Think of any network design where there's actually money involved. You're not making a copy. It's a mirror, like an app in apple story. 

If you don't have copies then your an have backward links and micro-payments. 

We're making unnecessary copies. It's a carbon sin. 

Not only paper is going away but the very abstract concept of the copy is going away (talking about an experience in the 70's with sponsor, Xerox)

The idea of the backward link was battered".

the truth is society can survive the destruction of the creative classes. But those are only the canaries in the coal mine. Vehicles can already drive themselves-- teamsters, taxi drivers.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
