Andrew Payton's Summary

Once my words were beamed across electromagnetic waves and printed on tree pulp. Now they are media neutral things, filtered through the unforgiving prisms of cloud computing, social media and augmented reality. Soon they will become something else. But call it anything you want. I just want to make stuff. I don’t want to be ready for Web 3.0. I want Web 37.0.

I want to fly though highly targeted holograms in my glorious hovercraft, sufficiently nourished in the burning ozone dawn. I want to wander around the fourth moon as my nano pet whispers to me about the new sale at Sak’s. I want to mind feed the masses while they critique, alter and improve upon my thoughts as they are beamed to an unsuspecting and grateful universe.
