Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier – review

Who Owns the Future? by Jaron Lanier – review:

Lanier describes a couple who found love on an online dating site and whose subsequent marriage has proved long-lasting. In his economy of compensation, if 30 years later another young couple is paired up using some of the statistical data supplied by the first couple’s compatibility, then the latter should receive a tiny royalty payment for the use of this information.

Science fiction. What’s the point?
