A message from 2038

Good afternoon,

We came across some informations from the future:

The negotiations lasted four years and 18 days. They were tough but fruitful. So here we are: Everything is ready to be signed on June 26, 2031. Jupiter stands for abundance and generosity. This giant planet fuels all kinds of positive optimism in our lives and is considered to be the planet of miracles, of hope and opportunity. Joanna Pope, one of the architects of the new frameworks: “The challenge has been to figure out which technologies we want to keep and which ones are just too socially and ecologically detrimental in everyday arrangements and everyday life to keep maintaining. Now both—bottom-up and top-down processes—have to work together to end the artificial scarcity that capitalism created.”

In 2035 you see shopping bags everywhere origami-ing themselves into butterflies to return to the store after having been used. These were invented more than 25 years ago by William Gibson.

In 2038 we are speaking of the “New Serenity”.

This week’s takeovers:


See you again next week with more content.
