Damns, this one made me think:
"I sort of wish I had a better hobby than reading hacker news. Today I saw a house for sale, built in the 80s, lots of outdoor entertainment stuff for neighborhood parties. Vacant, crumbling, dead. Reminded me. Kids, seriously, this used to really happen. Every day, all the neighborhood kids would play ball games at somebody’s house, and the adults would walk over for about an hour and talk to each other. Adults all tried to outdo each other for the nicest house and best backyard for this kind of thing. Nobody does this anymore. Might as well buy that trailer in Space Park Way and a VR headset. I always thought RP1 was so banal; I was hoping for a more nuanced and unpredictable dystopia."
