..Is happening so fast it is kind of scary.
Are we really citizens of one particular country anymore? I can talk to anyone around the globe instantly. We can even physically be anywhere within a day's time, but within a few years as the virtual/augmented reality boom occurs, we won't even need to physically go places to experience them.
What about outsourcing jobs? Soon enough it seems, companies will barely need to hire from within the country at all. I think this could be a really good way to bring the whole globe up at an even speed rather than having uneven pockets of growth, hegemony, and exploitation. I could be wrong about that, who knows how it will turn out.
What will happen to our political leaders and figureheads? What sort of control will they be able to exert when what was once a fairly well defined country is now a matter of principle?
One interesting and perhaps taboo place this is also occurring is in the bedroom. We are quickly transitioning to the point where everyone is an amateur pornstar... nothing is holding people back from setting up their own livecam channels, uploading their own pictures and videos, etc., and this is indeed what we are starting to see on places like reddit, xhamster, and other sites I don't know about lol. I think the conventional wisdom is that looking at porn is not cheating... but is watching livecams and actually being able to chat with the people in real time? And what will happen as the trend continues?
Things to think about and discuss.
