After listening to this episode the guys over at the incredibly awesome podcast Robot Overlordz responded to our take on a future without ownership. In episode 211 – #INTERNETFAIL they outlined some great reasons why the loss of ownership can be problematic.
We picked up the thread in Episode 012- Brownership (pronounced Bro-ner-ship, not Brown-er-ship as if our collective boat is brown, just not brown enough…we can still go browner!) and continued the conversation.
The Robot Overlordz responded to our response, the way conversations happen or so we’re told, in a very thought provoking blog post titled Reflections on Ownership, Access, and Control. Check it out. It’s well reasoned and passionate.
At the end of the day it seems like we agree that we don’t want individuals or companies to be able to mess with our stuff, no matter what form that “stuff” takes. Feel free to leave us a comment here, in Episode 12’s notes, or in sky writing above your favorite beach and let us know what you think about the future of ownership.
