… “It’s a future in which our homes are never again exclusively personal spaces,
but also, via high-speed digital connectivity, our schools, doctor’s offices, gyms, and,
if determined by state our jails. For many of us, those same homes were already turning into
our never-off workplaces and our primary entertainment venues before the pandemic”
… “This is a future in which, for the privileged, almost everything is home delivered,
either virtually via streaming and cloud technology, or physically via driverless
vehicle or drone, then screen “shared” on a mediated platform. It’s a future that
employs far fewer teachers, doctors and drivers.”
