KillWare III: The Accidental Prisoner

to tireless wastelands webmaster eric xian von foerster—
thanks for introducing me to the cognitive-perceptual
condition called synesthesia
to linus torvalds & all the unsung gifted heroes of the
GNU/linux and opensource (FLOSS – free libre open
source software) communities in the electronic wastelands
of the 21st century
and to gifted & talented at-risk young homosapients
everywhere—who don't need to evolve but should just be
allowed the opportunity
to shine.
