[META-Resource] Compilation of the creative works we see in Mr. Robot

Last updated 09/03/2019 09:50
This post is a subreddit cumulative effort! A list of all Redditors (so far) are at the bottom of the post.
I thought maybe we could compile a list of all of the art, literature, music, movies, etc. that we see in Mr. Robot. Who knows, it may help with understanding, theorizing, and our enjoyment of an already enjoyable show.
I will add to this list based on the comments to the post.

[Table] IAmA: I am Wired contributor Joshuah Bearman, and I just published Part 2 of a 20,000-word story on the Rise and Fall of Silk Road. (I also wrote the story that became Argo, which was exciting.) I'm sure people have questions about Silk Road. AMA!

Questions Answers
Did you consider the trial fair? I did not follow it closely, but since all the evidence was digital, I read his mother Lyn stating something like "this evidence could have been planted on his computer". This seems a bit far fetched, but still: could it be true that Ross was set up? Good question. Yes, I think the trial was fair. My personal opinion is that Ross' lawyer mounted a peripatetic and somewhat ineffective defense. Not sure what a better defense would have been, but there were some clear missteps.
And again, the evidence was overwhelming. Court beat reporters and law enforcement professionals alike who got anywhere near that case or the trial all said that they had never seen such clear evidence of a criminal conspiracy.
The only way Ross is innocent is if the FBI planted it all. Which would have taken some doing. There was 1TB of information on his drive. Thousands of files. Hundreds directly about the Silk Road. Many of which were entered into evidence. The FBI would have had to fabricate them all -- including a diary full of intimate detail about Ross' personal life that they couldn't really have known -- for that argument to hold any water.
And, incidentally -- even if that were true, the defense said that would only explain the period he supposedly handed off Silk Road to someone else. They admitted he created it, and was running it at the end. Both of which also constituted the crimes he was charged with. So the multiple DPR theory and/or conspiratorial notion of the FBI planting evidence wouldn't even clear Ross of the charges.
You don't think that the fbi crossed any legal lines to retrieve the adress of Silk Road's servers, as it was rumored at some point ? You article states that no, but did you ever entertained the possibility ? Good question. And I don't think legal lines were crossed. For it to be illegal, the FBI would have had to break the functionality of the site -- the statutory definition -- and there's no evidence that occurred. Although yes, I entertained the possibility. As I described in another response, I see why there is so much speculation. It's a key point. And it relates to the much bigger and very important issue of electronic privacy. But the theorists about the hack don't suggest how the server was hacked. They just say that the server could not have been accidentally discovered. Everyone seems adamant about this, despite the fact that Ross himself wrote that he leaked the IP at times. And users posted publicly about that as well. Ross wasn't a programmer. The Occam's razor explanation is the one provided by the government, not the theorists of the hack: Ross made a mistake.
A more silly question, do you like the illustrations that Wired choose to illustrate your article ? And, yes, I do like the style. They're not quite the images I pictured while writing -- a little harder-edged than what materialized in my mind -- but then again I'm not the artist.
Occam's Razor says that the squirrely FBI description points to them hiding something. Maybe it was hacking. Maybe it was the NSA who found the server, and they are just using "parallel construction" to pretend they found it.
What motivated you to investigate and write a piece on the Silk Road? Was it just a case of supplying the demand? Was it pure curiosity at how such an enterprise rose to prominence? Did you have any political reasons for involvement? Well, I will admit I wasn't so hot on this story at first. Started working on it with Josh Davis, and it's more in his realm. But then, he started working on other things, I got these reporting breakthroughs, and then got sucked in to the piece, realizing along the way, that it had the makings of a non-fiction novella, which is how I tried to write it.
The story kept getting more interesting. The zeitgeist of it, and the cops and robbers element were a solid foundation -- but the emotional story was what drew me in.
The transformation of the characters and the ideas. From youthful vigor into cynical narcissism. From "do no harm" to "change the order to execute." Even though it played out in a technological realm, it felt like a deeply human story.
That was a very interesting read, thanks! What do you think of the role Variety Jones/cimon played in managing Silk Road and why do you think LE seem to be unable to arrest him? That's a good question. My story included Variety Jones in its longer version, when it was a 30,000 word (!) manuscript. But, it got complicated, for narrative purposes, to explain that relationship as space got tight. I mean, the story is already the longest Wired has ever published, and he just didn't have that much more room.
That said, Variety Jones/cimon clearly played an important role. He wasn't another user of the DPR handle, but he helped Ross conceptualize his role as leader. And he guided Ross toward the moral Rubicon of hiring a hit man. Variety Jones was the Silk Road's Rasputin, whispering into the Czar's ear.
Also like Rasputin, hard to take down! Not sure why he hasn't been caught. Although I suspect that he will eventually.
Did you ever follow up on Plural of Mongoose and Gypsy Nirvana? Sure thing. And no -- who are they?!!
Link to PoM was believed to be using the VJ nym on SR and used to work for Gypsy Nirvana. Ah -- that's such a great resource. Used it a lot. So dense. Part of my job was to make the narrative comprehensible, which meant cutting out some detail...
Can you explain the basis of your narrative of how Tarbell found the server? I realize that this is a controversial point. (Although even if the server was "hacked," it does not actually exculpate Ross.) And I understand why people are attracted to the theory of the hack. But no one has provided any substantiated account of what this hack would have been. There were no tools to "hack" Tor. It's all speculation, and theorizing. And yet, Ross wrote in his diary that he leaked the IP. Many people noted on Reddit that the Silk Road leaked the IP at times. Ross was not a professional programmer, as we know. The simplest explanation is that he made mistakes -- as he did many other areas of operational security -- and the feds got lucky and exploited them.
Did you ever consider the multiple-DPR narrative (as told by the defense) plausible? The Deep Web documentary by Alex Winter seems to follow that argument. So I am just wondering what makes you so sure that there was only ONE dpr who was, in fact, Ross Ulbricht? That's a GOOD QUESTION. I did consider that it was plausible, but that was before I saw the evidence. It is just overwhelming. Ross admitted to starting Silk Road. He was arrested while logged into the admin panel as /mastermind. He claims that in the meantime the site was run by someone else. But his own diary, chat logs, and various other records (like a spreadsheet showing Silk Road assets) found on his computer, show that he was running it the whole time.
Moreover, it was demonstrated at the trial that during the time Ross claimed that someone else ran Silk Road, he was receiving all of the bitcoin commissions from the Silk Road escrow account. So that makes it fairly impossible for anyone else to have been DPR.
off, this was one of the best pieces of journalism I've read in a long time. I couldn't wait for part 2! I read it this morning. What are your thoughts about Hollywood turning this into a blockbuster? THANKS! I appreciate it. Man, it was a beast to report and write. But rewarding to get a huge story like this into Wired, in two parts even.
As for a film adaptation, this story has been optioned. And efforts are underway. I was struck while writing this story how it hit the zeitgeist of our time, with drugs and entrepreneurialism and youthful idealism, and also underlined some deep, resonant themes about how we live now, mediated through the digital world, and fragmented identity -- all within the quick-moving narrative of a true crime case. I think that could make for a great movie. As I said somewhere in the story, sort of a true crime version of The Social Network.
Hello, thanks for the AMA. What do you think of the current U.S. drug laws? I think the War on Drugs is a failure. An expensive one. And broadly favor decriminalization. Although I haven't given real thought to whether that should extend to opiates, etc.
Also, the drug laws have led to massive incarceration, and helped destroy an urban generation. So, in that sense, I sympathize with that part of the Silk Road (and Ross') early philosophy. The problem, of course, was when that idealism turned into ideology. And it became a criminal enterprise rather than just a political idea.
1) I know a lot of media hype was placed upon Silk Road being an "Amazon for all things illegal". Have there been any confirmed cases of it selling anything other than drugs (such as counterfeit products, weaponry, or even being used to hire a hitman)? 1) Yes, the hype was a radical over-simplification. Silk Road was mostly drugs. And some odd ordinary items, like you'd find on eBay. The rules prohibited anything that would harm someone else, like identity theft stuff. (Although sometimes that stuff wound up on there anyhow.) There was no child porn. There were no guns, although DPR created the short-lived Armory, for that express purpose.
2) If DPR had more of a technical background (or at least been more careful to take care of all the security threats), do you think Silk Road would still be active today? 2) Yes. I think so. Had he known how big it would become, had tight op-sec from the beginning, and been a professional programmer, rather than learning along the way, Silk Road might very well still be operating, its servers undetected.
How has your personal life been affected by the publishing of these stories about Silk Road? What types of praise or criticism have you seen since publishing? Any legal action? I'm very interested in what happens to reporters lives and careers after exposing stuff like this. No personal effect, other than people seem to like the story! I did have to be very careful, obviously, with law enforcement info. You can veer close to subpoenas with reporting like this. I had never done that kind of reporting before. I also had to keep the confidence of sources from inside Silk Road. That was just as important to protect.
And for the most part, there's been little criticism of the story. I hope that's because it was so exhaustively reported! And fact-checked, and edited, and reviewed by lawyers, etc.
