A word we see increasingly often. Expect it to be linked with social credit systems. Expect it to be tied with performance targets at your workplace. Expect it to be increasingly unavoidable.

London as game space. Hiding places. Escape routes. Headquarters. Enemy territory. Jumping fences.

I'm in Canary Wharf where there's a tap to refill your water bottle. You activate a reward for this good behaviour. Last time I was at the beach they had a similar system to encourage you to pick up litter

Been waiting for real life computer games. Imagine hundreds of mma trained, parkour guys with live streaming gopros. You tell em what to do with keyboard or voice commands, the more money you pay the more outlandish your requests can be. Pretty much inevitable imo

gta prophetized the car/bicycle/step-sharing economy that i loathe so much. you can act a cunt in the game and just take any transport unit whenever and wherever you want and when you're done with them you just dump them anywhere you want, in a park, in the middle of the street, in front of my door. who cares?
