When anything is anything & anywhere is anywhere

Only watched the opening ceremony. Behind all the noise about communism being great, the state guaranteeing everyone's future, the individual being worthless, how many LED's child laborers can solder, U realized if U gave any of those smiling performers a 1 way ticket out of China, they'd be out of there in 17 seconds.

Some of the visuals were faked, but most of them were probably real. If U focused on just the visuals, U realized how fast & far technology is moving & how it's heading in a common direction. Eventually there's going to be no correlation between form & function, placement & position of anything. Anything can be a display, a phone, or a building right now, but in the future anything can be anything.

Your government recently mandated Calif* houses to be worth $1 million. What is your government to do in a future where anything can be a house and a house can be anywhere? Workers will rent cardboard boxes for $100,000 a month but never know it. They'll plug into robots thousands of miles away which live in mansions & totally replace their sensory input with the robot's.

It's a tough future for a living thing to follow. We humans count on physical objects having definite functions & physical places having definite locations.

What to do when anything can do anything & anywhere can be anywhere? How do you retain any kind of achievement?

Speaking of technology, finally updated with all our stuff linked from the mane page, a new version of Cinelerra which can do all the motion stabilization you've been seeing on the Jack Crossfire show.
