I just saw a commercial on the Nickelodeon channel that gives me reason for renewed hope. It was a new accessory for Barbie. A contraption that when manipulated correctly, enables Barbie to construct a Play-Doh pizza. It was mesmerizing to watch. It made me think: today, Barbie makes Play-Doh pizza. Tomorrow, Taylor Swift shows up with a machine, with which she will construct, for me, a new Ferrari out of Yugo and Smart For Two pieces. Emerging technologies. What a time to be alive.
