I’ve launched this new website which [ YOU ] might want to check out. Like the name might imply, SKETCHING MONTRÉAL is all about going around my favorite city and sketching the places that inspire me. Currently, the site is still in BETA, but I figure it might be fun for some to check out. Plus I imagine getting some feedback might encourage me to sketch and upload more pieces. Anyways, here’s the link:
I might as well just get to it: I’m trans and I’ve changed my “nom-de-plume” from NICO.D. to Natacha #9. I’m not going to bore you with the details of my personal life, or what it’s like to be transgender ( Although, I might write a book about that someday… ) . Those who know me, know that this update is something I’ve been talking about doing for some time. I’ve been growing as a person, and I thought it was time I updated my moniker to something that reflected who I am with more accuracy.
So in this case, I am embracing the matrix. I am fully accepting the fact that on the internet I am not a person, I’m a number. Just some data-coded digitized numeral of person…
Hence, the name Natacha #9.
And conveniently enough, since I’m switching to a name that starts with the same consonant as the last one, I’m not changing my T4D signature. As you can see below:
NATNOTE: According to Wikipedia, the #9 embodies the highest level of changes. That works for me.

Maybe that’s a little direct, but why not? I think the modernization of our electoral system is extremely important, because IF we’re paying for it, We should have a say in it. I’m tired of politicians starting wars, and getting involved in morally questionable international situations in our names, at our monetary expense, and without any type of approval from us, the electorate. We have the technology for reform, and we can do better.
So yeah, that’s my pitch , these are my beliefs,and that’s why I want to recruit YOU! And getting recruited now-a-days isn’t about showing up at some church basement where you drink cold coffee while planning your next pamphlet-handout session. NO, this is the digital age, and if one is to promote digital democracy one should use the digital tools available. You’ve visited this page a few times, or bookmarked it, or possibly even subscribed to receive email updates, well, congratulations, you’ve been recruited! And if you talk about some of the ideas within this blog to a friend, or have sent an email with a link to it, or simply wrote a comment or clicked on the “like” button, well, thank you, you just did the cyber equivalent handing out pamphlets for the cause. And the movement for digital democracy does indeed require “knights-in-shining-armor-excellent-premium-specimens-of-humanity” such as yourselves as cyber-militants to have a chance at spreading the cause.
But hey, if you think that our current politicians and governments are doing a fine job, well, we want your opinion too. Everyone is welcomed to the debate. One cannot promote democratic reform without being willing to listen to both sides.
So, please consider this text as your digital draft notice, and please react according to the technological method you see fit. TEN-HUT!!
