This is great.

Can I ask, which character do you identify with more? I ask because I find myself drawn to the old man, and I wonder if that's due to your (authorial) influence on my interpretation, or due to my own unshakable affinity for physicality, analog technologies, etc.

damn dude i'd probably still say the old man--

i don't want a fucking computer in my skull. nah. tough thing is--what is too far? if i woke up blind tomorrow, and doctors said they could restore my vision with some implant, could i say no? i dunno man. cyborg me would be hella weird.

but looking back on this makes me cringe a little. kind of overt. gah! i'll be saying the same thing about what i'm writing today, a year from now.
