As of August 1, 2015, fffff.at will remain online as an archive but will no longer be updated.
A lot of what I want to say about FAT closing has already been said by Magnus (and Peter, Frank & Rop, Geraldine, Rasmus and many others). The web has changed a lot in the last 8 years (so have we). Our adversaries have grown powerful and our methods outdated. Convenience is a hell of a drug, and we are in over our heads. The futch is going to be amazing! But for now it’s simply time for something new.
I have huge respect for all those involved in the group, and very fond memories of the laughs we’ve had and things we’ve built (hopefully some of this will continue under different banners). The excitement of F.A.T. closing is in seeing what its former members will do next.
(The views expressed here are only mine, and do not reflect a collective view of the group).
P.S. @NBC…. 8 years and really no complaints about the logo??!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
In May FAT Lab went to San Francisco – the center of tech and innovation – to celebrate the victory of government and commercial hegemony over the Internet and the total loss of personal freedom and privacy. We rolled out the red carpet for all of our friends, lovers, detractors, and benefactors to come celebrate our complete and total defeat.
