"Bodies upon the gears" - Mario Savio, Free Speech Movement activist.
"There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part! You can't even passively take part! And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels…upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop! And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!"

Frey's electric violin, named the Sound and Fury.
Rule 63 of the internet: For any given male character, there is a female version of that character.
"YOU ARE FREE" - Topiary, member of the LulzSec hacktivist group.
A poignant phrase that puts the power and responsibility in the hands of the reader.
The halo of code expands as he executes them.
The mask represents the layers of encryption that hides his true identity.

Sometimes all a child can do is dream.
A moment of fun.
