I had written down on my notes:
physical technology, where there could be beggars hoarding over small bits of insignificant information. This gave a worth to information, which in theory would become the only thing valuable in the new world
We discussed the possibility of how people would power the new technology in the future. we thought up that some people who dont have access to the newest technology would have to depend on other means... such as the cat lady who had her 100 cats on treadmills... or whatever.
In response to what you wrote about drugs, we were thinking about snuff and also injection. I personally think this would add a dark undertone and re-emphasize the fact that technology has become mind-altering and changes your perception of reality, just like drugs do.
We talked about how in today's society if you steal someones credit card, you steal their identity, and can in essence destroy a person.
And finally, we talked about making a pilgrimage to the "sacred" site where the original internet, was created. (I forgot what that was called, dot-something?)
