Melania’s idea of a link - Il link secondo Melania. Competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing"

Written by Sergio Donato

A story selected in the fourth "round" of the competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing". Available in English and Italian languages.
Melania's idea of a link. “There’s nothing like craving to cause somebody’s downfall. Senses are redirected towards his craving with a hyperactivity that he thinks he can control, while the truth is that he’s falling prey to an animal urge.”
Melania said that to persuade her customers, then she added: “You are trying to take that man where he doesn’t want to go. You’ll only bore him to death and barely manage to tickle his intellect. Your attempts have been treated as spam, trash...

Deontologia. Competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing"

Written by Marica Petrolati

A story selected in the fourth "round" of the competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing". Available in Italian language.
Deontologia. Il Dogana aveva sempre vissuto d'espedienti. Arrivato ai sessantacinque anni, non gli riusciva di ricordare un solo giorno della sua vita in cui non avesse pensato a come trarre fraudolento profitto dalla dabbenaggine altrui.
Ne aveva combinate di belle, il Dogana. Finché era stato un aitante giovanotto, era riuscito a raggirare parecchie rappresentanti del gentil sesso, sfruttando, al bisogno, anche le gambe lunghe e muscolose in fughe rocambolesche. Grazie al sorriso franco e all'aspetto rispettabile, che riusciva a mettere insieme quando la situazione lo richiedeva, aveva infinocchiato anche scaltri uomini d'affari...

Written by Antonella Alessandrini

A story selected in the fourth "round" of the competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing". Available in Italian language.
La sua immagine allo specchio. Quando lo rividi, quasi non lo riconobbi. Non era poi così diverso, eppure negli occhi aveva una luce strana, che non ricordavo. Mentre mi parlava dei vecchi tempi, qualcosa non andava, non mi sentivo a mio agio. Mi aveva dato appuntamento proprio lì, in quella via, dove tutto era cominciato. Cercavo di convincermi, in fondo con il tempo le persone cambiano, invecchiano. E di tempo ne era passato davvero tanto, da quando, poco più che adolescenti, ci eravamo conosciuti...

The Ivorian - L'Ivoriana. Competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing"

Written by Matteo Trincas

A story selected in the fourth "round" of the competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing". Available in English and Italian languages.
The Ivorian. The story runs that “Italy is in big pain”, this is what Corrado Guzzanti, about 20 years ago, used to say when acting as "Quelo", the false diviner that blamed to be delivering the word of a "New God". "Gott ist tot" this is what Nietzsche used to claim too... as also Guccini within his homonym song. Each epoch had its slump, most likely because of all of people, politics and power. They all do dismiss every wish for a better future...

Non è come sembra. «Ma non basta bloccarle la carta? Chiamare la banca? Questa storia è ridicola. Siete degli incapaci!» sbottò l’uomo esasperato.
L’ispettore cercò di mantenere la calma. L’uomo davanti a sé aveva tutte le ragioni per essere irritato, però gli stava antipatico lo stesso.
«Non si tratta solo della carta di credito. Hanno rubato l’identità digitale di sua moglie. C’è qualcuno che si fa passare per lei a livello informatico.»...

Written by Cristina Giuntini‎

A story selected in the fourth "round" of the competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing". Available in Italian language.
Questa è una cyberrapina. Successe circa due mesi fa.
Erano le dieci di sera, e mi accorsi di non avere ancora acceso il PC. Non che mi mancasse il solito vagabondaggio serale fra i post di Facebook alla ricerca di un commento o di un “Like” di qualche conoscenza virtuale, ma decisi che sarebbe stato il caso di scaricare almeno la posta, per evitare l’intasamento del mio account. Fra pubblicità di negozi, agenzie di viaggi online, concessionarie di auto e opere pie di vario tipo, sicuramente non avrei trovato neppure un messaggio interessante: ragione di più per eliminarli subito tutti...

Written by Maria Elena Poggi‎

A story selected in the fourth "round" of the competition "Contraband Pixels & Texts, or... make stories, not phishing". Available in Italian language.
La dogana delle illusioni. Seduto al suo tavolo da lavoro, il Guardiano avvertiva una sensazione di torpore invadere i suoi muscoli.
«Aiutami...».
Gli era parso di sentire una voce.
Era ormai vecchio e stanco. E solo: nel Salone, uno schermo enorme, lattescente, era la sua unica compagnia.
La Dogana dormiva.
Il Guardiano si alzò, con lentezza.
Si avvicinò ad una delle feritoie disseminate lungo le pareti e il panorama gli mozzò il fiato, ancora una volta.
«Aiutami...»...

L’omino con la testa a forma di pera. C'era una volta un paese a forma di stivale. Si avete capito bene: a forma di stivale. E in questo paese c'era una regione a forma di spicchio di luna. In questa regione un piccolo borgo, una frazione per la precisione, dal nome Dogana.
A Dogana viveva un omino non più tanto giovane, ma non ancora vecchio, con la testa a forma di pera. È strano come in questa storia ogni cosa abbia la forma di qualcosa d'altro, ma non divaghiamo...

Nella vita degli altri. L'idea. Quella giusta. Gli comparve davanti una notte. La tredicesima, per la precisione. La tredicesima notte di reclusione.
Se doveva stare in quella stanza, senza sapere per quanto e senza avere prospettive, almeno avrebbe potuto rendere fruttuoso quel tempo.
Si alzò e accese il computer. Si collegò a Facebook e cominciò a passare in rassegna i suoi cosiddetti amici. Chi erano davvero quelle persone?...

Fishmaster. In the morning of March 12 Andreas Briggle swallowed an egg. Not for breakfast: despite its appearance, it was a hi-tech storage device which could contain terabytes of data, shielded from most types of scanners. How ironic, Briggle thought, that in a world where data could travel dematerialized through the web, one was compelled to bodily carry it, in order to smuggle it out of the Safe Area...
