Hey @mindlessobserver, to make the story even more dystopian, you could add in brain-computer interfaces and chip implants.

For example, I believe Elon Musk is behind developing a technology that's a "mesh" of electrodes which is injected into the skull that allows an interface with the brain.

There's also RFID chip implants already for authentication. While still uncommon, I believe there's a growing requirement by employers for them in the business world as well.

I don't put much stock in a Silicon Valley Technocracy when most of these companies are just one tech crash away from blowing over like a house of cards myself*.

*Twitter and Facebook are bleeding money every year; social media in general is hugely unprofitable and unstable and everything Google's done outside of their Chrome Browser and Docs program has been a huge financial failure they remind me a lot of Apple in the 90s.

Yeah and if they fold due to bad decisions, there isn't going ot be a bailout for those industries as another bailout would likely lead to rioting in the streets and people aren't exactly fond of big tech companies and won't cry if all those people get the pink slip.

I worry that investors in these companies see the loss and don't care. Not because they like throwing money away but because the money lost is the price of controlling some stake of the public perception, the overton window etc... Kinda like how Soros and co just dumped another 250 million into Vice media.
