If I finish this stuff, perhaps I can read "The Automation Charade" from Logic mag:
"McDonald’s customers aren’t on the brink of some hyper-digitized foray into commerce that we might recognize from sci-fi fare like Minority Report or Black Mirror. Instead, they’re, if anything, on course to re-experience the rather quaint dining chambers of the midcentury automat."
"As I waited for my lunch to be prepared, the man in front of me appeared astonished to receive his food. “How did the app know my order would be ready twenty minutes early?” he marveled, clutching his phone. “Because that was actually me,” the server said. “I sent you a message when it was done.” "
oh snap, Jefferson, dumbwaiters, and the effective hiding of the labor of the people he enslaved... this is a good piece.
