Latest Post All the letters in our script are equal — but some are more equal than others

I believe that the possible consequences of technologies can be better told by putting them into context. By making them just a bit more mature and placing them just a bit further into the future, we can explore stories of everyday people and how their lives can be affected by the technologies we're creating today.

My alias is r3bl, and my goal is to present to you the technologies of today with the stories of tomorrow.

The web is filled with ridiculousness, mysteries, horrors, insecurities, and so much more. Behind all of that you can find us, people. We're shaping the web as we want it to be shaped, and it seems like this is how we want it to be. Why is that?

Technologies take its time to mature. Internet in the 90s, iPhone 4S, Internet Explorer 6, Windows ME... all these products were quite useful when they came out, but not as useful as the today's Internet, phones, browsers and operating systems.

That's why I like to think of current technological advancements by attempting to imagine their consequences a bit further down the line. I create fictional characters, place them in the near future, and tell their stories based on the tech we already have. While the stories and characters are fictional, the technology they're based on is real.

To put it in the words of Tom Scott , I like to tell stories from a future. Not the future, but a future.

Standing the test of time

Input.sh aims to stand the test of time. My aim is for the stories to be accessible to as many people as possible, following as many decentralized standards as it is feasible. You can find us on the fediverse and follow us via RSS feeds.

You can follow the feeds on Twitter and reddit as well. While I don't like centralized echo hubs, I've decided to support smallest evils I could find. We refuse to have a Facebook presence.
