future economy

social media replaces professional sports and professional musicianship as pig trough careers, unskilled workers get replaced by robots, and computer nerds continue to get highly paid. cable tv slows and eventually collapses. 2600 magazine declares bankruptcy after chain stores learn to secure their computer kiosks (i got into the windows desktop on the stop & shop autodeli the other day!). stop and stop autodeli will be fully robotized; delicatessens replaced by huge industrial robots reminiscent of the kiosks used to transform humans into cybermen in dr. who. they will always cut it thin when you ask them to cut it thin, unlike hundreds of thousands of newly-unemployed high school students and 50yo trainables. these people will roam the streets in slack-jawed amazement at images beamed into their skulls by Google Lens, smart contact lenses with wicked intense augmented reality mental clusterfuck. life becomes a giant game. achievements are unlocked. top ten lists suddenly seem important. all it takes is one social media celebrity pizza guy to discount pizza guy wages by $3 because hopes and dreams fill up the slack. people sigh and say: this would work better if google didn't keep all the cash. the fuck do they do with it anyways?
