“Unadulterated rage expressed as a story. I love it. "What if I told you that this decaying corporate aesthetic (for which, among other things, Meta spent 10 billion in 2021) is not the problem, but a symptom of our terminal condition?"

and

"Beneath the glossy pages of their reports that outline the opportunity for total vertical and horizontal business expansion, lies an unmistakable sense of emptiness filled with nostalgia. We are compelled to put on our headsets and escape in a high-fidelity digital world, uncannily similar to ours. In this world, cartoonish faces with features reduced to a minimum atop floating torsos and disembodied hands (we can’t accurately render full arms in commercially available VR machines) engage in all too familiar activities: playing chess or tennis, standing in front of landmarks, concert going, or otherwise socializing."

def getting my vote - even if I have to remove 1 from the others.” - HackerNoon Editor


@btcread, you’ve got the longest appreciation note from one of our most BRUTALLY HONEST editors! You have won 86 OCT Tokens.

Congratulations to all the winners. We will contact you all shortly. Shoutout to our sponsor Octopus Network, and the HackerNoon community for making it a BIG success.
