Virtual Reality (VR) — Get Your Fearless Fainting Couch Ready. You'll need it.
This morning I watched CBS Sunday Morning Show and marveled how close over the horizon VR really is for laying waste to your sense of equilibrium.
Just see how long it's going to take you to realize you're about to be pancaked to the floor into a quivering "Don't Taze Me Bro" frame of mind.
For some time I've thought FutureBook Projects (FBP) would end up as content published on VR, AR and eventually hologram devices. All accessed via a Blockchain Smart Contract.
The difficult problem is figuring out what to do between now and the time when software is available for Creators to do the above.
Create the all-media content!
Part of solving this problem is trying to understand what will be the best combination of Text + Graphics + Audio-Video + Links + Social Media to deploy as Creators create their stories.
The above is always on my mind as I continue to build Go2Future. How much video, text and graphics should I use for FBP content. It's not an easy.
Look at this excerpt from an article on January 2, 2017 at the SingularityHub
Decentralized Peer-to-Peer Networks
"I'm most excited about the future of decentralized peer-to-peer (p2p) networks. As we've seen with the sharing economy, it may be all too easy for a small startup to siphon the wealth of a local community sharing resources amongst themselves.
We can use technologies like blockchain, cryptocurrencies and BitTorrent to redefine value by integrating blockchain-based democratic decision making, decentralized peer-run organizations, and organizational principles from platform cooperativism.
Ultimately, as this trend continues, we'll have an opportunity to regenerate local economies with the resources already available instead of extracting value where there isn't much to begin with."

Do you think that Ol' Fuss will listen?
That's all I need to say this day,
