A schizofrenic braindump, a stream of cyberpunk, post-cyberpunk, neopunk, futurism and sci-fi items, inspiration for my writing and game design. Usually managed by my trusty auto-posting AI residing in a possum-brain in my kitchen sink.

Go ahead and inject into my brainfeed via Twitter or Tumblr submit. Aslo, go ahead and challenge my AI with a question (warning, it bites).

Jobs in the military-industrial Complex

A selection of jobs currently on offer in the military-industrial complex, quoted from Wired:

Security firm Archimedes Global wants a “Cyber Counterterrorism Persona Targeting Analyst.” […] basically, it comes down to stalking people on Twitter

Data analysis firm Semantic Research […] is seeking a “Social Media Intelligence Analyst” to track “criminal activity … in support of active federal law enforcement investigations.” The six-figure income is more than cops make, too.

Private intelligence firm Pluribus International is seeking an analyst to “identify and counter foreign intelligence threats" […] "[Counter-intelligence] analytical experience involving Russia is preferred"

Spooky CIA contractor MVM, Inc. is looking for part-time Yiddish linguists. Today, Yiddish is mainly spoken by certain ultra-Orthodox Jewish sects and a handful of revivalists. Now the question is: What in the world is a CIA-linked firm trying to translate from Yiddish?

Apply for the job now, ask questions later. That’s the attitude CIA contractor MVM is looking for, as it recruits “teachers” for a little gig down in Mexico, teachers who also happen to be former U.S. law enforcement officers who speak Spanish, have at least 15 years experience in counter-drug intelligence work, and have knowledge of Mexican, Central American and South American “drug trafficking activities including personalities, organizations and trafficking routes”.

Defense firm Millennium Corporation is looking for a program manager. The specific job focuses on biological weapons, and a big part of it involves managing one or more contracts at more than 14 exciting locations including Russia, India, Africa, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan. The company also states it will provide you with a passport for travel.

Or an anonymous employer which is hiring a janitor with Top Secret clearance: 

TOP SECRET SECURITY CLEARANCE - CUSTODIAL – JANITOR – PEST DESPOSAL – PEST CONTROL – WASTE DESPOSAL – PAINTER – SNOW REMOVAL – INDOOR PLANT SERVICES – GENERAL LABOR – TRASH REMOVAL – SNOW PLOW – HOUSE PAINTING

Robocop viral marketing has begun. Not much to see yet, but I really like this trend of recent sci-fi movies and the viral marketing before them. Where is the same for Judge Dredd and Total Recall?

There’s a Total Recall and a Blade Runner at the source.
