Perhaps I need a sockpuppet. I could work him with my left hand and he would follow me around and sing praise whenever I open my mouth or post something online. I can’t shower *myself* with praise. No way! That would be gross. But a good sockpuppet? No one will know it’s me. And everyone will hear all the great things he says about me and will join right in. More and more people will pile on. The likes and hearts and follows will explode. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be propelled to the winner-take-all circle! Yes! That’s it, a sockpuppet.

This is now a Non-fungible Token (NFT) of an acrylic on canvas painting I created that was stolen from me in 1984. The original has not been recovered. This digital image is a copy of a photograph made before the theft, and I have edited and improved it myself with Photoshop, making the digital image unique. It has been stored on IPFS at ipfs/QmTgVWECtoYgLZj7m59LKgGST8sfqUdJ2Y9tJuGBPxfwDf/image.jpeg. The NFT was recorded on Ethereum at transaction 0x2b6559731eb9a4773af23aaf18de4743c20ee1be90c7e11c1489d13e2934ad77.
