Estrin Tide's Metaphysical Hacking Tutorial

The demands of a hyper-employed, 21st century lifestyle have led Estrin Tide to feel frustratingly inadequate. She’s a 9-to-5 library IT employee and a 5-to-9 transhumanist, YouTube vlogger, forum moderator, gamer, and synth-loving New Age hacker who sleeps hyper-polyphasically (15s every 3m!) to keep up with it all. In her Metaphysical Hacking Tutorial, Estrin teaches how you can mentally tap into the subtle energies of WiFi in just a few easy steps.
