Doling out the brutal truth that nothing you’re doing now actually matters, no one cares about it, nor will it be remembered.
I discuss why you never have to pay for music ever again, how people don’t realize or care about the amount of data they’re giving up online and what the real cause of our political system being broken.
In addition, I rant about the common misconception of Facebook’s “like” button, local retailers deserving to go out of business, and why casinos really want you to learn how to count cards. Plus I ask: what happens when we run out of Twitter handles a hundred years from now?
