor with this terra nullius of like software code and we want to have markets and for this stuff so that we can get efficient allocations like why did we get a commissar in Cupertino who gets to structure the market according to their five year plan instead of having the, you know the all against all world of your beautiful line Randy vision and they're like humming the internationale early and like a rearranging the columns in their five year plan and about how great it's going to be when the wheat harvest comes in it's bizarre. Have, a look at this beautiful car right here isn't she beautiful real perfect. Love it love the paint job. Yeah. This girl wasn't in great shape when I got it from the scrap lot but you know my old man, Tommy how to fix up a car and Look at her she rides to just the abuse you WanNa pop open the hood. You don't have to ask me twice which she got in their v Six v eight Oh. Yeah. V8 Nice I. Bet it hers Yeah Love Owning Repairing fixing up working with my hands. You know that's what my dad, Tom Yeah I feel like you don't really own a car unless you know how to take apart and change the oil yourself, and this is the thing with the kids right? These kids these don't really own anything. They don't know how to take their iphones at aren't prepare their I max. Yeah, right. Well, maybe if pumpkin spice inside air, some of them I got a nephew is thirteen year old kid he was showing me these special screwdrivers he had to order to bust open his own iphone. It's these companies nowadays too. They don't make it easy for you. Now they've got this digital rights management. Would I call it digital crap management it interferes with the rights of hard working people who love their cars like me all these parts. Now you gotta like call the companies to activate them. If you want to install it, I was on the phone with them for forty five minutes asking him to give me this goddamn part. They say, they don't make it anymore and they're saying they won't let other people make it either and I'm like, where am I supposed to get this part? From you jackals yeah, I thought we lived in a country with freedom. When you bought a car, you own a car and I mean that's the beauty of the free market right if someone's not making the part to a car with an entrepreneur, get set up and start making them and selling them and they get a little money for themselves they help people out. That's a system at work. But that's just not how it's working these days. I was reading thirteen this car Renault Zoe ahead of feature where instead of owning own. Battery of your electric car you license with Dram that gives the company the power to prevent the battery from charging. So you're saying some suits down in silicon valley or wherever they are can push all that crap valley can push a button and turn off battery to my car. No thank you. I don't want Elon Musk deciding whether or not my battery is working I. Know You said it was a different company but don't trust that guy lawns know better actually earlier this year twenty twenty, some poor schmuck buys this, Tesla. Model S he's like, Oh, I'm getting in Model S at does everything a model s does tesla goes and looks this is a used car not the guy who bought it from us we're going to turn off its autopilot feature because it's run through the central computer of the Tesla, and if this poor idiot wants to get autopilot and his car again Oh, he's going to have to pay the suits and other eight thousand bucks even though he bought the car that was perfectly working already had autopilot I tell you man I'm. Going to buy a car newer than two thousand and ten again. You hear there was a lawsuit recently where Ford for American car company wanted not one of these Tesla Silicon Valley types real American car for a real American man who likes to fix things with his hands. That's why you'd think they sue a company called Otto? Who made a diagnostic to you know what they're suing them for they had debris. DRM. To get the list of four car parts for this car that they used in building there to also for it takes them to court tries to make them shut down their diagnostic swear to God these. We own this list you can't use it. They're coming for our basic rights. If you can't even print a list of parts that correspond to something, they're coming for your basic freedoms that's.

And that's like saying you can have a really big faucet on your house and it doesn't matter what kind of water maintenance connected to. The Faucet, is not problem there. So let's talk about water I a 'cause. I'm not sure I agree with you on this talking about water right? If the House pays water bill. and. And Josh Is. Decides to only drink bottled water that brings in. He only peas into. Composting toilet that he has in his house. And he takes care of all that he never touches a drop of water a Dune type situation do where's still suit totally water independent of the rest of the house should he have to pay part of? Water bill. Simply because it's available. Okay. I'm going to make a different argument here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA scratch and re factor here. The reason he should do it is is the categorical imperative if all six of these people sat down and said, well, you know we all pitch in for the groceries but I never let us so I want eighteen cents off my grocery bill and we all pitch in for this we all pitch in for that and I I don't even.

To live in a house. Is Not. To have that arrangement to live in a house community and happily is to have arrangement where you acknowledge that there are some positive externalities that other people benefit from just as you benefit from their positive extra analyses, I, agree with all of those things except the why I'm sorry. Here's an say. It pains me to disagree with my friend Cory doctoral even though I, agree with Gloria on all points. If, it can be said truthfully, if Josh is not using that Wi fi. If he's not watching the television, right? If he's not streaming a thing if he's like if it's true that the only Internet that he's getting is off of his own phone..

"Well Lo and welcome back to the Cory doctorow podcast. It is another Sunday and the British edition of the third little brother novel attack surface has been out for four days since October 31st. If you're in the UK or Australia or New Zealand or India or South Africa or other English-speaking countries that aren't Canada or the US the head of Zeus edition of attack surface is available to you and that also means that if you live in those countries, you're too late to preorder it and get a copy of the exclusive little brother story that comes with it for pre-orders. That's the story Force multiplier, which you Roy took if you buy an advanced, however, there is still a way to get it which is to back my Kickstarter. My Kickstarter has just a few days left in it. It's just crossing to page. Fifty thousand dollars, which is quite a damn result. I mean, hang on I just need a minute. Yeah, it's quite a damn result and everyone who backs that Kickstarter at any level will get a copy of both the book and audiobook for Force multiplier when it comes out. If you're a Canadian or an American the print edition that you can buy comes out on October 13th from Tor books distributed in Canada by raincoast and you still have time to pre-order a copy and get your receipt to tour and they will send you force multiplier when the book comes out. However, you also can back that Kickstarter and honestly, if you like listening to me read non-fiction, that means that you like my fiction in audio form and that means that you would probably like this audiobook and the audiobook of attack surface has been getting great early reviews and it is $15 on the kickstarter and it will be $25 after the kickstarter. So this is your chance to get it at a significant discount for just a few more days. So once again off And a beat that drum the kickstarter for tax surface has just a few more days $15 gets you a copy of the audio book plus the bonus story Force multiplier as an e-book an audiobook day-and-a-half. There we go. All right, what else is going on? Well last week you heard me talk about the attack surface lectures these eight bookstore sponsored lectures across the u.s. With special guests were talking about the themes from the book and like I said, I could not figure out any way to make sense of this so that if you wanted to go more than one you didn't have to pay twice, but at least I had this tiny little partial solution. Well, it's a there's two parts of the partial solution. The first part is we're going to put the videos up afterwards. I don't know exactly when still negotiating that but you know, it's not going to be too long and so you can watch all eight of them for free the other part though is that if you do want to go more than one and you are okay with paying which like again you don't need to you can just wait until afterwards, but if you want to juice Soliciting libraries schools halfway house has juvy facilities prison libraries other institutions that want a copy of attack surface and I'm going to list wage those on a page that you can go to and if you buy a copy of the book that you don't need in order to attend one of the lectures you can send your copy to one of them that also means that if you're affiliated with or if you're close too soon as you age ended with a library a school University a halfway house of prison homeless shelter family shelter any other institution that might like a free.

Thank you to all our supporters so far at the beginning they are you hurt Our Guest this week author and gentle rights Advocate Cory doctorow and we're going to be talking to Corey in a moment about among other things his new book attack surface and about where his work intersects with economics and all about the importance of the late. Great Anthropologist. David graeber who with his book Debt the first 5,000 years got many of us thinking about money in a different way the typical mainstream economics textbook story is that money is a system of tokens that evolved spontaneously through humans needing to solve the problem of barter the inconvenience of them. To wait for someone to come along who not only had what you wanted, but also wanted what you had to so-called double coincidence of wants and to solve the problem human started using Focus to represent value starting with feathers and stones and Beads and shells and eventually settling on precious metals because you can make them into coins, and they're hard to counterfeit and because the precious metals at some point people prefer not to carry them around, but instead to lock them in volts a tissue paper ious for their precious metals, and then eventually people worked out that the system would work fine without the precious metals to back up the I owe you's so then we moved to Pure Fiat currencies, and then we worked out that we didn't even need to carry around the paper money. So now we just keep most of our currency tokens as long entries on a spreadsheet at an institution called a bank and when we want to pay someone we tell our bank to move some of our tokens from our name and our bank into another person's name. Their Bank by writing a check or swiping a card and our respective Banks change our Ledger entries according to our instructions. All of which is a long story that comes to a conclusion that our present-day economies are still just barter economies, but with money or be at getting more and more sophisticated just serving as a device to remove frictions those big shiny buildings in your Capital Cities Finance District are just full of people just wanting.

"In Sixteen Sixty John Locke published his two treatises of government where he set out to resolve the seeming conflict between individual property rights, which he valorize, D- And the Bible Ditto which set out the principle that God had created the Earth and its bounty for all of humanity. How could a Christian claim to own something personally when God intended for everyone to share? His creation logs answer was the labor theory of property. Private property is the result of a human being taking an unclaimed piece of the common property of humanity and mixing it with their labor. Each human owns their body, and thus the Labor of that body creating our property cocktail one part unimproved nature, one part-human sweater the brown mix well, and serve in perpetuity. More than a thousand years before John was born the people of the island of Keke coined the term Aloha, which is president all the languages of the region today. It's an untranslatable word that conveys a beautiful complex blend of emotions and sentiments. So iconic that adherence to the aloha spirit has been Hawaiian state law since one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six and the nineteen seventies three hundred years after the publication two treaties of Government Hawaiian express their aloha spirit and dish called poke a delicious mix of raw fish served with Seaweed, rice, Greens, roasted, and craft cuckoo not mean and other variations in two thousand twelve. This dish spreads the mainland and mutated further acquiring many new and delicious variants in two thousand, sixteen centuries after Aloha and lock decades after Polka. Zach friedlander founded a restaurant called aloha poke in Chicago, and in the summer of two thousand eighteen friedlander successor Chris Birkenshaw retain the law firm of Olsen and support us limited to threaten Hawaiian shafts operating pokey restaurants insisting that they remove the word Aloha from their business names friedlander defended the company's actions and dismissed criticism as a quote witch hunt and quote fake news. Eventually prompted of Polka to issue a half oust self pitying apology and tobacco off a little from its threats. Reading that apology, you can see the specter of lock haunting every word Friedlander, his staff, and his investors put real work into making a midwestern chain of restaurants identified by the name below. Those unimproved words had been around forever and no one else was building a national empire with them by getting to the idea I and mixing their labor with it. They had transformed the bounty of nature into private property. This odious spectre haunts much of the world today and it has plenty of company for this conception of property rights has sent millions to their graves in seventeen seventy, eight Europeans began to colonize the inhabited continent of Australia who's aboriginal people have lived there for over sixty five, thousand years. These people did not embrace lock in property theories, but they certainly used an improved the land they had inhabited for virtually the entire era of behaviorally modern human existence. The Europeans staunch lock INS had a problem. They want a harvest, the bounty of a new continent, but absent the agreement of the people who already live there. This would be theft by lockie and lights. To solve the conundrum, they deployed a bit of Aloha poke logic. They declared the ancient community helping to be owned by no one they called it terra nullius nobody's land and proceeded to improve it to make it into property meaning these improvements involved acts of genocide against the indigenous people after all, if something is owned by nobody than the people on the land must be nobody. Both finality of Aloha. And the genocidal brutality of terra nullius reveal deep problem lurking in the lock in conception of property. All the stuff that's just lying around is actually already in relation to other people often the kind of complex relation that doesn't lend itself to property like transactions where someone with deep pockets can come along in by thing from its existing quote owner. The Labor theory of property always begins with an active erasure, all the people who created used and improve this thing before me we're doing something Banal and unimportant, but my contribution is the step that move this thing from a useless unregarded comments to a special proprietary finished good. Criticism of this delusion of personal exceptionalism is buttress by of affronted perplexity can't you see how much of my really top notch Labor I blended with as natural resource to improve it who will willingly give their own Labor to future projects. If every time they do loafers, takers common free ride on their new property. This Move continues the erasure. It denies the claims of everyone who came before you as a historical figments. The people coined popularized and nurtured the word aloha or inhabited. The Australasian landmass are stripped to their claims as though they were honeybees whose output is a naturally occurring substance that property belongs to the beekeeper, not the swarm.

"Hi there and welcome back to the Corey Dr a podcast I'm sorry that this is coming a few days like this week I've been having Mike Problems very early on during the plague, our local power substation exploded. Probably. Because they were running short handed and couldn't do routine maintenance, the fireball was visible from several miles away my power supply conditioner was tied to throw it away. And My soundboard where I plug my mic into start Fritz, and it's been getting worse and worse than I tried replacing it with some other equipment none of which ended up working. I've got more equipment on order. John has been tirelessly helping me tech this but in the meantime. Needed some financing to get you a reporting. So I'm hoping that my recording gear holds up because I have a couple of gigs coming up this week. The first is that on the twelfth, which is in two days as I record this Monday afternoon that I'm recording us, I'll be talking with Christopher Brown about failed state his latest novel the third of his novels about a kind of Echo Pakalitha Texas legal thriller comes cyberpunk Thriller Come Eco Thriller they're really Good Books Brown another one in Bruce Sterling's proteges and really is. An amazing writer and a very fun and thoughtful speaker too. So it should be a good event we're doing with book people in Austin, my very favorite bookstores in the whole world, and then on the fifteenth as I mentioned last week, I'm being inducted into the Canadian fiction and fantasy hall of fame, and that's a the when worlds collide convention events free to attend P WANNA. Hear me say all kinds of schmaltzy things and maybe choke up a little. That's the one to come to. You know the drill I have new books. There's an omnibus edition of little brother and homeland that's just come out with an introduction by ED. SNOWDEN makes a handy. Dandy gift they're beautiful and there's also my first ever picture book Posey the Monster slayer delightful book illustrated by Rockefeller, about a little girl who doesn't like to go to bed because it's much more fun to repurpose her toys field expedient monster. Hunting weapons. This is great for her not so great for her parents whose lack of sleep turns them into zombies, and that is the only kind of monster that this little girl posy can't defeat. Yes I am drawing on some personal experience here, and thankfully our daughter is sleeping a little better these days now that she's twelve, I hope you're sleeping K. to I hope your life is chugging along well. So, this week, I'm not GonNa read to you from someone comes to. Town. Because someone on twitter pointed out that I never read my locust column Terra Nullius into this podcast. I think that's because I- podcast a speech I gave that hued very closely to the column that I gave at the Internet archive as part of what they call the grand reopening in the public domain that was ear and change ago when for the first time in seventy years, new works enter the public domain in the United States and they had a party like it was nineteen, twenty, nine I think was the thing now that I think about it that sounds starting to maybe party like nineteen twenty-three. I don't know I can't remember what the actual date was, but I went and gave this talk about the nature of copyright and so-called Intellectual Property afterwards. Some people I really admire said some really kind things about Larry lessig James Boyle, and others so. That went over. Well, the title turned Nullius obviously comes from this idea that settlers colonialists used in the so-called new world. But in particular that phrase came to mind when I spoke in several forums in Australia during the tour for walkaway and in many of those cases I spoke with or opposite clear Coleman who has a very good book by that title Terron Elliot's Clara's on aboriginal person from Australia who is also trains and who wrote a book about the intersection of gender indigenous identity and Australian politics. That is very good and I recommend you. Okay Dan without further ado, I'm going to now re to turn Elias I've got a reduction get out of here because I got a big day ahead of me, I'm going to go into a studio and record a documentary interview for vice they have. Booked the studio over the entire weekend. As I record this I say it's Monday afternoon. No one has been in the studio since Friday been sitting empty I'm GonNa go in masked no one else is going to be there will be a video camera and a screen pointing at me that will interview me and I'm going to use a sterile microphone that I click to my own lapel to talk back it's going to be an adventure. Kind booked me studio around the corner and apparently the century is going to be the cornerstone of the dock. So they have asked me to come in for a very long time two and a half hour. So I gotTA hurry here. So that further ado then turn Elliot's from the March twenty, nineteen issue of Locus magazine..

"Joe Rolled his eyes which had gone the murky yellow swamp water. Wonderful Right There are better ways to achieve mortality. Bro. I'm designing crawl through for horror zone. You're an earthworm crawling underneath a graveyard. Hits going to be huge maggots as big as horses chasing the guests through the tunnels huge ghost hands grabbing at them we're building a giant tombstone as the Weenie. You'll be able to see it from anywhere on. The island will build out over the midway for horror zone. It's the biggest Rehab. We've done since they brought in electric power as usual. George didn't know what to say to Joe. That sounds very nice. He said Joe rolled his eyes again and started to say something but stopped. When three guests came up to Georgia's booth. George hardly recognize the Mitchell brothers. The youngest was already three quarters donkey so dangerously close that it was a miracle he hadn't been picked up already. He was hunched over in his hands refused into fists. His hair had grown down over his shoulders. And of course main and his lips bold around his elongated jaws the middle and eldest. Were well on their way to the points of their ears poked out from under their hair and they carried themselves painfully forcing their legs. Hips Upright. George flipped over his phone and punched nine one one but left it out of sight below the counter loudly. He said. Come ON OVER BOYS. You look like you can use. One of Georgia's triple dips the best on the midway from the phone. He heard the security operators. Say Thank you George will be along in a moment surreptitiously. He racked the receiver and smiled at the boys. How are you enjoying your stay boys? He said awesome the youngest set around his clumsy teeth. George handed him a cone piled high with floss than started building. Two more for his brothers. Joe smirked at them. George hoped he wouldn't say anything before security. Got There the eldest said. I don't think my brother's feeling too good. Is there a doctor here? I can take him to the youngest face. Sticky with confection kicked his brother. I'm fine he said I want to go on more ride. His brother said we'll go more rides. After we see a doctor the youngest dropped to his knees and cried no. He said hammering his fists on the ground. No no now. George watched an alarm as the boy went all the way over to donkey his cries turn to braise and his short split around his haunches entail his shirt went next and George smoothly vaulted the counter and stood in front of the donkey blocking him from passers by the other two made a run for it. George Snag the Middle One by his collar. But the boy tour free took off down the midway. George looked wildly for security but they still hadn't arrived then. Joe Tore past him moving faster than George had ever seen him go. He caught the boys and stuffed one under each arm kicking and squirming. He grinned ferociously as he pinned them beneath his knees Georgia's feet. He claimed his hands over their mouths. Got Him he said to George. A security team emerged from the Utilit- orb aside Georgia's booth wearing clown makeup and baggy pants. Two of them tranquilize the boys and the third fitted the donkey out with a halter and bit. The clowns slapped the donkeys haunch appreciative. -Ly He's a healthy one. The security team disappeared down the UTILITY DOOR WITH MITCHELL. Brothers two boys and a donkey. George smacked Joe smacked George on the back. Did you see me catch them? Like greased lightning bounty here. I come. George didn't mind sharing bounty with Joe so he just smiled and nodded and went back around to his booth. Bill named his son. Tom Names weren't very important to their people. But the soft ones world demanded them within a week. Tom was eagerly waddling through their cabin tasting. Everything exploring everything. His is shown with curious. Brilliant the clever son of clever son. George Loved Bill Son. He loved to watch Tom as he nodded. They're betting as he dug at the floor in search of GRUBS. Tom Was clearly delighted with his surroundings. George basked and Tom's delight. George could barely. Bill could barely restrain himself from picking. Tom Up and hugging him. Every moment the only time you left George alone with Tom was a few precious moments after each evening's meal when he would duck into the woods to find some new toy for Tom. A crippled chipmunk. A handful of pretty rocks a discarded beer can the sun built bizarre towers out of them then knocked them down. Fit OF GIGGLES Tom. Eight all day long and spoke a steady stream of adorable nonsense. Bill hardly spoke to George. Their evening meals were given over to watching the sun eat. George didn't mind talking to the guests. All Day wore him out. When Tom was two months old joe came by Georgia's booth. Well its final tomorrow. Shut DOWN THE MIDWAY. Too old fashioned. It's only stood this long because some of the older imagineering had an emotional attachment to I told him. That's your demographic not the target demographic so we're knocking it down. Horror zones going to be huge. He skipped off before George could say anything. His ears were long and pointed. It wasn't the first time George noticed it but now he could see that. Joe's hunched over gate wasn't just because of his belly. George built a dozen cones for the guests but his heart wasn't in it. Besides most of the guests already had their hands full of Gummy spiders and snakes from the Action Land Jungle Treats Buffet. His thoughts were full of Joe and he turned them over in his slow cautious manner. Joe is turning into a donkey. He didn't think that one of their kind could turn into a donkey. But this was pleasure. Island indulging vices was dangerous pastime. Here he should tell bill but there was no phone at the cabinet. He couldn't send a runner for him. Because this was family business is shift would end for hours yet and this was too important to wait. Finally he called his lead. I have to get off stage. I'm having a bad day. Technically this was allowed management. Didn't want anyone on stage wasn't one hundred percent but it was something that none of the brothers not even Joe had ever done. The lead was surprised but he sent over a soft one to relieve George Orrville and bill. Were sitting out front of the cabin watching Tom. When George got back he rung his hands as he approached them. Not sure of what to say and whether he should talk in front of. Orville at all. He held his left thumb in his right hand and it comforted him a little bill in order were so engrossed in. Tom's acts bill and Orville were so engrossed in Tom's antics that they didn't even notice George until he cleared his throat. Orrville raised his eyebrows and looked significantly at bill. I just saw Joe George said on the midway his ears pointed and he's walking all hunched over. I give him a few days at the most before. He's all the way gone. George held his breath waiting for bills reaction to bad. Bill said it was inevitable. I suppose a child of the tongue. What was father thinking? Orville smiled and puff did his pipe. Don't you worry about George? Joe Is going to be much much happier focused. If you'd like I can bring him out here to live little Tom Pony rights. Bill said I don't think that's such a good idea. Joe's too wild play with a child or we'll put a hand on his shoulder. You'd be amazed at how docile he'll become. Bill scooped up Tom who was up to his waist. Now and who likes to grab onto bills knows we'll see then. He retreated into the cabin with his son. Orval turn to Georgia and said you've probably heard that we're taking down the midway tomorrow. The others are all being reassigned until the Rehab is done. But I thought I'd see if I could get you a couple of months off. You could stay here and play with Tom. It's not every day you get to be a new uncle. Orrville had always taken obvious pleasure in the transformation of boys into donkeys. It was the whole why of pleasure island after all. Orville seemed especially pleased tonight and George that he was as surprised about bill as George was well. The dodger really worked up about something. Aren't they and apparently there is not another person in my house. Who can quiet them right now okay. I think they're done George not knowing what to say to any of it said nothing like they literally waited seconds to bark. I could have just paused at the end of that section. It didn't take long for George to start missing the midway stuck at the cabin with bill and Tom. He sat against an outside wall and tried not to get in the way. He prepared meals in silence. Taking a long time in the woods gathering up choice morsels bill and Tom. Eight on the floor away from the table. Bill chewed the tougher morsels first and then put them in. Tom's mouth with his crippled left. Hand most of the time. Neither of them took any notice of George one day he prepared a whole day's worth of meals and left them on the table then walked to the Hewlett then walked to the utility at the other side of the woods. He boarded a tram in road to the old midway entrance. The midway was fenced in with tall plywood sheets and construction. Crews bustled over the naked skeletons of the new horror zone. Heavy machinery groaned and crashed nothing but the distant silhouettes of action land skyline were familiar. George tried to imagine working here for years to come and overwhelming. Tiredness weighed him down. He took the tram back to the cabinet. Stripped off his clothes. They were browner than ever. His arms felt weak and tired. He suddenly knew that he would never have a son of his own. Bill and Tom were playing out front of the cabin. He sat in his usual spot against the wall and watched them bill. He said softly yes. Bill said when will I have a son of my own? Bill always knew the answers. Bill gathered tom up to his chest unconsciously while he thought I suppose that once. Tom has grown. You could take some time off and have a son of your own to his own surprise. George said I want to have a son now. Bill said that's out of the question. George we're too busy with Tom on hearing bills annoyed tone. Tom Leaned into him. George said I'm not busy. I am old though if I don't have a son soon I won't be able to care for it until it's old enough to care for me. Bill said you're thinking father we're living with the soft ones now. Orval wants to make sure that you and your son will be fine until he's grown. George never want arguments with bill. He went inside the cabin and set out dinner. Orrville visited the brothers the next morning he talked he chops Tom under the Chin and shook hands with bill then he took George out into the woods for a walk. Your brother tells me you want the son of your own. He said George nodded and stooped to put a small Mossy log in his basket..

"Hey nerds I'm well wheaton and you are hearing me talk. It's Monday April thirteenth. Two Thousand Twenty and Goodness I've been doing this quarantine for like almost I think almost six weeks. It's been awhile for those of you. Who are listening for the very first time Since we started our social distancing and our safer at home initiative I have been grabbing public domain works of speculative fiction and reading and releasing them as free audiobooks. Once or twice a week. I've mostly been going through the Internet archive and grabbing old work that are out of copyright and I had this thought over the weekend and I reached out to my friend Cory doctor Oh Corey is an accomplished and a highly respected science fiction author and a digital rights activists and just an incredible human being and I said Hey. I've been reading all the stuff from the twenties and thirties. And I wondered if you knew. Is there anything from the sixties and seventies and he said? Yeah actually there is and he gave me a couple of recommendations and I said Hey as long as I have your attention. I know that you make all of your work available with the creative. Commons license I know that we have worked together professionally before. Corey has hired me to read some of his audio books In the past and it's been tremendous we have a wonderful working relationship and And and I said I I know that you probably have audio of all of your books but I would love to read one of your stories because I think you're a great author and it would be fun to read something that is a little more contemporary than some of these works that I've been releasing and he said sure. Go ahead take anything you want so I started looking through Corey's a bibliography and I settled on a short story. That is from his book. A place so foreign and eight more. It was originally published in September. Two thousand three by four walls eight windows press and this is a story called return to pleasure island It was originally published in realms of fantasy in August of nineteen ninety nine then it was collected in a place so foreign and eight more in two thousand three and now it is being read By me for free here is a note that Corey included with this file at project. Gutenberg I'm going to read it in its entirety because I think it is awesome and inspiring and then I am going to get out of your way and let you listen to the story which I sincerely hope you enjoy so this is a note about this story from Dr. Oh this story is from my collection a place so foreign and eight more published by four walls eight windows press in September two thousand three. I S Bien one five six eight five eight two eight six two Korean. I have a history of him making me read long strings of numbers. I released the story along with five others under the terms of creative Commons license. That gives you the reader a bunch of rights that copyright normally reserved for me the Creator. I recently did the same thing with the entire Texas. My novel down out in the Magic Kingdom available that crap hound dot com slash down and it was an unmitigated success. Hundreds of thousands of people downloaded the book. Good News and thousands of people bought the book also good news. It turns out that as near as anyone can tell distributing free electronic versions of books is a great way to sell more of the paper editions while simultaneously. Getting the book into the hands of readers who would otherwise not be exposed to my work. I still don't know how it is. Artists will earn a living in the age of the Internet. But I remain convinced that the way to find out is to basic science. That is to do stuff and observe the outcome. That's what I'm doing here. The thing to remember is that the very worst thing you can do to me. As an artist is to not read my work to let it languished in Obscurity and disappear from posterity. Most of the fiction I grew up on is out of print and this is doubly true for the short stories. Losing a couple of bucks to people who have bought the book save for the availability of the free electronic texts is no big deal at least when compared to the horror that is being irrelevant and unread and luckily for me. It appears that giving away the text for free gets me more paying customers than it loses me. You can find the canonical version of this file at CRAP HOUND DOT com slash place slash download dot. Php If you'd like to convert this file some of their format and distributed you have my permission provided that you don't charge money for the distribution you keep the entire text intact including this notice the license below and the Meta data at the end of the file. You don't use a file. Format that has drm or copy protection or any other form of use restriction. Turned on if you'd like you can advertise the existence of your edition by posting a link to it at CRAP HOUND DOT com slash place slash. A whole bunch of Zeros. The number fourteen. You're not going to do that. You're listening to ninety bucks but I included all of it This is released under the Creative Commons by MD NC. Onepointoh license attribution. No derivative noncommercial boy. That's a lot of legalese. But isn't that cool at Correy says about obscurity being such a threat to the artist. So much more of a threat than someone taking your work and not giving money for it. Listen I love it when you give me money from my work. It feels validating and helps me feed my family. It is how survive as an artist but the only way people are GonNa do that is if they know I exist. The only way people are going to buy Corey's books if they know Corey exists so hopefully today he and I are teaming up on something that helps both of us sell books sell podcasts. Create fans do the sorts of things that artists have been doing forever and ever and ever to build community? So thank you for being part of this community and I sincerely hope you enjoy return to pleasure island from a place so foreign and eight more return to pleasure island by Corey. Dr George twiddle his thumbs his booth and watched how the brown clay knuckles danced over. Top of one another not as supple as they had once been his thumbs no longer the texture of wet clay on a Potter's wheel. More like Klay. After it had been worked too exhausted crackling Brittleness he reached into the Swirling Vortex of cotton candy machine with his strong right hand and caught the stainless steel sweep arm the engines wind and he felt them strain against his strong right arm. Like a live thing struggling to escape a trap still strong. He thought still strong and he released the sweep arm to go back to spinning sugar into flaws. A pack of voice sauntered down the midway laughing and calling bouncing high on sugar. In g stresses one of them peeled off from the group and ran to his booth still laughing at some cruelty. He put his palms on Georgia's counter and pushed against it using them to lever his little body and a high speed pogo. Hey Mister he said how about some three color Squirrel Squirrel. That's an entirely different story. Hey Mister he said about some three color. Swirl sprinkles George Smile and knocked the rack of paper cones with strong right. Elbow jostled it so one cone spun high in the air and he caught it in his quick left. Hand Ride Up. He Sang and flip the cone into the floss machine. He spent a beehive of pink. Then layered with stripes of blue and green he reached for the nipple that dispense to the sprinkles but before he turned it spaghetti said. Are you sure you don't WanNa dip to Fudge butterscotch strawberry? The boy bounced even higher so that he was nearly vaulting the counter. All three all three he said George expertly spiraled the floss through the dips then apply to thick crust of sprinkles. Open your mouth kid. He shouted with Realistic Glee. The boy opened his mouth wide. So that the twinkling lights of the mid way reflected off his back molars and the pool of saliva. On his tongue. Georgia's quick clever. Left hand dipped a long handled spoon into the hot fudge then flipped the sticky gob on high arc that terminated perfectly in the boys open mouth. The boy swallowed in laughed Guli. George handed over the dripping confection in his strong right hand and the boy plunged his face into it when he world and ran to rejoin his friends. George saw that his ears were already getting longer and is delighted. Laugh had sounded a little like a bray. A job well done. He thought and watch the rain spattered. The spongey rubber cobbles of the midway. George was supposed to go off shift at midnight. He always showed up promptly at noon but he rarely left as punctually. The soft one who had the midnight to six shift was lazy and late and generally staggered in twelve. Thirty grumbling about his tiredness. George knew how to deal with the soft ones though his father had brought him up surrounded by them so that he spoke without his father's thick accent so that he never inadvertently crushed their soft hands when he shook with them and so that he smiled. Good naturedly and gave up a realistic facsimile of sympathy when they griped perennial gripes. His father how wise the old man had been and how proud and how stupid Georgia Chuck does uniform backstage. Toss it into a laundry hamper noting with dismay how Brown the insides were. How much of himself had eroded away during his shift? He looked at his clever left thumb and his strong right thumb and tasted they're good earthy tastes and then put them away. He dressed himself in the earth colored dungarees and work shirt that his own father had stolen from a laundry line when he left the ancestral home of Georgia's people for the Society of the soft ones. He boarded a cast member. Tram that ran through the utilities underneath pleasure island's midway and stared aimlessly at nothing as the soft ones on. The tram gambled away as the trams sped away to the cast housing and then it was just him and the conductor all the way to the end of the line to the cottage he shared with his two brothers bill and Jo. The conductor wished to a good night when he debunked and he shambled home. Bill was already home napping in the pile of blankets. All three brothers shared in the back room of the cottage. Joe Wasn't home yet even though his shift finished earlier than theirs he never came straight home instead. He wandered backstage watching the midway through. The People's jobs lead had spoken to George about it and Georgian spoken to Joe. But you couldn't tell Joe Anything. George thought of how proud his father had been having three sons three George the son of his strong right thumb and bill. The son of his clever left thumb and Joe Joe the son of his tongue an old man's folly that left him wordless for the remainder of his..
