He's making a list
and checking it twice,
gonna find out who's naughty and nice!

(Too bad that I didn't choose red and white for the ToyCo color scheme. The "Timmy III as evil Santa" concept has potential...)

I don't want to use the word "inevitable", but this is really no surprise...

That rat bastard.

On a positive note, LOVE the Kyocodile!

(And I see one very bad girl on those monitors...

Tona is quite certainly a "bad girl" in more than one definition...

And the Kyocodile? Good idea if Kyo ever wants to sell some CF merch... :-D

When it comes to black ops organizations, AB is already a crowded town.

Too crowded.

Hmm, this points out to me the main reason why a cellphone on every person and a shadow Facebook page for every non-user hasn't already abused free will past the breaking point: The amount of data, and the noise in that data, that comes from all those sources is so stupendously large that it's got remarkably little use as of yet. For the most part it's only useful for making the marketing/advertising industry slightly less ineffective, supplementing in-person stalking, character assassination, and finding low-confidence 'evidence' of crimes and infractions against ideological conformity to punish after the fact.

The current nigh-uselessness of general surveillance will change in the future.

AI will arise that will be able to make use of all that information.

Where we go from there is beyond my event horizon.

I can't claim to have much more insight, beyond commenting that the origins of the technology matters. I think it's vastly underrated how much of society becoming more incomprehensible and unpredictable traces back to how much of our technology gets invented by private interest groups to make money, or serve questionable political goals, than to fulfill genuinely felt needs in the best way possible.

Dear God that guys line is f*£king creepy!
Microraptor 5th Dec 2018, 10:17 AM
True, lirv cranked up his creep factor quite to the extreme here!
(Though he was always supposed to be kinda creepy since his very first appearance.)

That’s a good point, Micro. Timmy III was creepy from the beginning... I picture him and Bettina as having been warped by a borderline abusive father.

Now that this unhappy fact is in the open, how will Boogieman help resolve things?

Incidentally, I am just now working on something that has to do with their father and the relationship he had to his kids... (Coming soon, shortly before Christmas!)
