My name is David, Im a South African. Ive been online since 1992. I still dont know what I am doing.
I live in a country overwhelmed with layer 8 attacks at the moment. Like really, my country is lost.
I had a long career in IT, created an ISP, sold it, went into liberal politics, as I was naive and thought thats how I could help fix society.
I quit my job last month for moral reasons (apparently I was working with the worst of humanity).
I fell down the rabbit hole in the last weekend of July 2017, and have worked non-stop every single day since then on understanding and researching the plagues hitting humanity atm.
I keep trying to do my best to stop the zombie apocalypse, but humanity seem to be hellbent on destroying itself, so not sure what I can do there.
I am currently building the unicomplex. A system of transparent and corruption free governance, where the trust is enforced by blockchain triple entry accounting.
I am also working on developing Centaurians. Its basically a asymmetrical consensus based centaur. A centaur is 3x AI+2 human. Its basically an asymmetrical guardian designed to protect people from modern asymmetrical malware payloads.
The reason I am building this, is having being targeted, I know that a single human mind is not capable of withstanding extended pysops dos and ddos attacks. Even when aware of them, its hard to stop them.
I thought I was pretty hotshot in infosec. (I was recently rated one of the best infosec authors by another website) If I was a hacker, one of my alts may have made the BBC twice and may be the only hacker to have ever knocked an entire dictators country offline (this is its own article on why its not a good idea to route all your dns traffic through two servers).
However, that was more the old me. The new me is more like "whaaaaaaaaat? “wtf?’”
I now know the only thing I know for sure is how little I know.
I work now in a space, where the points dont matter and everything is made up.
I have developed my own “ninj.ga” family model to survive these changes. We are small but strong. I chose ninja because its a clear identity in the new world. Troopers were cool, but felt too, “IBM” for me Ninga have a clear mission. Protect the butterflies.
My general approach as an untrained, psyops person is to go “ooh what happens when I push that big red button that says dont push”.
I now have North Korean transexuals wanting to date me and some weird people asking me if I build “tools of tyranny” into my unicomplex for quick access to cash. I dont even know what tools of tyranny are.
There is one constant Ive learnt in all of this. Run from the money! Basically, the infosec I write about now is so “out there”, that I hide it behind role playing storylines.
