Interview with a Human: The Freedom Club

Written by on June 24, 2007 | Interview Fragments

What is The Freedom Club?

We are an organisation dedicated to bringing about personal human freedom by opposing the restrictions and order that we believe are being imposed by technology upon us as individuals, and society as a whole.

We believe it is an intrinsic, basic right of every human to have a level of privacy that does not simply mean information security, as well as the right of every biological human being to not be discriminated against because they refuse to take part in cyberization or implantation, or because they simply can’t afford it.

Furthermore, we are wholly opposed to technological progress simply for the sake of profit, which benefits a wealthy few and increases the digital divide, but rather support technological progress for the benefit of mankind, rich or poor.

Since it is the existence of technology itself that is important, and not how it is used, we believe that all scientific research should not be done under the auspices of the military-industrial complex, nor under private, corporate direction, but rather through open source and transparent mechanisms that are wholly owned by the public, because we fund a large part of this research through taxes already. In other words, we believe in a democratic form of scientific research.

The Camp: Interview with creator Jacobs Langdon

Written by on March 6, 2007 | Interview Fragments, Transcript Fragments

Myla Glenford: Where did you get the idea for The Camp?

Jacobs Langdon: A couple of places. When I was a kid, there was this show on TV called Lost, and I wouldn’t miss a single episode. It was incredible. Great storyline, engrossing; it had a tremendous influence on my later ideas. I really loved the idea of a group of people facing the unknown, facing adversity, and trying to cope as best they could. Of course, at the same time, the War on Terror was only a few years old, and Guantanamo was still routinely in the headlines so I guess you can see some of that in there, too. There were a few other things, like the Stanford Prison Experiment that was later used to make the German film Das Experiment, old sci-fi films like The Running Man, uh, even 24. Yeah, there were loads of these little influences I could mention, but if I had to pick out one thing that really inspired me to do The Camp, it would have to be an old Japanese game show from the late nineties called Denpa Shonen.

Wasting Art, Wasting I

Written by on December 17, 2006 | Interview Fragments

The hellish passage was tinted in black and red, seemingly bleeding me towards the swallowing doorway at its end, the glowing, pulsating mouth of some near death experience. I walked through it, silence; my eyes squinted from the harsh glare of fluorescent tubing, everything so uniformly white that angles did not exist.

What hits you at first is the smell. It was like a morgue, clinically clean, yet not even the strongest detergent seemed to remove the smell of decay and death lingering in the background. My eyes were naturally drawn towards the centre of the room where its only feature lay: a hospital gurney, surrounded by plastic pouches of food solution and bodily waste.

And there lay the withering Randal Perkins, dying.
