My job is to grep the web and know when big stuff is about to go down. To predict specifics, I need purer, more focused inputs. If you’re willing to toss me some details over the wall, I’ll output predictions as soon as I have them. We’re all A^Hanonymous here, so let’s exchange a little passphrase. When I ask for it, just tell me “To condense fact from the vapor of nuance.”

Why, you might ask, are a cholera outbreak, a tragic plane crash, and a radioactive contamination event the sorts of things trending right now? The shortest of answers: I don’t know yet. There’s probably not a literal rotten pump or radioactive container bouncing around the world at the moment, but a high toxicity corporate entity or idea that can subvert just by proximity? Some fatal mishap between humans and technological tools?

Probably.
