Welcome back to the work week, kittens! The Cryptosphere is in recovery from the Cryptoflu, undoubtably a bioengineered virus deployed by a jealous competing website. At least, that’s what my PR tells me to say if the New York Times calls.

Lots to catch up on after a busy weekend of leaks, noodz, hacks, and giant international corporations pretending to be the good guy all of a sudden. Pour yourself a cup of something stimulating (making sure to shun that mysterious parcel delivery of “tonics 4 helth from ur fanz @ INTERNET which was surely my mistake) and enjoy!
