Forget about Cyberpunk 2077, this is cyberpunk 2020. No exciting neons nor dildos, just plain corporate surveillance.

I wrote a very angry and completely ignored letter when my kids' school district switched from privately hosted Moodle to Google. Complete bullshit and inexcusable allowing this level of surveillance. And good luck trying to convince a young teen who knows everything that Google, FB, etc etc are not just surveillancing but influencing their behavior.
 
Grim... The irony is that there are high-quality open-source solutions available. Learning management system, like Moodle have been around for decades. They are mature products specifically developed for (higher) eduction that are extremely versatile.

Recently and now accelerated by the pandemic, we see these these high-end open-source platforms being gradually replaced by generic solutions offered in "freebie" mode by mega commercial providers. Offering half of the functionality and quadrupling gimmicks, while increasing corporate surveillance without giving meaningful control to educators and learners.

I think I need Cyberpunk 2077 to escape this shite... \rant over;
 
I’m not sure if you’re seriously considering playing Cyberpunk 2077 but please don’t. If you or anyone else want to spend that kind of money of cyberpunk entertainment, please consider the itch.io Be A Better Cyberpunk bundle.
 
Thanks for the link @Hypolite Petovan!! Never seriously played video games; okay except Basic Pong. I'll pass this link on to some to those trapped in hyper-consumerisms.
