The Silk Road Trial: A Day to Day Account

Update: The Appeal

Guilty on all 7 counts. The jury of "his peers" took 3 hrs to decide…which is how long it took them to fill out the paperwork. With extensive reasonable doubt, these basic, uncomprehending creatures decided a young man's future on a whim. The youngest female juror was smiling during the entire process, as Ross's family and friends stood frozen in devastation. 

I was the last to go. I got the elevator and the Justice got in with me.

He asked "are you ok?"

"No, I'm not. And neither is America."


I go through my experience (day 1, 2, 3) observing the Silk Road trial in NYC. It's truly a cabaret.

Response to “25 Invisible Benefits of Gaming While Male”

In my many years of gaming online I never felt harassed or discriminated. For context, this is what I look like and what kind of pictures were on my myspace profile (yup, feeling old now), steam account, avatars, forums, etc. 



Gamers will troll you for any reason, and gender is just an easy target. If you can't find a cool group of dudes to run with online, maybe you're just a shitty person (Anita Sarkeesian). I loved being a girl in the gaming world. I knew guys who pretended to be girls online because they got special treatment. I found most guys were thrilled to have someone without a dick around to play with (phrasing).

The only game that I stopped playing because of rudeness and consistent verbal abuse was COD4.  

I was a decent player, and I had a good time, and those three dudes that I stayed up with till 5am beating Left4Dead on the hardest setting doubtfully were only there because they thought they could fuck me.

I'm still friends with several of my gaming comrades and those memories are priceless. I've met a few of them and continue to have wicked non-sexual friendships with them to this day (it's been 6 years. I don't play anymore). 


The Takeaway ​

1. Being discriminated against because you're a female gamer is the exception, not the rule

2. If anyone chooses to not play with you because vagina, try not giving a fuck

3. Rename this video "25 Virgin White Knights" please

Bitcoin Is a Right

The block chain is structured data, a way of organizing information…Restricting or manipulating this flow of information is censorship and an attack on speech. Bitcoin is an extension of the blockchain, bitcoin is information, bitcoin is speech. And speech is an inalienable right. 


How The Silk Road Case Affects Us All

Ross Ulbricht's mother, Lyn Ulbricht tells us the dark truth. I met her at PorcFest 2014 and was moved by her passion not only for her son, but for the preservation of evreryones' freedoms. 

Please donate.
And more importantly, please share this video. This is your freedom. This effects us all. Do not be a spectator. 

"And for those who think sitting on the sidelines in Ulbricht is a popcorn opportunity, this is still the birth of the future of law as applied to our digital future.  Watch it as a spectator at your peril."

Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars also did a very insightful article on the Silk Road issue. Basically, if Ross loses, this means your internet provider will be held liable for your internet activity. THAT means internet providers will put mandatory filters on your traffic and/or spy on you, and censor you to avoid possible liability. And that's just one of the consiquences.
