Cool piece! But is it so simple? Isn’t “capitalism” going to “fight back”? For example, what neighborhoods will get mowed first?… at all? I agree that tech offers the possibility of rupturing capital’s stranglehold on power, and I love how you chart out an example of what this could look like, but I’m skeptical about assuming “efficiency” undercuts capitalism. More likely, we just won’t need to worry about mowing our yards as we pimp ourselves out in new ways.
Either way, thx for the piece!
