Besides links exchanges between websites, subscribing to each others’ blogs, becoming members in Anonymous forums, chatrooms, participating in anonymous IRC channels, setting up paper.li, tweeted times, and gathering some data from retweeting interesting search terms, what else can we use that’s within the law for gathering ammunition (mining data) and crossing our beams in a social media kakafonia?

More bots of course!

How does it feel to have our lives taken over by the war-work-machine and do things we never intended while we watched our own dreams, passions and joy in life evaporate? Wanting to take our responsibility we may wonder how we got ourselves in this state?

I found myself wondering if it was possible to produce a mirror to analog world political ponerologists and corrupt capn’s of industry in the digital world.

This is just a train of thought, a feasibility study at best

This is not an invasive bot, but a little “pipe” bot. And you don’t have to be able to program, just be able to think logically (somewhat). I am making this one for OpPinkPower. She wants to make sure she doesn’t miss #OpIon and #ENOUGH tweets while sitting confused in an obscene amount of information.
