The Direction of Technology

My Futurist Prediction of the Day:

– Someone will discover how to use unused brain power for computing

– unskilled labor will lease excess brain capacity for Blockchain Mining

– the rewards from the mining will essentially become the universal basic income everyone is so up in arms about.

Those who are skilled will possibly use more brain power and get less from mining rewards but make up for it in the value of their skilled labor and vice versa.

Basically we’ll turn into a human server farm to process our growing demand for application processing. Technically this would be a free Market egalitarian society, I need to go all Robert Heinlein and write some sci-fi books.
