Some Modification Required

Did you know that Mark Zuckerberg is worried about income and wealth inequality?

I hope you brought your own laugh tracks or irony-o-meter.

You don’t have an irony-o-meter?  You’re in luck, because if you look hard enough on Ye Olde Internets, you’ll find a few places where they’ll show you how to mod any decent SWR/wattmeter and turn it into an irony-o-meter.

Seriously, though.  In spite of the pot-kettle-black nature of the matter, he’s right — Whether any of us want it or not, advocate it or not, think it’s a good idea or not, what he’s calling for will come to pass, and it will happen because there won’t be any other option, as artificial intelligence and cognitive stratification lock in.

Zuckerberg and now this.

I think it’s easy to explain:

SV has been one of the very biggest winners in the era of cognitive stratification. Trump’s win is making it dawn on a lot of people in “winner” enclaves like SV that there’s a whole lot of “downstairs” out there, both in terns of population and square miles. Therefore, noblesse oblige.
