Closer to the he(art)

I started to think about the relationship of art to humanity recently because I was trying to figure out why I was profoundly sad over the death of a musician and writer I had never met.

The future is now

Consider what we have in 2020 that we didn’t have at the end of 2009: Alexa and Siri and smart appliances; Uber and Lyft, the iPad, Netflix streaming, Spotify, Venmo, even self-driving cars.
