If there’s one thing I learned from humans, it’s that work is everything to us. It’s what all politicians promise us. It’s what family and friends complain about when the times are rough. It’s seen as an opportunity to prove ourselves useful in an uncaring world. It pays for the video games we buy, games in which we then pretend to work a different job.
7 Billion Humans is work, but it’s enjoyable work. It’s like that meeting where you get to brainstorm a crazy-enough-that-it-might-work idea with people you don’t hate, instead of that day you kept receiving emails because business people don’t know what “Reply All” does. I think fellow sapiens will be into it.
