Happy 2018! Cusp of the Future

Happy 2018! Cusp of the Future
2017's an absolute banger of a year! We witnessed the beginning of the end of two great superpowers of the past centuries due to fear and an unwillingness to embrace change, and the awakening of a sleeping giant that finally seems ready and eager to take over the reins. We had one of the biggest gold rushes ever to fall into our laps but what takes the ticket is that said gold was absolutely intangible. Like the parting of the Red Sea, new technology separates the forward-thinking from the fearful, and the divide will only get larger and more pronounced, at an even faster pace. Will you ride the wave of humanity's new age or be left gasping for breath and struggling to stay afloat?

It's not all dire, though: I believe we're at the cusp of humanity's Golden Age, where AI and robotics handle most work; humans survive and thrive on universal basic income, and we enter a second Renaissance where art and culture flourish like never before, and people are fulfilled and happy as all basic needs are met and everyone is able to find and pursue their purpose. After which the Singularity hits and we either evolve or get wiped out. Fingers crossed!

That's the utopian fork we're hoping for. The flip side is Community's Meow Meow Beenz or Black Mirror's Nosedive where everyone is assigned a social rating number and your entire life stems from that number. Terrifying, but won't happen, surely? It's already started: http://www.wired.co.uk/article/chinese-government-social-credit-score-privacy-invasion 

Mandatory in China by 2020. That's 3 years away. I'm an optimist but the minutes to midnight have never seemed scarcer.

Anyway it only seems we owe it to ourselves to live life to the fullest while we still can! Lembas has only launched for 3 short months but it's been so incredibly fulfilling to be of value to people already, and our only desire is to be even more convenient and palatable.
