Clickford Note (frm. Vlob): I Told You So [Life Update]

I had published the Hopeless Autistic works, and as the system recovers from the pandemic, and I fear and loose sleep about my future. The Titanic didn’t just hit an iceburg… Shuttle Columbia didn’t just fall from outer space… Enron didn’t just randomly declare Chapter 11… so a special needs system has cracks before it falls apart too! I have given you all warning bells and it’s up to you to take action and help make change!

This superimposed against the changing business model of the Media Services as well as the cancelation of producing The Zoo. This shouldn’t been a surprise to anyone who had consumed my content in 2021, because as I did the Rewind 2021, I had seen a change in myself; that if anyone is surprised to had seen me almost loose-it just two years into the pandemic crisis would be so arrogant and dismissive.

The FCC’s Brutal Regulation to Enterprise

Should the Internet, regulating Facebook (Messenger) be next?

If I am in a desperate situation, I should be able to type “911” on my Messenger screen and connect to my local Public Safety Answering Point because Facebook knows exactly where I live right?

At this point your desk phone will most likely get more punishment than say WMUR-TV Manchester getting their license nixed in the coming year.

The Federal Communications Commission is pushing another mandatory obedience to 9-1-1 call tracing, and if you thought Kari’s Law was bad, wait till you hear Ray Baum’s Act. This forces anyone with a phone system (like a PBX or a Key system) to provide detailed information. If you are a small creative office with no weird cubicle numbers, you may need to add C1021524BC-AD at the way I’ve read the law. Some enterprises are on the 3rd floor in a different suite, the reason why the telco carriers do not have this in their 9-1-1 database that is only activated when a 9-1-1 call is placed and forwarded to the PSAP is amusing.

Hell if I don’t give PayPal my specific location for a package, may not get the Buyers Victimization Program Protection! (Oh sorry “Buyer Protection Program”.)

In the days where little Gen. Colon Powell’s little kid, Michael ran the FCC, the spirit of Voice over IP and 9-1-1 routing was a hands off approach. In reality, prior to the Kari Hunt incident of 2013, they were even more closer to having general consensus on how 91-1-1 calls on private property would work.

(And when you prefer the boys club like him today… that shows you how extreme the FCC has lost it, refusing in the spirit of protecting America’s radiowaves.) The problem is that the younger Powell running the FCC under a Republican admin, like the GOP in general, was the party of yesteryear. When Kari’s Law and Ray Baum’s Act had been developed, a political style was developing: White Grievance. Another obs was narcissism (not taking personal responsibility of situational awareness), entitlement (the expectation “9-1-1” should be the only number even in a private property), and scapegoating (the PBX/MLTS was the one that really killed Kari) not a man of which previous accounts described their relationship as “estranged” and the motel meetup was “arraigned” and the brutal murder of “Hunt-Dunn” (Cisco refers her as hyphenated surname) was never the fault of the killer, of which local media reported he got 99 years in prison and despite The Spirit of Texas’ strong views on capital punishment, he’ll be locked up instead.

But… Multi Line Telephone Systems, Key Telephone Systems, whether they are digital or TDM or VOIP based, were the ones that killed Kari and delayed in saving the live of Ray Baum.

The parent company of Kensington should make millions and billions to put their signature “locks” on many of the VOIP phones not to be snatched, but ensure that 9-1-1 will get the right room, cube or desk space because not all phone systems have the ability to be user based not extension based. For instance Avaya treats extensions numbers as users, so if a person “hot desks” they don’t have to literally move their phone, whereas Cisco, Polycom and other hard phones have the extension number hardened to the phone device itself which makes moving cubes easier, but the information that may identify them in a time of crisis harder. But Avaya was the Official Sponsor of Kari’s Law and they declared bankruptcy a year before it got signed into law by POTUS Trump and company has never been the same since.

It’s sad to see chauvinism in technology worsen over time like how a narcissistic creep that don’t age really well. This is the FCC. And I am not holding my breath for the FCC to go back in their lane and rip WMUR-TV’s license once and for all with their alleged news product Newsnine of which they spend more time acting like a fascist media outlet and never covering the stories in their City of License. Or hell WZID (FM) focusing on the 51% of the menopause to death female audience and indirectly boxing men in the 603. But talking about broadcast media, should be in it’s own post instead.

I admit… I misunderstood Generation X

Knowing a lot of people even though I am quirky… years later I am now confessing how I misread Generation X. My executive summary of said generation was for many years…

The stereotypical “latchkey generation” the generation of toughness, resiliency, throw the toys literally upon turning 18, but get rebellious in their 20s, return to adulthood by the 30s. Massive consumption of MTV when it aired music. They related to their real-personas when The Real World aired on the same said network. They created the first wave of the dot-coms and the related technologies.

 

Now I stand corrected and now my executive summary is this:

These people, roughly 50 to 60 million Americans live in the past, 1980s and their Silent Generation parents from the 1950s. They believed in the spirit of civil rights, but assumed we lived in a post divided culture. Despite said generation being the creators of the first wave of the Web and related technologies, they are in the minority, many GenXers are scared of technology, they are scared of science, history and other skillsets because many didn’t go or finish college. As they age, they brag about their pride of simplicity, admiring it as if it’s the present. They are “raw” in personality and language over being “real”.  They insult Millennials of acting immature, but Gen X are the most commonly aged people known as having “Karen moments” that makes for good YouTube porn. They have entitlements their kids are going to be happy and healthy, and when they don’t, they blame Big Pharma and refuse to accept neurological differences of their autistic children. They refuse to admit they are overprotecting their offsprings to such an obscene level. Gen Z is blamed for everything second to Millennials, but whose the real grown up?

Lastly I would end with

People of Generation X age appeared to be the average groups of people creating criminal acts on the 6th day after the New Year at The Capital basically canceling out maturity, emotional intelligence and extreme, but malignant narcissism – an extreme that can’t be defined in the Boomers and Millennials combined.

This is going to be long 40 to 50 years as the loudest minority continue to make ruckus to civic engagement. You want to rather live under a rock instead.

Is Gen Z’s At Fault for Feeling Isolated by Culture and Tech?

Gen Z (the folks born after 1995) are totally connected than any other generation before, even if they are not technically ept in terms of the components of computing, networking etc.

This is also the same generation that has a higher suicide rate than previous generations, and despite their parents (the infamous GenXers whose pride was adulting at an earlier age); GenZers are not driving or getting a car right at 16.

GenZers are also exposed to the same GenXers, the same parents who are the Karen-types; and this generation are extremely overprotective. These people are anti-progressives, they are anti maskers, anti vaxxers, anti science, and anti anything after 1989.

L&R Hour: On The Ayottes, The Clickfords, and How they KNOW NOTHING!

As Jimmy Cramer said in August of 2007 “THEY KNOW NOTHING!”. That can be easilly applied to my paternal family, the Ayotte clan and how they knew nothing about me, my autistic condition, the lack of communication (on their end), etc. Originally streamed live on November 9th, 2021
