Static Interference

The scroll of the screen continued even after she closed her eyes.  What made it worse was that it wasn’t the IM chat with her friends that was invading her mind’s eye, but adverts from the side of the screen.  Why were these annoying posts, which she generally scrolled past without a second thought, so prevalent in the dark of her room?

Forget about the subliminal messages in the movie theatres of the 1970s trying to sell you Coca Cola, no this was something newer and even more invasive.  Rustext, developed by scientists working for Putin’s security services to sway political outcomes in the West, was now for sale to commercial interests and they were bought by corporations with a fervored gusto.   And why shouldn’t they, seeing that the sales emails sent to marketing departments around the world were laced with Rustext?

Now that’s static, I mean strategic, interference.
