Riot Chat is a Twitter-IRC-game remix. Riot Chat is an homage to kopimi (copyme), a symbol showing that you want to be copied, and a sandbox for an anti-surveillance communication protocol. Occupy was right: we need to get rid of super managers holding the world down. Since revolutions constantly fail in the streets, we must simultaneously continue to riot the Internet.
MANTAIN HARDLINE KOPIMI
The Chat and OmniHal
To talk to OmniHal, the chat bot, type /omnihal and then your message onÂ OmniHal has a young brain. Feed OmniHal with text in the top right corner. Change the topic of the chat by typing /topic and then the new topic
Help expand the territory of kopimi (copyme) pyramids by getting rid of eyeballs box. Click, move and communicate.
