january 15, 8:00pm, his questions
My date asks the workers questions in real-time based on the interaction at hand.
I describe the project to him and explain that he can use the workers as sort of wingmen, asking them questions and getting responses without my knowing the content of their communication. Is this a cover story, he asks. The FBI might concoct a story as strange as mine to misdirect attention, he tells me. I assure him it’s not and wonder why that is his first instinct. With this issue apparently settled, he’s interested and into the idea, but as soon as I turn on the camera he tenses up and gets nervous to think of everyone watching. This is something I’ve never felt, I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been working with and thinking about these technologies for so long, or because I feel some more control as the creator of the system. For me, the gaze of the workers seems to provide company and comfort. He asks one questions, but due to a technical issue the system isn’t working tonight. This on the fly coding I’ve been doing is catching up with me. Disappointing, as it seemed to be going somewhere interesting…
