Pred.txt – The Selected Rants of Michael <predator> Carlton by Michael <predator> Carlton.

Published by Cat@alyst.

567 pages – English

Originally Published circa 2005.

Michael <predator> Carlton was an activist, scientist, hacker, explorer, coder and general outlier from Sydney. He may be remembered globally as the coder who wrote the majority of the original Indymedia site, used as an independant media clearing house at the watershed summit protest in Seattle in 1999. Indymedia, in turn, may be seen as the precursor to both the independant media ‘blogosphere’ and Wikileaks, and the Seattle summit protest as the forerunner to the present Occupy movement.

This text contains several of <predator>’s writings, including parody, articles on drain exploration, biology, molecular genetics, the work-in-progress of his PhD thesis. The key work included, however, is the online journal he kept throughout his battle with terminal cancer, taking the reader on a tour through Sydney’s ’00s activist, anarchist and underground scene. The work is far more moving and profound than can be summed up here.

Highly recommended reading.
