Trying to track down Jim Groom and Emre5807

Emre5807’s Twitter update said it all. He had captured Jim Groom. Surely it can’t be true? I felt that there was only one thing for me to do. I had to track down Emre5807 and rescue Jim. I could always look for Kim Droom later. I had seen Giulia Forsythe’s excellent recommendation of the industry standard hacker tool Hacker Typer. This is exactly what I needed to find Emre5807. This video documents the final moments before discovering the whereabouts of Emre5807 and Jim Groom. After that, everything went a little hazy.

This is my weekly archive of the work I’ve produced for The Daily Create (TDC). The Daily Create (TDC) 01 – A photograph that features a repeating pattern I took this photo very quickly.
