I want to create a database of the entire globohomo network. I have been working on this idea for long enough to know that this is something I have to finish, no matter what it takes. But to be honest, the scope of this project exceeds my own capacity; frens, I need help.
I posted about this idea and my work on 4pol but yesterday they banned me for a month. This reminds me of a pattern that happened on Faggotbook which ultimately lead me to abandon that platform. And so too, I think it's unironically over. I think I'm done with 4pol. But let's get back to the topic at hand.
The idea for project /polfren/ is based on a website that existed around the year 2005 and was called "Political Friendster". >Political Friendster is a parody of the social network Friendster. It allows a visualization of the connections between players in the political game. This site has absolutely no affiliation with the real Friendster.
Unfortunately, the site was taken down by glowies because OP was a faggot and didn't build the platform to be glowie resilient. In his defence though, back then the glowie meme wasn't well established yet and he probably couldn't have predicted that his project would become a success.
Luckily, the data from the original Political Friendster database can still be downloaded from archive.org and this is precisely what I did. I then simulated the data and plotted it into a graph. The result was astounding (pic rel).
I remember back then around 2005, I was a depressed youngfag who was dipping his toes in 911 conspiracy theory. It was my first Red Pill and I think it took me 2 years before I was able to accept the truth. When I now look back at the data from Political Friendster, I can see the memory of the collective thinking process from that phase of internet history. It really is a snapshot in time. And all of this imposed the dawning of a feeling onto me that is hard to describe, but it's almost as if something has come full circle, and that something new is aching to be born.
So in honour of Political Friendster and to express my love for /pol/ and everything it represents, I have decided to simply name this project "/polfren/". I hope you would agree. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
