For about a week, somebody has been promoting my work on various social-media platforms and an email distribution list. I received this email message from the person this morning:
“Very disappointed this morning Guy. I am gonna keep watching from sidelines. I had huge plans using banks of web and social conversations information collected regarding all things “climate change” that apparently pissed some persons or entity off; the crowdfunding and my intended information about those plans were increasingly gathering positive steam and becoming much too public. I have been definitively warned to back off. Whatever/whomever caused this reaction has way more power and sophistication than i could have imagined –having gained complete access to all my data, computers, and phone! I had the crap scared out me to say the least. I retracted all of my recent activist social postings and spent hours yesterday scrubbing all data regarding said. Please there is no need to reply. I am neutralized. My latest post/comments on your site had my email address in the body of that post. I would be most appreciative if you waxed that comment.”
“Best of everything to you.”
I was interviewed by Reverend Billy from the Church of Stop Shopping last Thursday morning. The interview will air Wednesday, 3 June 2015 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on WBAI radio in New York City. Catch it on the Internet by clicking here.
Amy is trying to connect with folks in San Francisco (or nearby) to bring Guy to the Bay Area. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
