Some bad news for folks who are fans of #uMatrix. It's being archived and no longer being developed :

We've had problems getting new players 'cause the places we used to advertise are all going offline, so if y'all could help me out with a boost that'd be much appreciated

"The Social Dilemma" has completely popped and gone viral:

#3 in Top Movies in U.S. across Netflix.
#6 in Top 10 across all Netflix categories.

Best way you can help spread the word: Host a screening with friends who are less likely to hear about the film.

The film makes concepts of #surveillancecapitalism and #privacy infringement we all know about, accessible to a broader public, in a way they feel impact personally.
