So far I've largely successfully ignored the whole #NFT thing, though I agree that the ecological impact of many NFT approaches should of course _not_ be ignored.

What strikes me is how uncomfortable, culturally, we still are with abundance and the end of ownership. The idea of a society where humans can live dignified lives while building upon cultural works without constraints has a much harder time gaining ... currency. Capitalism overshadows our thinking and dominates our discourse.


re: NFTs 

@eloquence My definition of ownership seems somewhat stuck in the 20th century. It transfers very nicely to the 21st if only publishers would let it!

I'm happy perfectly owning a copy, even if it is digital on my harddrive...
