Visiting my old bedroom for the July 4 holiday, I decided to share some relics of my childhood and adolescence. Mostly it’s artwork and nerdy stuff, especially STUFFY CTHULU DOLL.
Over at The Nib, Susie Cagle put together a great comic laying out the problems with the “Sharing Economy,” but she’s too kind and even in her tone for some of us. “Sharing Economy” is basically a polite term for “Black Market,” the environment in which people living in poverty are so desperate for money that anything of value becomes a commodity.
As Cagle rightly establishes up front, this new economy isn’t really about “sharing” at all, it’s about selling, treating human beings as products and a base of users as inventory. Users often fail to notice that the kinds of things they’re doing, like getting in the car with an unlicensed, uninsured taxi driver or letting a complete stranger sleep in their house, would seem both crazy and illegal if it weren’t through an app.
So I got thinking about some approaches to the Sharing Economy that I haven’t seen yet, and came up with three that seem particularly ripe.
Incidentally, I love the idea that when you sell an organ through Carvr, they send an unlicensed, uninsured surgeon to perform the transplant. It’s okay though, because you get to post your review afterward.
Yes, in fact, the Ku Klux Klan, a domestic terrorist organization, has announced they will now be the neighborhood watch in Fairview Township, in central Pennsylvania. One has to assume they saw what George Zimmerman experienced and got jealous.
The Klan has also stepped up recruitment efforts nationwide, just another reminder that we now live in post-racial America and, as 5 out of 9 Supreme Court Justices have informed us, racism is over.
We had a pumpkin decorating contest at work for Halloween. This was my team’s contribution, which happened to emerge victorious:
A group of us also took it on ourselves to “Halloween-ify” the hand-drawn chalk cityscape in our office, which was a blast. No less than ten people contributed with their own little touches–bats, fog, a creepy moon, hands reaching out of graves, and so on. I can’t show you the whole thing, but below are a few select details:
Those are Dementors circling the Empire State Building, by the way. I don’t know why I drew King Kong climbing the Freedom Tower, but maybe it’s because he hasn’t perfected the Patronus Charm yet.
I also drew the skeletal horse, which I am very proud of–even though it doesn’t look so much like a horse skeleton.
…and I would not mind at all a Muppets Game of Thrones. I imagine Fozzy would make a rather smashing Robert Baratheon–and Guy Smiley as the Kingslayer. But who to cast as Tyrion?
