Copy Machine

highly recommended lazy weekend ausklangstext: Kevin Kelly’s Better Than Free

The internet is a copy machine. At its most foundational level, it copies every action, every character, every thought we make while we ride upon it.

Our wealth sits upon a very large device that copies promiscuously and constantly.

When copies are super abundant, they become worthless.
When copies are super abundant, stuff which can’t be copied becomes scarce and valuable.
When copies are free, you need to sell things which can not be copied.
