    “... I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. I just sat there at a plain round table as my audience was brought to me: five super-wealthy guys — yes, all men — from the upper echelon of the hedge fund world. After a bit of small talk, I realized they had no interest in the information I had prepared about the future of technology. They had come with questions of their own.

    The Event. That was their euphemism for the environmental collapse, social unrest, nuclear explosion, unstoppable virus, or Mr. Robot hack that takes everything down.

    ...they were preparing for a digital future that had a whole lot less to do with making the world a better place than it did with transcending the human condition altogether and insulating themselves from a very real and present danger of climate change, rising sea levels, mass migrations, global pandemics, nativist panic, and resource depletion. For them, the future of technology is really about just one thing: escape.

    I wonder what makes these super fools think they would want to survive the apocalypse?

    You don't get to start getting even if you don't survive.

    All the money in the world won't do you any good if people are fighting for food. If it comes down to starving to death, you wont sell that last morsel within 50 miles for any amount. If the SHTF in some form or another, your skills had best be on how to live WITHOUT tech, since electricity will likely become non existent.
