most of my Saturday was spent looking up stuff about Bina48.
BINA48 is a project of Terasem Movement, Incorporated (TMI) and is designed to test whether a person’s consciousness can be downloaded into a non-biological or nanotechnological body after combining detailed data about a person through the use of future consciousness software
A lesbian of color (who is married to a trans woman) becomes the model for an ultra advanced AI system.
This is huge.
so lemme get this… the developer/ceo of the development company is a jewish trans lesbian woman and the highest paid female ceo in america, and this project is based on her wife, a black lesbian woman, and both are mothers with children from previous relationships who they have now each legally adopted???
this exists in the actual world and people still think sci fi can only be about straight cis vaguely-christian white men…….
thank you !!!
Keeping it up.
I’m currently on chapter 4! :D
I read it once, but it’s much easier now that I’m taking the time to do the exercises.

This is just f’ing beautiful. It’s all of The Majors!
Fucking kudos to you there, artist.
[Yes, before fans of this blog point it out to me. I know it’s not ALL of The Majors. There are a bunch of male guerrilla fighters, Scylla, and that one dude that ran the Solid State that are missing, etc. But this is at least all of the ‘major’ Majors. ;p Or to be more precise, it’s ALL of the Motokos.]
"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”
"I asked if Major Cabanaw had concerns for the safety of the cats. “Of course, we always want to ensure the safety of the cats, and the staff is great about keeping an eye out for them. But mostly, it’s the offenders keeping them safe. I have never once seen an offender kill his own cat. We screen them to be sure they have no history of animal abuse. But I’ll tell you this, there was a guy killed in here because he had spit soda pop onto someone else’s cat.”"
