Questions after watching Corning’s Day of Glass

I wonder, in a world of ubiquitous, seamless, persistent & intuitive computing – will we finally have information symmetry or will new means of ensuring an advantage of asymmetry occur? If the 3D printing revolution does occur, and our fabrication of atoms really takes us into a post scarcity economy, then perhaps there will no longer be an incentive to maintain asymmetry of information – or will there? Perhaps a world of all information at your fingertips and no scarcity will be one where competitive advantage is derived from creative use of knowledge rather than knowledge itself.

I ponder this world the same way religious people ponder an afterlife.
