not into a denial of service or similar anymore
some new concepts still require investigation
looking up a bunch of protocols and standards, the new idea of 'crippling' or limiting the interface, and ads and facebook aren't the only target any more

At the moment English is the closest thing we have to a global language but it needs to become more anarchic and/or democratic. Currently the anglophone centre countries want to have their cake and eat it; they want English to be a global language but they still control the use of it. While English is well-known for it's ability to adopt new words from other cultures, there is still a hugely paternalistic way in which this is done.

"non-native" English learners around the world have to put up with a myriad of very culturally specific words and idioms in english texts. Yet, if an English speaker from a non anglophone country wishes to insert their own culural concepts into an English text, they are usually forced to italicise it or define it, rather than letting it be. The reason being that they have to pander to anglophones. A future English should be more loose with words from different cultures and allow more flexibility from non-anglophone cultures.

What music will be popular in the future?
My prediction is that people will get fed up with all the technology and electronics, to the point that non-electric instruments make comeback. Expect a lot of horns and real actual drums instead of drum machines and synths. Also in the electronic music field the more tribal sounding genres will gain popularity for the same reason, people want some contrast to their cybernetic lives.

Theories welcome and feel free to post songs, let this be the one music thread in futurism.

I dunno. Maybe all those fags calling themselves musicians on the internet when they actually only make gay dubstep in FL studio will fuck off. But I doubt it. That would be the best case scenario.

Hopefully real music will become a more popular thing and not just some electronic fad that everyone seems obsessed with. I need more shows, gigs, tours, lessons, jam sessions, etc. And I play basic keys, guitar, some bass, drums, and I'm an audio engineer. I also have a 50k dollar education and degree in music.

It really chaps my ass when some 18 year old senior acts like they are on the same level as me or deserve more work than I do because they can press play in a DAW. I fucking hate all this dubstep house wave whatever the fuck. It has took the barrier of entry (actually learning to be a musician) away and just made dickheads soak up more morsels of an already dead industry with halfassed shit. I saw these faggots all the time in music school. Some middle class white boy shows up with a pair of beats on his head and all he cares about is making drum loops or farting around with synths. Meanwhile, the serious people are spending hundreds of hours in the practice rooms while these fuckups goof off in the student lounge or just don't show up. Then at the end of the year, 20 people in the class are down to me, Doug and Jon. Not because the classes were hard, but because nobody got the practice hours logged. Then you see them bitch about how they are struggling or how music school is suuuucchh a waste of money and effort and how they wished they would have just bought a live rig or built their own studio but mom'n'dad wouldn't spring for 20k in toys. Then in turn, after arguing with the teachers and bad mouthing them and the school at every chance, you look into a school and they have 7-10% graduation rates and that causes the state to put the screws to the school because of stupid middle class parents sending Billy Fuckup to get a degree as Eric Clapton when Billy really just wants to sleep all day and jerk off to hentai.

But I'm way off topic. Of course, this isn't my canned response of, "Well, HousecoreVapourwave isn't my thing but I can respect it." that I'…

I think most successful musicians have spent less time learning. You're pretty much at the far end.

However most of them did actually do some graft even if it was just practicing for half an hour every week night, a couple of hours at weekends and playing open mic nights every week until they got good. You don't need to go to anything like the lengths you did to be a great musician.

I used to hang with a guy who does "futuristic psytrance". He's spent half his life promoting metal gigs and plays guitar at a fucking high level, I know he's got serious chops. He's got the musical knowledge but he makes more money giving lessons to psytrance wannabes and playing festivals in europe. I think he applies the musical knowledge. Plus he's technical as fuck, he researches the and pours love into everything he does.

However yes, if your response is really only about the countless hacks who have no recognition beyond 15 friends on soundcloud then yes. However even electronic music includes a lot of genuine musicians. In the end it's not about electronic music sucking as a genre but about how low it makes the bar for entry as you said.

I think every genre of substance will continue to evolve and cross polinate with other genres except punk because punk is closed as fuck and throws out anything outside it's existing template and stagnates into mediocrity while it's closest relatives (and some more distant genres) pick up it's cast offs and thrive.

Depends on your definition of successful. Most people say successful and immediately describe rock stars who actually did just make it lucky and almost all those guys will fall into poverty when they stagnate, and have no other career and can just play their songs. Hell, look at Mayhem for example. One of if not the most prolific black metal band who've reinvented then genre at least 2 times came through and played their 2nd most well known album for its 20th anniversary and they filled ~250 tickets at a 400 person show in a major US city. Then there are likes of Saliva who made a ton of money, but will end up burning it all up before they are 50. Then when they are spending their last years regaling old tales, what will it be for when they are broke and irrelevant?

I define success in music personally as being able to support yourself on music if you actually like doing it for the remainder of your life. But everyone else who isn't really invested think it is making 400k dollars in one night. And I also recognize you can get by on bar night after bar night just playing the same 200 classic rock songs. I know lots of people who do that. I know lots of musicians who do the stuff they don't want to. I've had to teach dubstep shit before to make money. It is what the market wants so you do what is in demand.

I was mostly just annoyed at the electronica area of music. They really cause a massive issue for the school I went to (and probably ever other music school) which I am loyal to and always have the biggest fucking ego's ever. They don't know shit, can't do shit, then act like they are the coolest fucking guy to ever bless your presence. Kinda like the 17 y/o DJ with 2 Peavey PA speakers and an Ipod.

I also spent a mountain of time learning music and other instruments just so that I can pull as many gigs as possible. My main thing is drumming. And within that group, I can play nearly any genre you can think of and do a show relatively comfortably. But I can also show up to the same amount of shows on guitar and bass and keep my head above water. Even with reading which hardly anyone seems to care about. (Which I fucking hated reading for 3-4 years solid.[spo…

How will currency change in the future, or will it stay the same? Will we be buying our soycaf with cold hard fiat dollars, bitcoins, labor vouchers, bottle caps, or something entirely different?

My favorite idea for future currency is TIME! All the work will be as valuable, and with the smart watches and -glasses and -boxers we can automatize the measure system so that everyone's working hours are counted laser sharp. Then you simply trade your work time to someone elses time in the form of goods.

If you really think about it, money already is time. Money is a representation of the value of human labor, when you get down to it, based (roughly, either on the scale of hours or years) on how much time it takes a person of a specified skill level to complete a task.

Once we have post-scarcity manufacturing, the value of human labor will plummet to basically $0 in terms of capital costs. So we will probably have to revert to the original currency; reputation. The internet already has a shade of this; after all, what's more valuable to a large company, a couple million bucks or a couple million followers on twitter?

It was like this in ancient times too. If you broke your leg on the hunt, but you were a good guy, they would probably do what they could to keep you alive, even though it would cost food for the whole tribe. But if you were an asshole, they would be more inclined just to let you die. So really, since money is just a contrivance for organizing human behavior relative to each other, once the contrivance is gone, all that will be left is the natural organization people create; whether they want to work together or not.

The concept of a reputation-based currency has been explored in fiction as the 'Whuffie' : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whuffie

yeah no it's obviously not. it's supposed to be balanced that way but in reality there is an enormous amount of convulution because economies are really just based upon power structures than any reasonable expendature of labor. im sure this will be realized as the great evil of our time soon enough.

Money is a medium for allocating resources, it measures and stores value and can be used for trade. It's pretty good and for a long time it was the best possible solution but I think we can do better now. Sadly it doesn't relate to time and in theory it should instead reflect the value added by an action.

Ideally when trading a it should be occupy a point where it is worth more than one party is giving up, but the other party gets more value from what they receive than they could get using the money any other way, for example someone is 100 units for their work, they value the time and energy at 90 units and the person buying would get value worth 110 units from it. Everyone wins. In reality this does not always occur and I would go as far as saying it's never reliably done this and a lot of people push to make it happen even less. Things like inaccurate information, uneven markets and the like ensure this (advertising that deceives, uneven bargaining, leveraging the legal system to exploit people, and natural monopolies that are run inefficiently either by a poorly managed government organisation or by a private organisation who exploits everyone ruthlessly seeking profit maximisation and not efficiency and so on).

So yeah. Money needs to change or be replaced.

Hey guys, let's talk about this. If a period of Global government did arise, what do you think would become the capitol?

And sure, most of us on this board might be ready for a leaderless future run by enlightened technology, but a lot of the normals aren't there yet and they're probably gonna need a transition phase.

The obvious choices seem like the big ones. The ones with a lot of history and institutions. It'd be kind of cooler if they went with something smaller though, like how a lot of US state's biggest cities aren't the capitols.

What would you nominate?

Intelligence is still thought to be an emergent property. At some point we'll make a powerful enough computer with a learning algorithm that's sophisticated enough to be intelligent and then... At some point after that maybe we'll get intelligence.

I imagine our attempts to replicate intelligence or aspects of it will make it more likely or maybe we'll even be able to understand enough to replicate it before realising we've already made it.

We can't do it yet but we'll do it eventually, on purpose or by accident.

My geometry is the best but doesn't tibet have the tallest mountain in the world?

This is a great place, I second if a space station capital is too much.

Sounds like how we think tbh fam. Wait am I a robot?

I am 100% sure that we are capable of building ouselves a Star Trek TNG future.
However, I think what will really happen is a Warhammer 40k future. And that's my optimistic opinion, I look forward to it because it will be fascinating.

Personally, I think it will be periods of ST:TNG interspersed with periods of WH40K, with occasional flashes into moments of Ian Bank's Culture like ascendance (and perhaps occasional genuine desolation and apocalypse.)

Anywho, the present idea of the US Space Corps is garbage and must be destroyed. Is the militarization of space inevitable? Yes. Do we want to delay it as long as possible, especially considering volatile global geopolitics? Abso-fucking-lutely. Do we want the present US Administration and military-industrial complex to be remembered in time immemorial as responsible for its formation? ABSOLUTELY NO WAY OMGWTFBBQSHITNIGGERWHATREUDOING?

Besides, if it were as presently proposed and you got in, most likely you would spend 99% of your time hacking satellites and/or preventing satellite hacking from a computer chair in the back of some air force base. Not very starfleet. NASA will still be NASA, and perhaps more crucially, SpaceX will still be SpaceX (et. al) is you want to really have the faith of the heart, and go where your heart can take you.

No that's cyber division. Also new branch of armed forces. Only their guns are called 1337 h4ck2.

Also it's my understanding the military side will get more ships in orbit and maybe a Moon base. NASA hasn't put ships in orbit for a while. Talking conventional style manned craft that isn't a crapsule. If NASA rides with the mil-space they an keep exploring while mil-space provides expansion.

Space X can keep diggign tunnels or landing old tech rockets and virgin galactic can drive up the civies but those private programs will never ever get this species off this rock that task is too great. They can just service the regular jack offs and yes rich ass wipes are regular jack off in space because they are so stupid death is almost certain.
